Web Rest - Hit per sec Graph


I am using Loadrunner 12.53, Web Rest.

I am having a script with only one GET method.

Test Scenario: 50 users simultaneously for 5 min.

Hit per second is 260 until 3 min but after 3 min, it drops to 25-24.

I run 4-5 tests and all have the same result. 

What went wrong after 3 min? Why it is dropping so much?

Re: Web Rest - Hit per sec Graph


You are entering the most fun part of the Performance Engineer actual work - Post run analysis 🙂

You should correlate this graph with the different monitors graphs you set up for this test and see what happens to your AUT at this point: does the CPU spike? is memory leaking? if there's a database involeved somewhere, what's it status at this time?

The one graph won't tell you anything without additional data and research on your part on all your application's components.

Good Luck,
