Timers and counters

You can use the BlackBerry® Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator to configure both timers and counters. Timers control the workload that the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator is testing, and counters display the number of messages that the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator sends to BlackBerry® Enterprise Server or receives from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

Timers regulate the number of messages that the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator sends for each user account in an 8-hour period (a typical business day). You can configure the number of messages that the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator sends by configuring the timers in a workload profile.

Counters calculate the data packets and messages that the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator sends and receives during a simulation. You can view the counters on the Statistics tab of the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator. To reset the counters to 0, click the Reset Counters button.

Each BlackBerry Enterprise Server with a separate UID has its own set of counters. You can reset the counters to 0 by clicking the Reset Counters button.

You can also use the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator to view counters for messages that only the BlackBerry Enterprise Server sends, such as IT policies and service books. The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator receives that information and sends acknowledgments to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
