Create realistic populations

To achieve realistic load scenarios and therefore relevant test results, Populations must closely simulate a set of real users connecting to your application. Including Virtual Users that behave differently in a Population and finely tuning that Population are therefore essential.

  1. Define Virtual Users having different behaviors: Users connecting to your application will necessarily have different profiles each behaving differently. The first step in achieving realistic scenarios is therefore to create different types of Virtual Users and to include them in a Population.

    For example, the Population called "RegularPopulation" includes three distinct types of users:

  2. Finely tune your Populations:
