Dashboard

Overview

The Welcome panel helps you get started with documentation and useful shortcuts. Click the x to close.

The dashboard shows running instances of standalone Simulations and Scenarios (groups of simulations)

You will need to know how to create Simulations and Scenarios before using the Dashboard.

Simulations and Scenarios on the dashboard include a Journal which logs all activity. Journal entries can be filtered by HTTP status code (eg 501) or using text search. Note the search fields work together - status code is ANDed with text search, blank values are ignored.

Simulations

Click “+ Add” to add a new Simulation to the dashboard — it will start running automatically

Status

Status displays running or paused

Name / Label

Click for information about the running Simulation and to view the Journal.
Note: A label is displayed if a user-friendly label was entered.

Mode

Mode is greyed-out if simulate only
Modes can be selected if the simulation has been configured with a Target URL (see Create Simulations for more information about modes)

Simulation

Click the Simulation name to update the configuration of the running simulation. The simulation will be changed on the fly, changes are saved to the running simulation in memory and are not persisted.

Behaviour

Restart — start running
Pause — pause running simulation
Remove — remove simulation from dashboard

Scenarios
