About Running a Scenario - LoadRunner

When you run a scenario, the Vuser groups are assigned to their load generators and execute their Vuser scripts. During scenario execution, LoadRunner:

  • records the durations of the transactions you defined in the Vuser scripts
  • performs the rendezvous included in the Vuser scripts
  • collects error, warning, and notification messages generated by the Vusers You can run an entire scenario unattended, or you can interactively select the

Vuser groups and Vusers that you want to run. When the scenario starts running, the Controller first checks the scenario configuration information. Next, it invokes the applications that you selected to run with the scenario.

Then, it distributes each Vuser script to its designated load generator. When the Vuser groups are ready, they start executing their scripts. While the scenario runs, you can monitor each Vuser, view the error, warning, and notification messages generated by the Vusers, and stop both Vuser groups and individual Vusers. You can instruct LoadRunner to allow an individual Vuser or the Vusers in a group to complete the iterations they are running before stopping, to complete the actions they are running before stopping, or to stop running immediately. For more information, see “Configuring Scenario Run-Time Settings”.

The scenario ends when all the Vusers have completed their scripts, when the duration runs out, or when you terminate it.

The following procedure outlines how to run a scenario:

  1. Open an existing scenario or create a new one.
  2. Configure and schedule the scenario.
  3. Set the results directory.
  4. Run and monitor the scenario
