TruClient: doubt about Average Transaction Response Time

Hi all!

I've a doubt about the Average metric on a TruClient navigation. This is an example image from a run with 1 Vuser, duration 10 minutes and a loop on "s1_02_homePage": 


Since the average should be 1/TPS, and in this particular case, is 0,139, 


I would have expected that the Average should be 7.19 seconds (1/0,139). Also the number of passed (87) does not match with the formula and the duration time. 

Can anyone explain me how Average is calculated in TruClient? Maybe this metric had a particular behavior with a loop on the navigation? 

Thank you very much,

Hi @lb1, What do you mean with Loop. Iterations? What is the pacing?

I suggest that you set your Pacing at a fixed interval. You should be able to calculate the number of intervals per 10 min. But make sure that your pacing interval is at least 30% larger than your free-running loop time.

Also important that transaction times might (or not) include think time waste time etc. So you might enable the option RTS -> Miscellaneous -> Define each Action as Transaction to have a reference on your Iterations.

The figures you represent does not make sense to me you might elaborate in more detail about what you expect and what you see.
