Run Multiplier to Generate Load

Trial & Enterprise Only

As of now, the run multiplier feature is only available as either a Trial or Enterprise feature. If you have a trial account, please contact support via email or the in-app chat feature to request the multiplier.

You can now edit Plans to spin up multiple parallel instances of a single journey. We call this feature a "run multiplier", since it creates several parallel journey runs and it lets you verify that there are no unexpected errors when multiple users attempt to run a set of journeys simultaneously. This feature is not a replacement or complete solution for load testing, although it's a step in that direction!

 

How to enable the Run Multiplier:

  1. Navigate to the "Edit" properties of the Plan to which you'd like to add a Run Multiplier.

Increasing the run multiplier will affect mabl costs

The run multiplier can increase your mabl costs because it results in additional journey runs. Each increment of the multiplier will create an additional set of instances for each permutation of each journey in the plan. So, if you have 4 journeys that you test using 3 browsers, the plan will typically trigger 12 runs. Adding a multiplier factor of 3 will increase that to 12 * 3 = 36 journey runs.

  1. While viewing the editing options, find the "Advanced" section. You can run a journey with a max multiplier of 10.
  1. Save and run the Plan.
