VuGen - Scripting

Hi all,


When I reply the script in VuGen, the following message is displayed in Output window -


Script_Name(LineNumber): Notify: Transaction "Transaction Name" ended with "Pass" status (Duration: 134.8640 Wasted Time: 2.0757).


What is this "Wasted Time"?

What is the significance of "Wasted Time"?

Re: VuGen - Scripting



From the product help:

  • Time spent on activities whose purpose is to support test analysis, but would never be performed by a browser user.


    So what does it actually mean?

    Here are a few examples:

    1. Siebel-Web protocol – first web_reg_save_param… step that uses Siebel correlation library takes time on DLL  invocation and this time reported as “wasted”.
    2. The similar case exists with openSSL components (additional 1 second before handshake).
    3. Time spent of text search (web_reg_find) also reported as “wasted”.

    So basically it is the time that was wasted in LR code which would not be wasted by a real user.
