Pinned topic Throttling not working properly

‏2012-12-07T17:59:04Z |
I have set a throttling limit of 20tps as below:

SLM action - Throttle
Threshold Interval Length - 1
Threshold Interval Type - Fixed
Threshold Algorithm - Greater than
Threshold Type - Count All
Threshold Level - 20
High-Low Release Level - 0
Burst Limit - 0
Reporting Aggregation Interval - 0

But with LoadRunner or SOAPUim, when i am setting a TPS rate of 18tps, throttling starts to happen. Why is it behaving like this? What is the fix for this?

    It's been my experience that DP just doesn't do well with an interval length of one second. I've gotten pretty good success with 5 second intervals.

    It always worked for me, only catch was in order to get 1 tps I had to specify the threshold ie required minus one. Even concurrency worked fine as well for me. What is the firmware level? I would try 5 TPS ie 4 as threshold then gradually increase it to 20 to see identify the pattern.
    Hope that helps.
