Planning the Test

Understanding LoadRunner The LoadRunner Testing Process
LoadRunner Controller User's Guide (Windows)
Chapter 2, page 39
Step I: Planning the Test
Successful load testing requires that you develop a thorough test plan. A clearly
defined test plan will ensure that the LoadRunner scenarios that you develop will
accomplish your load testing objectives. For more information, see Chapter 3,
Load Test Planning
.
Step II: Creating the Vuser scripts
Vusers emulate human users interacting with your client/server system. A Vuser
script contains the actions that each virtual user performs during scenario
execution.
In each Vuser script you determine the tasks that will be:
performed by each Vuser
performed simultaneously by multiple Vusers
measured as transactions
For more information on creating Vuser scripts, refer to the
Creating Vuser Scripts
guide.
