When you play your script back Badboy records statistics about each page for you so that you can monitor the progress and review what happened later on. Badboy makes it possible to quickly see this information for any item in your script via the Summary View.
The Summary View is the tabbed view that displays by default in the bottom left of your main Badboy window. The figure below shows how it looks:
The following table explains the numbers that are shown in the summary:
|Played||The number of script items that played and returned a response|
|Succeeded||The number of script items that played and returned a successful response|
|Failed||The number of script items that played and returned an error response|
|Assertions||The number of assertions that have failed. (see Assertions)|
|Timeouts||The number of Timeouts that have occurred (see Timeouts)|
|Avg Time (ms)||The average time in milliseconds for items that played and received a response..|
|Max Time (ms)||The maximum time for any individual recorded response.|
Summaries are hierarchical - that is, each summary is actually a summary of it's children. When you select an item the Script Tree, Badboy displays the summary for that particular item in the Summary View. If you expand the item in the Script Tree and select its children then you can view the breakdown of that summary for each of it's children.
If you like you can add your own documentation or notes to the information displayed in the Summary View. This can be a convenient way to explain what your script is doing. To do this, select the item in your script with the mouse and press "Ctrl-Shift-d".
