Specifying a Results Location - LoadRunner

When you run a scenario, by default the run-time files are stored locally on each load generator. After the scenario, the results are collated together and processed on the Controller machine. Alternatively, you can instruct LoadRunner to save the results on a shared network drive.

LoadRunner allows you to give descriptive names to each result set. This is especially useful for cross results analysis, in which LoadRunner superimposes the results of several scenario runs in a single graph and lets you compare the results of multiple scenario runs. The descriptive graph names enable you to distinguish between the results of the multiple runs. In the example below, the results of two scenario runs are superimposed. The result sets are res12, and res15.

Specifying a Results Location

To specify where results are stored:

  1. Choose Results > Results Settings. The Set Results Directory dialog box opens.

    specify where results are stored:

  2. In the Results Name box, enter a name for the results. Avoid using the same name with different paths, since the names will appear identical on the graphs.
  3. In the Directory box, type the full path of the results directory. If you are using the default file storage setting (local machine), specify a directory in which to store all of the collated results after the scenario run. If you specified a shared network drive as the file storage method, specify the directory to which Vuser groups should write during scenario execution.
  4. Select the appropriate check box for subsequent executions: Automatically create a results directory for each scenarioexecution or Automatically overwrite existing results directory without prompting for confirmation.
  5. Click OK to save the results directory setting.

Understanding the Set Results Directory Dialog Box

The Set Results Directory dialog box lets you set the location in which the Controller saves scenario results.

Results Name: Specify a name for the results. The Controller saves the results using the name that you specify.

Directory: Specify a location in the file system where the Controller will save the results. Click Browse to find the desired location. The Controller creates a subdirectory in the results directory. All results are saved within this subdirectory.

Results Path: Displays the specified location for the results.

Automatically create a results directory for each scenario execution:

Instructs LoadRunner to create a unique results directory for each scenario execution. By default, the result names are res1, res2, res3, etc.

Automatically overwrite existing results directory without prompting for confirmation: Instructs LoadRunner to automatically overwrite previous result sets, without prompting the user.

Quality Center (only when connected to Quality Center): Enables you to save the results to a Quality Center test set.

File System (only when connected to Quality Center): Displays the default LoadRunner directory path.
