Runtime controller

It fixes the time limit for its children to be run. If you have specified 20 seconds then the samples will be generated for 20 seconds.

Create a new test Plan. Add a thread group to the test plan. Add a Runtime Controller to the Thread group and under the controller add four HTTP Request Element sampler. Name them as 1,2, 3, 4 and put Server name: and Path:/

Give the Run time as 25 seconds in the controller. Run the script and observe in View listener tree.


In view listener tree select the first sample and under sampler result tab note the sample start time.


Similarly get the start time of the last sample. Their difference gives the Run time we have given.

In this example:-

First sample -Sample Start: 2009-02-05 12:05:06 IST
Last sample- Sample Start: 2009-02-05 12:05:31 IST
The difference comes=00:00:25
