Sends a start message after a determined interval (Start At), followed by a stop message after a certain period of time (Duration). Typically used to automate enabling/disabling of Generator Components as seen in Example usage below.
||Used to enable/disable the component.
||When to activate (how long to wait before sending an enable message).|
||How long to wait before sending a disable message.|
|Unit for time||This affects both Start At and Duration.|
|Mode||Single will run the run the interval once while Repeat will constantly repeat the interval.|
|Output||Connect this to the component that is controlled by the interval component (for example a Generator).|
- A start (enable) signal, followed by a stop (disable) signal
- Start At
- Duration - This is the amount of time the trigger should run for, must be higher than 0
- Unit (% of test, seconds, minutes)
The Interval Scheduler's Start At is set to 15 seconds, its Duration to 1 second and its Mode to Repeat. This will make the Interval Scheduler activate the Fixed Rate Generator for 1 second every 16th second (note that it will start with a 15 second delay before the first activation). Overall, the example project will send 32 requests in a burst, every 16th second, to http://www.google.com
