About Running a Scenario
When you run a scenario, the Vusers are assigned to their hosts and execute their
Vuser scripts. During scenario execution, LoadRunner:
records the durations of the transactions you defined in the Vuser scripts
performs the rendezvous in the rendezvous list
collects error and notification messages generated by the Vusers
You can run an entire scenario unattended, or you can interactively select the
Vuser Groups and Vusers that you want to run. When the scenario starts running,
the Controller first checks the scenario configuration information. Next, it invokes
the applications that you selected to run with the scenario. Then, it distributes
each Vuser script to its designated host. When the Vusers are ready, they start
executing their Vuser scripts. While the scenario runs, you can pause and stop
individual Vuser Groups and Vusers.
The scenario ends when all the Vusers have completed their Vuser scripts, when
the duration runs out, or when you terminate it.
