If you want to simulate the cache usage through statistics, it can also be done through the Test-Stress option provided. To use Test-Stress, follow the steps given below:
On the statistics board, click on the Test-Stress button. This opens up a dialog box through which you can customize your simulation.
In the dialogue box, you can choose the Tess-Stress timer for 10 or 30 seconds or 1, 3, or 5 minutes, depending on your choice. This is basically the time for which your data will be continuously added in the cache.
You can view that the data is being added in the cache through the counters shown on screen. After the set expiration interval has elapsed, the counters will show data being removed from the cache.
