Working with LoadRunner
Suppose you want to test a bank server that serves many automatic teller
machines (ATMs). The ATMs provide a full range of banking services to the bank's
customers--such as withdrawing and depositing cash. To test the bank server
using LoadRunner, you create a scenario. The scenario defines the actions that are
performed on the server during the load test.
During the scenario that loads and monitors the bank server, you want to:
emulate conditions of controlled load on the server
emulate conditions of maximum load on the server
measure server performance under load
check where performance delays occur: network or client delays, CPU
performance, I/O delays, database locking, or other issues at the server
