Virtual Table Server in LoadRunner

Stackoverflow LoadRunner - Fri, 06/24/2016 - 05:41

I am working on performance testing of an asynchronous application and is required to store the execution data. I came to know about the availability of Virtual Table Server component in LoadRunner. Could you please provide the below clarifications.

  1. What is the underlying storage structure of the VTS table (ie.. like proprietary files / DB etc)
  2. If the VTS uses DB can we modify the DB it can use in background.
  3. What is the performance of the DB if we keep on inserting the data into table. We have a plan of using the VTS where the script creates 6600 records per day. Please note that the script runs Monday through Saturday for monitoring performance of application.
  4. Is it possible to perform archive and purge? if so how to schedule such activity on VTS.
  5. What are the performance and capacity issue that need to be considered while implementing script using VTS.

Getting Error Loading javai.dll in VuGen of HP Load Runner

Stackoverflow LoadRunner - Fri, 06/24/2016 - 02:27

When I'm trying to compile a simple script in HP load runner's VuGen. It is failing to start the JVM with following error: Java VM Internal Error: Getting Error Loading javai.dll

I'm using

  • HP LoadRunner version 12.5
  • Java version: 1.8.0
  • JAVA_HOME and PATH variables are properly set - jvm found

I'm able to compile and run the normal java programs on the same machine.

What is this javai.dll? and Why is the JVM trying to load it when it is being triggered from HP Load Runner? There are not more options to configure in Load Runner to manage this.

How to handle the redirection the url in loadrunner fails on 302 redirect

Stackoverflow LoadRunner - Fri, 06/24/2016 - 00:57

Basically the script sends one request for images which works fine. The second request submits form data to the server, however I now get 302 redirect. From here the rest of the script fails.When I re-recorded the script, recording works fine. I compared the message sent when recorded, to the message sent by LR on play back and they look the same. Same headers, same message.Thanks in advance..Its very urgent.i have tried "IGNORE REDIRECTIONS=YES" i got a error Invalid value for the "IgnoreRedirections" argument What have I missed?? What should I try???

Use Load runner web_reg_save_param_regexp save the number after tvNode_R- from a block of html code

Stackoverflow LoadRunner - Tue, 06/21/2016 - 17:50

I use the regular expression attached but it works without adding the highlighted "ORG_40365", once I added "ORG_40365" it does not work. However, I need to specify the occurrence related to specific node and need to add "ORG_40365" at the end. Otherwise will return other value unexpected. Please click here to see the web_reg_save_param_regexp used

I cannot copy the code here as it does not allow me to save with error.

I have the above string and want to save 9704 after tvNode_R-. However, the regular expression does not work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cross Vuser Transactions in Loadrunner

Stackoverflow LoadRunner - Tue, 06/21/2016 - 00:56

I am currently developing loadrunner scripts for performance testing of an application which processes in asynchronous mode. The application, which I am doing performance testing accepts input files through SFTP and send processed output on an output location through SFTP.

In order to build script to measure performance of the application, I am planning to use two Vugen Scripts, one for submitting the input file and the second one for receiving the output file. To measure the time duration between input and output, I wanted to user Cross Vugen Transaction.

I have gone through the documentation in user guide but that is too little for me to understand and implement. Could you please provide me with a sample script or more detailed steps on how to implement, execute and view Cross Vugen Transactions.

Please note that I am beginner in vugen scripts and any help in this regard would be much appreciated.

How can i substitute variables inside an array in the WebSocketBuffer.h file of loadrunner

Stackoverflow LoadRunner - Sat, 06/18/2016 - 01:56

I have captured a loadrunner script using Web-Http protocol. The website uses websocket internally. So I have the WebsocketCB and WebSocketBuffer files created. There is a WebSocketSend array where one of the values within the array needs to be modified before sending.

char WebSocketSend0[] = "Data: dynamicvalue";

I am able to save the dynamic values from another packet to a variable. But i am not able to substitute it in the above array. I used the following convention for a "test" variable

char WebSocketSend0[] = "Data: lr_eval_string("{test}")";

But it threw up lots of compilation errors. Is there anyway i can make the substitution , otherwise i have to write lots of code to modify the array.

Correlating multiple dynamic values

Stackoverflow LoadRunner - Thu, 06/16/2016 - 10:56

How can I get the value of important id and ValueType?

I have tried using web_save_param_regexp (but unfortunately I don't fully understand how the function works).

I have also tried using web_save_param (with the help of offset and length). unfortunately once again I cannot get the accurate value some values change in length specially when the total amount values dynamically changes per run.

HP Virtual User Generator 11 - How to log a different user for each test script action

Stackoverflow LoadRunner - Wed, 06/15/2016 - 10:53

Hopefully this is a simple one :) I am new to VuGen and trying to figure out the following...

I understand that to log in as a specic user you use the following command.


For each action within my script I would like to use a different user. For some reason, although I am not getting any errors, when the second action runs the user does not change. What am I missing here ?

Note: at the end of each action I am using the following code:

web_browser("Close", "Snapshot=t001.inf", DESCRIPTION, ACTION, "UserAction=Close", LAST);

SItescope monitor error in LoadRunner Controller

Stackoverflow LoadRunner - Tue, 06/07/2016 - 05:02

In Load Controller, I'v configured Sitescope to supply metrics from some servers during load testing. All worked fine until when I change the requested metrics. I now get this error : "Monitor name :SiteScope. Parsing error. Details: host localhost, port 8888, line: 11. Reason: End tag 'HEAD' does not match the start tag 'META'." No matter what I try, and I'v tried completely removing Sitescope from the affected scenario and reinstating it, rebooting the Sitescope server and then reinstating it in the scenario, changing the SSM file (I created to hold required metric names), even creating a scenario from scratch and adding selected metrics, I cant seem to get Sitescope to work at all now. Both Controller and Sitescope sit on a VM hosting Windows Server 2012 R2, 4 cores with 8gb memory. SSH is in place on all target servers and as I said, it all worked swimmingly well until you change the selected metric in Monitor Pane in controller.
