Setting Rendezvous Attributes
Rendezvous attributes determine the behavior of the Vusers at a rendezvous. You
set the following attributes for each rendezvous:
timeout
sets how long the Controller waits before releasing Vusers
from a rendezvous.
policy
sets how many Vusers will be released from a rendezvous
at a time.
Setting the Timeout Attribute
The
timeout
determines the maximum time (in seconds) that LoadRunner waits for
each Vuser to arrive at a rendezvous. After each Vuser arrives at the rendezvous,
LoadRunner waits up to
timeout
seconds for the next Vuser to arrive. If the next
Vuser does not arrive within the
timeout
period, then the Controller releases all the
Vusers from the Rendezvous. Each time a new Vuser arrives, the
timer is reset to
zero
. The default
timeout
is thirty seconds. You set a
timeout
for each rendezvous
point.
To set a timeout:
1
Open the Rendezvous window. The Rendezvous menu appears in the
LoadRunner menu bar.
2
Click a rendezvous in the Rendezvous window.
3
Choose Rendezvous > Details. The Rendezvous Information dialog box opens.
4
In the Timeout box, enter a timeout value, and then click OK. The timeout is set for
the rendezvous.
