LoadRunner - Ramp up and Ramp down the schedule

How do i calculate the ramp up and ramp down times for the application?any formula/logic plz

While i apply how do i need to get formalize the scenario schedule(includes Ramp up and ramp down) for my real time scenario?

Take an ex: Login-Logout a web application
Tool : Loadrunner-Controller

I Created a script to login-logout 25 Concurrent User

While I schedule it for a basic schedule it is taking approximately 12M:15secons for 25 users

For real time how do i do ramp up while login and after logout how do i ramp down the time.

Every time for different app's how do i handle this?

How do i schedule this

For a seemingly easy question, this one can get pretty complex.

I'd start with how your test is defined. Are your stakeholders more concerned with individual user behavior or are they looking at it from more of a throughput standpoint?

Reason being, your rampin time may depend on the pacing you use for your test. If your goal is 1000 transactions in an hour and you're using 100 VUs with shorter pacing, your rampin time is likely short because your user delays are also short. If you're using 1000 users, you'll want to increase the rampin time. If you don't, your rampin will stress the system harder than your targeted test, or steady state period would.

I hope that wasn't too confusing.
