Points to note with VuGen and Controller

  • When a script is opened in Controller, run-time settings¬† also gets copied from VUGen to controller. Check out components of LoadRunner.
  • Any changes done in the script and run-time settings are not reflected in the controller unless you refresh them. VUGen.ini
  • Refresh in controller can be done by going to Design > {Highlighting scenario group} that are using script in question > Clicking Details button > Clicking the REFRESH button on the Group Information pop-up window. So next time when controller asks you to load new script iteration settings do the refresh.
  • While doing Save As:
    • Default directory in VUGen can be changed by going to vugen.ini file located under C:\Program Files\HP\LoadRunner\config and appending the required file path to LastScriptPath (as shown on the right).
    • Default directory in Controller can be changed by going to wlrun.ini file located under C:\Program Files\HP\LoadRunner\config and appending the required file path to M_ROOT
  • Note that THINK time is ignored in VUGen while played back as recorded in Controller.

  1. In order to make a Loadrunner license purchasing decision, I understand that one needs to provide number of Controllers and number of Vusers.

    Now, how do we decide on how many controllers are required?
    Can we use 1 controller with any number of Vusers.
    We may need vusers of different protocol mix like .Net / Database / SOA / Web and Multimedia.

  2. Not getting the sentence “Note that THINK time is ignored in VUGen while played back as recorded in Controller.” Please explain more on it.

  4. He was referring to Runtime settings – even if you select “As Recorded” under Think Time in runtime settings, it will ignore (think time =- 0)

    By the way, the author is wrong. If you use above settings, it will work as selected. I tried it in LR 8.0, 9.0, 9.1, 9.5

  5. I am old in VUgen and Loadrunner, with the connection and BSM. Loadrunner is alos used in BAC/Topaz.
    I can correlate the prameters in the VUgen through Automatic correlation.
    my concern is:
    How to find the data that need correlation manually, if we do not want automatic or VUgen Scanning for Dynamic data.

    Can anybody help in details;

  6. Hi Users,
    I have a scenario for 1500 Users and I wanted to create a rendzvous point for some transactions and only 500 Vusers will hit the that transaction at the same time.

    Can we specify Number of Vuser for Rendzvous point on loadrunner.

  7. Yes , we can specify number of Vusers for the rendezvous point by enabling/disabling the Vusers…the path to do that would be
    load runner>applications>controller>(the script which has rendezvous point)> scenario > rendezvous > in rendezvous information just enable / disable the users
