eValid -- LoadTest Parameter Definitions
eValid Home

This page shows the correlation between the entries in each line of the eValid Scenario Editor and the resulting eValid *.evl file.

Scenario Editor Screen and Resulting File
Here is a very simple entry in the eValid LoadTest Scenario Editor:

Here is the corresponding eValid LoadTest script that corresponds to this entry after you click "Save and Load LoadTest Script":

LoadTest Script With Single Track Playback

The parameters in the _eValid command are as follows:

  1. _eValid -- Invokes an eValid copy of specified Serve Type and specified script.
    >> Only *evl's can have _eValid commands.
    >> An *evl file can also contain ANY other eValid commands you wish. It is often good practice to allow a short delay between each _eValid to allow time for loading.

  2. script.evs -- The script file to be played by this eValid sub-browser.
    >> This script MUST have been parameterized if you have ANY $NAME=value pairs (see below). Otherwise, the parameters will be ignored.

  3. user-identifier -- The group for this user.
    >> You can use any string here. All of the tests with the same identifier will be aggretated into one user report.
    >> If you leave this blank then eValid assumes every test is in a separate track, and automatically names them with distinct names.

  4. 5 -- The repetition count for this script.
    >> You can use any positive integer here.

  5. $NAME1=value1 $NAME2=value2 -- The $NAME=value pairs that are automatically applied to the named script (so that instances of the parameters are string-substituted).
    >> There is no limit on the number of pairs you can include here.

  6. -pm 1.0 -- The set of command line variations that apply to this eValid (here the playback multiplier is set to 1.0).
    >> ANY valid command line parameter can go here.

  7. 1 -- The eVlite simultaneous-user count (this is used only if you have chosen LITE as the Load Type.
    >> The eVlite maximum number of simulated eVlite users per instance is 1,000.
