Define the Number of Vusers

Hello EveryBody!!

I recently started using LoadRunner  as a tool to test my different web aplications, however, I havent found the way to define the number of Vusers that I need. so I have some questions that I hope someone can help me to answer them.

Are the same the number of Iterations and the number of Vsuers?

How can I define the number of Vusers  which I start my Test?

Is it possible to add Vuser every so often?

  • Hi ScrumMaster and welcome to the fascinating world of Performance engineering using LoadRunner,

    To answer your questions:

    1. Iterations are the number of times each action runs a full cycle. Number of Vuser (Virtual users) are the actual users which will execute the script each iteration.

    2. You define the number of Vusers when you set the schedule of the scenario in the Controller

    3. You can add Vusers during a test run

    All the above being said - My 1st and foremost recommendation is you take some time and study the tool before starting to actually work with it. LoadRunner comes with a built in tutorial in the documentation and an in-house application you can create simple scripts and scenarios on. Once you complete the tutorial, I'm sure it will be easier for you to work with LoadRunner.

    Good Luck,
