About Think Times
[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
Think times are used to simulate human behavior that causes people to wait between interactions with a Web site. Think times occur between requests in a Web test and between test iterations in a load test scenario. Using think times in a load test can be useful in creating more accurate load simulations. You can change whether think times are used or ignored in load tests.
The think profile is a setting that applies to a scenario in a load test. The setting determines whether the think times saved in the individual Web tests are used during the load test. If you want to use think times in some Web tests but not in others, you must place them in different scenarios. For more information about scenarios, see About Scenarios.
Initially, you set whether you use think times in your load tests when you create the load test using the Load Test Wizard. For more information, see How to: Specify Scenarios.
You change whether think times are used in your load tests in the Load Test Editor. For more information, see How to: Change the Think Profile.
The Think Profile options are described in the following list:
