When running a Queuing workload, why does the test show a status of finished but no actions are performed?

When running a Queuing workload, why does the test show a status of finished but no actions are performed?

This may be due to the fact that the Stop Virtual User After Simulation Time (Queuing Workload) option is enabled, and a simulation time of 0 is being used when the test is being run. If a Queuing workload with a zero simulation time is executed, then this effectively starts the virtual users and then stops them immediately. As a result, the script looks like it has run, but it never actually executes.

For example, when running a Queuing workload test, a script may be set to generate virtual user output files. However, when the load test is executed and finishes, no output files are generated. This is because the actions in the code, which should write to the output file are never performed, due to the settings above, but the test appears to execute successfully. This applies to any functions, not just output files.

If you uncheck this setting, or use a simulation time in the workload, then the script will run properly and actions will be performed as normal. To enable/disable this setting, navigate to the following in Silk Performer:

[SETTINGS | ACTIVE PROFILE | REPLAY | SIMULATION | SETTINGS | Stop Virtual User After Simulation Time (Queuing Workload)]
