Ramp Up 30 seconds This is the amount of time at the beginning of a test mix during which NetBench ignores any file operations that occur.
Ramp Down 30 seconds This is the amount of time at the end of a test mix during which NetBench ignores any file operations that occur.
Length 660 seconds The total time for which NetBench will run a test. It includes both the Ramp Up and Ramp Down times.
Delay 5 seconds How long a test system is to wait before starting a test after it is told by the controller to start. Each test system will pick a random number less than or equal to this value to stagger the start times of all test systems.
Think Time 0 seconds How long each test system will wait before performing the next piece of work.
Workspace 20 MB The size of the data files used by a test system, each of which has its own workspace.
Save Workspace Yes The last mix has this parameter set to No to clean up after the test is over.
Number of Mixes 11 Each mix tests the server with a different number of test systems. Mix 1 uses 1 system, Mix 2 uses 12 systems, and subsequent mixes increment the number of test systems by 12.
Number of Clients 120 The maximum number of test systems available to be used by any test mix. The actual number of test systems that participate in a mix depends on the number specified in the mix definition and whether an error occurred to take a test system out of a particular mix.
