Subject Add pacing feature
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2020 09:52:36 GMT
For 3 years I have been using the notion of Pacing an iteration to
facilitate the modeling of the load and also because it is very practical
when we are doing loads with load steps

Pacing is to define a minimum duration for each iteration and wait until
this minimum time has elapsed before moving to the next one.

The pacing could be declare in a new Thread Group field and/or in a new

The main advantage to modify the Thread Group is when an error occur and
the flow is going to the Next Iteration and before start the next iteration
will could wait the pacing time.

With a new component, you could declare a Pacing duration from the
beginning of the thread iteration at the place you want in the script tree.
Usually the Pacing component is  declare at the end of the script but i
could be in the middle of the script or you could have multi Pacing

The duration in the Pacing component could be understand like a minimum
time since the beginning of the iteration and the duration set in the
Pacing component.

Both solutions could be implements : add the Pacing duration in the Thread
Group and the Pacing component to set the minimum time since the beginning
of the iteration.
