Sample Projects (Load Tests)

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.51, last modified on March 21, 2024

ReadyAPI includes sample projects that show how you can create simple load tests.

The changes you make to sample projects cannot be saved. This means, that if you change a sample project, you have to save it as a new one. The original file will remain unchanged.

Load Testing Samples

Project Description
Baseline Load Sample Tests the attached virtual service with a constant load of 3 virtual users.
Fixed Load Sample Simulates 5 virtual users arriving to the attached virtual service every second.
Variable Load Sample Simulates a load against the target service varying from 0 to 10 virtual users in sine-wave pattern.
