LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish
So the new LR 11.5 IDE looks very good with more stuff , but seems to be very slow on my machines & the machines are pretty powerful at 12 core/ 64 GB RAM servers.
Are there any tweaks or things which i can do to tone down to make the IDE go faster ? takes a long time to run some scripts , switch views ...
Can you provide an example? I know when starts loading intially it loads it takes a while, but after that subsequent loads are quick.

If you find that this or any post resolves your issue, please be sure to mark it as an accepted solution.
Start a compile takes a while before it shows up that it has done something 5-10 seconds
launch Run time setting sporadically takes a long time to show up.
Start a script - 10-20 seconds before i see the view/layout changed ,logs to roll etc
I have update from 11.0 to 11.5 and now I am regretting doing so.
The Vugen is too slow to work with. Every step in it now takeing at least 10 times more than what it used to be!!
And specially while opening existing scripts from a local drive or shared path. Some occasion I just stop working on it.
what's wrong with it ? Do anybosy has any idea of improving it..pls help
By the way I am using Win XP with 4GB of RAM
A new service pack, 11.51, was just recently released. I haven't tried it myself yet, but sounds like it could help:
You are correct, there is a severe performance issue in VuGen 11.50 and 11.51 for some customers.
Please review the original thread discussing this issue: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/LoadRunner-Support-Forum/VUGen-11-5-extremely-slow-on-playback/td-p/5854215
We (the LR development team) consider this a critical bug with top priority and it should be resolved in the upcoming patch 11.52 which should be released by the end of April.
What you can currently do is:
1) The first replay may take longer because on the first replay it needs to initialize the runtime environment. Subsequent replays should start much faster.
2) Disable animated run, we identified it as a bottleneck for the replay process.
3) Use one of the dlls I provided on the other thread (if your problem is with the extended log).
I would really appreciate if you stay in touch with me once patch 11.52 is released to make sure that the slowness is resolved for you. As I previously mentioned, this issue has been raised by several customers and we would like to make sure that the new VuGen performs as expected for all of the affected customers.
Your machine should more than enough to run VuGen properly (way, way more).
I'm also having the same problem. The new Vugen is extremely slow compared to 11.04.
It's worth noting it's not just playback, it seems everything is slow, from launching the IDE to opening a scrip, from running a test to opening a dialogue.
It's ironic a Performance Test tool has severe performance issue with itself. Hope the HP QA team can do a better job.
As I mentioned in an earlier post the performance issue was identified for some of our users. The performance issue is treated as a critical bug and should be resolved in the upcoming patch. Meanwhile you can use one of the temporary solution I provide.
I know the QA team is going a good job but I am sure you can understand that we cannot cover 100% of the environment-script constellations our users have. As soon as we received the first reports of the performance issue we began a deep investigation of the factors that are causing it.
If you require further assistance or information, please feel free to contact me via the forum or a private message.
Other than overall slowness in LR 11.5, I had observed two issues which I would like to mention here
Not able to open the script by directly clicking on the .usr file in the path. It just stuck. So I have to open Vugen first and then open the script from file menu. Does not matter whether script is in shared path or local drive.
Second, sometime I see HP.Utt.StandaloneDebugger.exe still running in the background though I have stopped the run. This creates issue as it can not close the GUI (mostly I am using SAP) much after test finished. So I have to kill this manaully to make Vugen available for next run.
I have attched screenshots.
Not sure if anybody else is getting these issues?
One of the suggestion I got from SAP LR support guy (we have purchased the LR from SAP due to nature of agreement who in turn get support from HP) to disable DEP. I did that and seems it is better now though not completely resolve slowness issues.
Hope HP QA guys will fix slowness issue soon, looking forward to it.
