Subject Scoping rules and behavior of Constant Timer
Date Tue, 03 May 2005 18:49:37 GMT
What is the expected behavior of the Constant Timer as a child of a Sampler (HTTP for example)?
The documentation states that this component is 'strictly hierarchical', however what I find
is not consistent with this statement. Here is the script:

Test Plan 
--->Thread Group 1
---->---->Loop Controller (5 iterations)
---->---->---->HTTP Request 1.1
---->---->---->---->Constant Timer (10000)
---->---->---->HTTP Request 1.2
---->---->---->HTTP Request 1.3

Actual: Every ten seconds, requests 1.1 - 1.3 are issued sequentially without delay between
requests, i.e. 1.1 -> 1.2 -> 1.3 -> sleep 10sec -> 1.1 -> 1.2 -> 1.3 ->
sleep 10sec...
Expected: 10 second delay after request 1.1, no delay between other requests, i.e. 1.1 ->
sleep 10sec -> 1.2 -> 1.3 -> 1.1 -> sleep 10 sec...

Thus it appears there is no way to set a timer for an individual sampler that needs extra
time (such as submitting form data...) within a loop controller.
