Clicking the Stop button (either in the Composition Editor toolbar or from the Central list > Player Status display) displays the Stop dialog box and a choice between Stop and Force Stop (as shown on the right).

  • Stop

Same as Stop, except that no further information is written to the Result, and any pending, unwritten Result data is discarded.

  • Force Stop

Same as Stop, except that no further information is written to the Result, and any pending, unwritten Result data is discarded. No unwritten test results are presented. Force Stop does not restart the CloudTest Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

 

It should be noted that in some cases, particularly with larger tests executing across many servers and locations, that using either Stop or Force Stop may require additional time proportional to the scale of the given test.

 

Note: Opening a result for a playing composition will reconnect to the “live”, already-playing test composition with the Play tab active; the state will be running and the data and charts will display the currently active data, and the composition can be stopped from there.
