Controlling Individual Vusers and Vuser Groups
You can run an entire scenario as described above, or you can manipulate
individual Vusers in the scenario. This section describes how to initialize, run,
pause, and stop Vusers.
Initializing Vusers
Initializing a Vuser distributes the Vuser to its designated host so that the Vuser is
ready to execute its script.
To initialize a Vuser:
1
Select the Vuser Groups or Vusers that you want to initialize.
2
Choose Vuser > Initialize or Group > Initialize, or click the Initialize button. The
Vuser's status changes from
DOWN
to
PENDING
to
INITIALIZING
to
READY
. If a Vuser
fails to initialize, the Vuser status changes to
ERROR
.
Running Vusers
Running a Vuser tells the Vuser to execute its script.
To run a Vuser:
1
Select the Vuser Groups or Vusers that you want to run.
2
Choose Vuser > Run or Group > Run, or click the Run button. The Vusers execute
their scripts. If you run a Vuser in the
DOWN
or
ERROR
state, LoadRunner
initializes and then runs the Vuser.
