How to: Change the Think Profile

Using think times in a load test can be useful in creating more accurate load simulations. You can choose whether think times are used or ignored in load tests. To indicate that the think times in the Web tests should be used, change the think profile. The think profile applies to an entire scenario. If you want to use think times in some Web tests but not in others, you must add them to different scenarios. For more information about scenarios, see About Scenarios.

Initially, you set whether you use think times in your load tests when you create the load test using the Load Test wizard. For more information, see How to: Specify Scenarios.

For more information about the settings, see About Think Times.
