The user behavior profile describes the way the system simulates a common user behavior on the website. You can customize the profile according to your device specificity.

To view a user behavior profile:

  1. On the Test Scenario screen, in the device details section, expand the target header using the disclosure arrow on the task header.
  2. Under the Profile Details section, find the User Behavior field.

LoadView provides three user behavior profiles:

  • Normal User Simulation
  • Maximum Speed Simulation (for Stress Testing)
  • Custom User Simulation

Normal User slows down page interaction and adds random delays between actions ((Navigating or Go To actions)) of 3 to 6 seconds.

Maximum Speed runs the test scripts as fast as possible, essentially attempting to stress the server to maximum capacity.

Custom simulates a slower user interacting with the website with the slowest page interactions and random delays between actions (Navigating or Go To actions) of 0 to 30 seconds. You can set a custom delay range for a task in the Minimum delay and Maximum Delay boxes of the Profile Details section in seconds. In case of creating a web application test using EveryStep Scripting Tool, the MouseMoveSpeed, MouseClickSpeed, and TypeTextSpeed values can be set as well.

To change a single target profile, in the corresponding Profile Details section, change available values.

To change and apply the load test profile to all included targets simultaneously:

  1. Click Adjust User Behavior in the upper-left corner of the device section.
  2. Select the profile type you need.
  3. In the Custom profile case, set custom parameters in the corresponding boxes or click Reset to no delay to set all the values to zero (the Maximum Speed profile).
  4. Click Apply.

The profile will be applied to the currently edited device.
