Graphite data


I’m trying to follow the instructions listed here to set up Gatling to send data to Graphite. I can do it, but I don’t actually understand what the quantities are that Graphite is graphing. I know it’s a max, min, and an average, but of what? The Req/s? The Latency?

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thank you,


Basically, there is two types of metrics : users and requests metrics.

Users metrics give you, for each scenario of your simulation :

  • waiting : # of users waiting to start the scenario
  • active : # of users currently running
  • done : # of users who have completed the scenario

Requests metrics give you, for each request and by status (OK, KO and both) :

  • count : Req of requests
  • min and max : Min and Max response time for the request
  • percentilesXX : First and second percentiles, as defined in gatling.conf (defaults are 95th and 99th percentiles)



@Pierre Could you add this to the wiki page, please?

My bad, posted a little bit too fast : count for request metrics is the number of requests/sec.

Thank you so much! :slight_smile:
