How does the "Unique" parameter setting work for StormRunner scripts?

Hello Team,

We have a case about SRL and below is the customer scenerio:

"In the classic LoadRunner Controller if I set a parameter to "Sequential Unique" with 100 parameter list items, set the individual script to run 10 iterations, then set up 10 user groups with the script the 100 parameters will be auto-distributed and executed across the 10 running groups (i.e. each group runs its' own 10 parameter items).

Will StormRunner execute this same functionality and auto-distribute the available parameters between the # of scripts leveraging the same parameter file?"

Kindly suggest and thanks in advance.

Re: How does the "Unique" parameter setting work for StormRunner scripts?

Hi,

As I supposed, they are talking about parameter file that can be stored outside vuser script and LR/PC Controller can access it during load test and distribute values between all running vusers on all LGs (mainly using unique distribution method).

Seemingly SRL is still missing this functionality L
In the past for customers that asked for unique parameter distribution in SRL we suggested to use VTS.

Thanks,

Israel

The 'Unique' (Select next row) parameter is supported in SRL. Parameters will be distributed in all Vusers (even cross multiple load generators in different regions) running the script.

Assume that there is a script which uses 'Unique' parameter. It has 10K values.

If you configure 200 Vusers on the script, each Vuser will use 50 values. For example: Vuser 1 use range 1- 50, Vuser 2 uses range 51 - 100, etc.
