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, on the Test Scenario screen, in the device details section, click Adjust User Behavior.

LoadView provides two user behavior profiles:

  • Normal User Simulation
  • 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 that simulate how typical users will interact.

Custom allows simulating a user interacting with the website with random delays between actions (Navigating or Go To actions). The delay may vary between 0 and 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 the case of creating a web application test using EveryStep Scripting Tool, the MouseMoveSpeed orMouseMoveDelay (for Selenium), MouseClickSpeed, and TypeTextSpeed values can be set as well.

For example, selecting minimal delays runs the test as quickly as possible to execute stress tests, for example, and try to stress your system to find where and when the system maxes out.

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.

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