Subject Re: Diff between "Uniform Random Timer" and "Constant Timer"

There's a rather fundamental point missing here. You can plan your test to
run with X threads with zero timer controls or X threads with lots of timer
controls, this might give you 1 TPS, 0.0005 TPS or 3678 TPS. But so what?
Until you actually work out what your required target load is then what's
the point? Why are you even bothering performance testing if you don't know
what your requirements are? How will you know when to stop?

Timers are tools that allow you to define a target thorough, esp/ the
Constant Throughput Timer and not having them is usually a mistake. But
simply adding them alone will not solve this problem for you. Just because
they exist in your plan it does not make your plan correct!
