I have a question about the effect of "Clear cache on each iteration" on the number of iterations during the test run. I have a test where I have run several times with this option both enabled and disabled, and for all the tests the iteration count is relatively unchanged. I would expect that when I have disabled "Clear cache on each iteration", the number of iterations would increase since the client doesn't have to download the image, css, js, etc files after the first iteration - leaving more time during the test to complete more iterations. This doesn't seem to be the case.
Can anyone please explain why?
Here are the settings for Browser Cache that I am using:
[Enabled] Simulate broswer cache
[Enabled] Cache URLs requiring content (HTMLs)
[Disabled] Specify URLs requiring content in addition to HTML pages
[Disabled] Check for newer versions of stored pages every visit to the page
[Enabled] Download non-HTML resources
[Enabled] Simulate a new user on each iteration
[Enabled/Disabled] Clear cache on each iteration
[Disabled] Simulate prefetch and prerender
