what is the best way to compute transactions per hour in neoload. Is the Hit in results > container specify the same thing i.e. no of transactions?
In NeoLoad, the number of hits of any objects like containers, pages or requests is the number of times that object has been fully executed. That metrics is calculated in a 1 second period but it's up to you to calculate it per hour if needed.
So to answer your questions if you look at that metrics for a container then yes it's the number of transactions.
