Many times when performance tests are designed, the think-time between actions of the actual users is simulated with an approximation of the actual time it takes for a user to do their task. Unfortunately LoadRunner only offers a linear random distribution to an average wait time via the Runtime settings.Read More »
I upgraded my Win7 machine a little, and in the process also installed IE10, and to my great (or not so great I suppose) surprise I discovered that LoadRunner v11.51 with all current patches installed does not work when recording anymore.Read More »
Sometimes when you have a function that you use alot, it might be nice to have it color coded in code like the other lr_* commands.
I looked for a solution to this for awhile but didn’t find anything relating to VuGen and Syntax Highlight things, so I started digging a little deeper into VuGen’s configs and came up with a half-way solution to this.
Today I did this exercise with the Official HP LoadRunner v11 package.
And as was to be expected it wasn’t a simple click-click-go thing 🙂
I recently got Windows 7 x64 installed on my laptop, and as per information from HP LoadRunner v9.52 does NOT work with Windows 7, let alone x64 – So I got myself a Virtual Machine installed, where I have Win XP x86 for LoadRunner work.
Beeing a person who believes software should work in diverse environments, I also tried installing LoadRunner on the Win 7 machine, specifically Analysis and VuGen Read More »
Most people do not know that LR supports overriding existing functions with custom ones in a very easy way.
I had a situation where I had a pre-made script that had fixed think-time values for the lr_think_time() calls, and they of course were completely wrong. So my problem was that I had a lot of lr_think_time() places and I didn’t want to go through them all myself.Read More »
The DLL I’ll create here is a simple stub with a few basic functions and can serve as a template for any type of DLL that you want to create.
I’ll show how to avoid the most common problems of sending/retrieving strings to/from the DLL as well as how to handle the Unicode situation with D2009 and D2010 (LR is not Unicode enabled).Read More »
