Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

200 responses:

Indicates the percentage of requests that were successfully serviced by the web server during the last measurement period.

Percent

 

Errors:

Indicates the percentage of responses with errors during the last measurement period.

Percent

Responses with a 400 or 500 status code are counted as errors.

300 responses:

Indicates the percentage of responses in the last measurement period with a status code in the range of 300-399.

Percent

300 responses could indicate page caching on the client browsers or redirection of requests. A sudden change in this value is indicative of a problem condition.

400 errors:

Indicates the percentage of responses in the last measurement period with a status code in the range of 400-499.

Percent

A high value indicates a number of missing/error pages.

500 errors:

Indicates the percentage of responses in the last measurement period with a status code in the range of 500-600.

Percent

Since responses with a status code of 500-600 indicate server side processing errors, a high value reflects an error condition.
