The OneDrive for Business Web Simulation automates user actions and measures the time needed by leveraging the web API.


Simulation Steps

  • Authentication

Based on the configured authentication type (basic auth, modern auth, adfs, certificate based auth)


  • Create Folder

Creates a folder  called 'panagenda_onedrive_sensor'


  • Upload File (size of file can be adjusted in configuration)

Uploads a random file with random content named 'random.txt with size specified by config/filesize in the folder created before. If the file already exists it will be deleted.
Measures time (in ms) and speed (kilobytes per second).


  • Download File
