Creating User Behavior Models and Defining the Behavior Mix

A behavior file template can be exported by clicking the button “Generate Template” within the Markov Session Controller. This file can then be edited in a spread sheet application or a text editor. The sum of probabilities in each row must be  1. This step needs to be performed for each behavior model to be used.

The behavior mix, i.e. the assignment of behavior models to their relative frequency of occurrence during execution, is defined in the configuration dialog of the Markov Session Controller. Entries can be added and removed using the buttons “Add” and “Delete”. Again, the sum of relative frequencies must be  1. Absolute and relative filenames can be used. Relative filenames are always relative to the directory JMeter has been started from. Figure 5 shows an example behavior mix.

If an error occurs while loading the behavior models, the entire test is aborted immediately. Details concerning this error are written to the file jmeter.log.
