Use this load testing strategy to make sure both your server and test work fine.
This is a load test you run to prepare for later load testing. Unlike the Baseline test, you do not intend to hit the service-level agreement (SLA), just make sure that there are no errors.
After confirming that everything works fine, you create other load tests.
To create smoke tests, we recommend using the Smoke load test template. By default, it will create a test with the following parameters:
|Simulated load||Five virtual users|
|Wait time||One second|
|Warmup time||10 seconds|
|Assertions||Failures – Total|
Time taken – Average
Failures – Per second
|If the assertion fails, the load test stops.|
Here is what your test results may look like:
|Tip:||Tests can fail for a variety of reasons. Some functional tests that work fine will fail when run as load tests. For more information about test steps that may cause errors, see Preparing Functional Test Cases for Load Test.|
