You can stop your test while it's running by clicking the stop button.
You can either stop a test while it's still in the startup phase by clicking the "Abort Test" button...
Or you can stop the test after it's begun running by clicking the stop button to the left of the test name.
If the test is already running when you click the stop button, you'll be presented with two options: you can either terminate the servers or perform a graceful shutdown.
However, if you instead stop the test while it's still in the starting phase, then you will only have the option to terminate servers.
- Graceful Shutdown - This sends a signal to close the test, archive test and log files, then generate an artifacts.zip archive.
- Terminate Servers - Terminates all servers immediately. This will result in the loss of all test and log files (except for the ones you originally uploaded). No artifacts.zip archive will be generated. This should be a last resort, since without any log files, it will be impossible to identify what may have caused a problem.
You can click the "x" icon in the upper-right corner of the window to cancel and continue the test without interruption.
Note: If you manually terminated a test because it hung indefinitely, then check out our knowledge base article on tests that fail to start.
