Some doubts about Loadrunner Controller

Jump to solution

Hi, 

I'm using loadrunner controller, but I have some doubts and I'd like to get the answer.

The recomendation is to use two machines, one for controller and one for the agents to run the application. 

My question is ,  are we going to get different results ( big differences)  ?

Please, could you tell me if it is necessary to install the full loadrunner package or the Vugen SA is enough in order to run a remote machine as a LoadGenerator ?
In addition, please, could you tell me how to configure both machines ?
The one witht he controller use a proxy, and the ones with the agent use a firewall ( in this one I have the BPM and Vugen SA installed)

 

Many thanks and regards

You have asked several questions:

  1. Is it necessary to use separate machines for Controller and Load Generator (or, as you called it, agent)? It's not necessary, but if you want to use the load generator machine's capacity to the max, it's preferable to use separate machines, in order not to run into resources problems (memory, CPU etc.) Whether the results in the two cases will be different or not, depends on the degree, to which you're planning to load the LG machine.
  2. Is it necessary to install full LoadRunner on an agent machine? No, it's not. It's enough to install "Load Generator SA" (and not VuGen SA, as you wrote), which is much lighter.
  3. If you want to learn more about how various load test components should be configured, please take a look at this blog post: http://community.hpe.com/t5/LoadRunner-and-Performance/New-Ways-to-Secure-Your-LoadRunner-Environment-in-12-00/ba-p/6417836#.VrBi3-azzX5
