The Summary Report is the main dashboard view of your test while it is running and after it has finished.
The Summary Report will appear as soon as your test starts to collect data.
Click the reports icon on the upper navigation bar to access the reports list. Most recent reports are shown on top.
The Summary Report is the default view when you click on the report of a specific test.
You'll see the summary panel at the top of the report. This panel showcases key statistics of the test, including:
- Max Users - Maximum number of concurrent users generated at any given point in the test run. (Note: this does NOT refer to the total users, only the total users who ran simultaneously at any given moment. As a result, Max Users may not match your total users, which may be significantly higher.)
- Average Throughput (Hits/s) - The average number of HTTP/s requests per second that are generated by the test.
A note for JMeter tests: BlazeMeter counts unique requests that appear in the JTL file generated during the test. This means that if only high level requests are present in the JTL file, the Hits/s figure relates only to the high level requests. If while configuring the test, you select to include sub-samples in your runs, then HITS/s represents all high level requests and sub-samples (e.g. images, CSSs, JSs etc).
- Errors Rate - The ratio of bad responses out of all responses received.
- Average Response Time - The average amount of time from first bit sent to the network card to the last byte received by the client.
- 90 Percentile of Response Time - The top average value of the first 90% of all samples. Only 10% of the sample is higher than this value.
- Average Bandwidth (MB/s) - The average bandwidth consumption in MegaBytes per second generated by the test.
This section shows key configurations alongside the main categories of responses codes received during the test run. This really helps you grasp the general purpose and performance. These include:
- The Test Duration (HH:MM:SS)
- The Test's Start & End Times.
- The Test Type - JMeter Test, Multi-Test. URL/API Test, Webdriver Test.
- Locations: The geo-locations the load has originated from.
- Response Codes: A breakdown of the HTTP response status codes received during the test run.
- Internal notes about the report.
There are two graphs which indicate the key performance metrics and their trends throughout the duration of the test:
Load Graph - This shows the maximum number of users vs hits/s vs errors rate. In the example above, you can see that while the load increased gradually until it reached its maximum, the hit/s increased rapidly and remained relatively high for the duration of the test and the errors rate stayed at 0%.
Response Time Graph - This shows the maximum number of users vs response times, revealing how the size of the load affects the response times.
