Configuring the Network Monitor
To measure performance, the Network monitor sends packets of data across the
network. When a packet returns, the monitor calculates the time it takes for the
packet to go to the requested node and return. This time is the delay which appears
on the Network Delay graphs.
Before LoadRunner loads the network, it performs a calibration phase to determine
the network delay at non-load condition. The monitor performs several iterations
during which it sends packets across the network. It uses this information to map
the segments between the source and target node.
You can configure the monitoring scheme variables to influence the network
behavior from the Network Monitor Configuration dialog box. To open the dialog
box, click Configure from the main Network Monitor dialog box.
