The Environments section is where you must define the details of each environment that you want to test.
Start by adding a new environment. Fill in all the details (note that Description is optional). Make sure that everything is entered correctly and press the save button.
When this is done, you can start configuring the applications you want to test and set thresholds for any applications you would like to be monitored. There are multiple options to choose from. You can start by defining the login options. There are 2 options;
- Log in every X minutes
- Run concurrent session(s)
The difference between these options is that with the "Log in every X minutes" a virtual user will log in to the environment, run the test, and log of. It will then wait for the configured amount of time and do the same actions again. With the "run concurrent session(s)" option, the users will keep logging in, do the actions that are defined and log out. However, they will not wait for a set amount of time and will re-start immediately after logging out.
From Release 3.2.8 you will be able to reorder applications in the scheduling menu. You can do this by clicking on the application drag and drop area and organize them in the order you want PI to run the applications.
When you have finished the schedule, you can start with adding notifications to the environment. The notifications will alert you when a certain threshold has been passed.
If Email Alerting is enabled you will be given the opportunity to setup optional parameters for email triggers.
We have made latency measurements available in release 3.2.8 of Login PI 3. See the following article for requirements needed to collect these metrics. To configure the latency measurements navigate to the environment you want to have it configured for and scroll down to the "notifications" section.
You will now be able to configure latency thresholds and configure email alerting for surpassing the threshold.
