Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Authentication status

Indicates whether the login was successful or not


A value of 100 % indicates that the login has succeeded. The value 0 is indicative of a failed login.

Authentication time

Indicates the time it took to login.


If this value is very high then it could be owing to a configuration issue (i.e. the domain might not be configured properly) or a slow-down/unavailability of the primary domain server.
