VUser setup on LoadGenerators for a Salesforce based application in SSO-enabled environment

Hello HPE Community Experts,

I’ve to perform the baseline testing (not load/stress) for a Salesforce based application in SSO-enabled environment having user located on multiple geography. I had setup around 15 LoadGenerators each on different locations and created around 15 users (userid, password) as embedded with the VuGen script using parameters (.dat file).

As I’ve to run the script at PC_SaaS on SSO-enabled application environment, Please let me know the Virtual user setup related information. Do I’ve to add all users in all the respective LoadGenerator VMs explicitly. Also how to setup virtual users so that it get loaded to location specific LoadGenerator VMs on PC_SaaS.

Any additional information on setting up this scenario are welcome.

Thanks in advance

Shiv

Re: VUser setup on LoadGenerators for a Salesforce based application in SSO-enabled environment

Hi,

Do you intend to run a single Vuser on each Load Generator? Do you need each Vuser to login with unique credentials?

You can read here about Load Generator distribution in the test designer: http://alm-help.saas.hpe.com/en/12.50/online_help/Content/PC/menu_load_generator_distribution_main.htm

Re: VUser setup on LoadGenerators for a Salesforce based application in SSO-enabled environment

Hi Shlomi,

Thanks for the help.

Yes, I intend to run a single Vuser on each Load Generator. Also I need each Vuser to login with unique credentials.

I went with the link as you've shared, and found there is a concept of 'Terminal Session' which can be the solution for my case.

Please suggest if my understanding is not correct on this. Or if any alternative easy approach also available.

Note: In my case, I've to use around 15 users on 15 LGs (on PC SaaS environment)

Thanks,

Shiv

Re: VUser setup on LoadGenerators for a Salesforce based application in SSO-enabled environment

Hi Shiv,

Terminal Session is an overkill in your case. Terminal session is good only when you use a powerful machine as Load Generator to run multiple UI based Vusers (e.g. Citrix, TruClient, SAP GUI). UI based Vusers often consume high GDI resources. Windows session has a limit of GDI resources. If your Load Generator is powerful enough, CPU and memory are less likely to be a bottleneck and to overcome the GDI resource limitation you can open several terminal sessions on the same Load Generator. Read this log post to learn more: /t5/LoadRunner-and-Performance/Enhancing-the-number-of-TruClient-Vusers-using-Terminal-Services/ba-p/6897517

For your case, you need to design a test with one group, assign all Load Generators to the same group and use unique parameter to ensure each Vuser gets its' own login data.

Shlomi

Hi Shlomi,

Thanks for sharing the link and providing the alternate way to setup the env.

One more question on the same note, do I need to add these Vusers into all the LoadGenerator VMs as well?

Regards,

Shiv

Hi,

Performance Center allows distributing the Vusers evenly among the Load Generators.

Assuming you have one group of 15 Vusers with 15 Load Generators, distributing the Vusers evenly among the LGs is the option you need.
