How to View/Modify Scripts in the Scenario

This section describes how to view and modify scripts used in your load test scenario.

You view/modify the details of the scripts in the Group Information dialog box (see Group Information Dialog Box) or in the Script Information dialog box (see Script Information Dialog Box).

View script details

You can view the details of a script by right-clicking the script in the Scenario Groups/Scripts pane and selecting Details.

In the Group/Script Information dialog box that opens, you can:

  • View details about the script, including:

  • Note: If you do not see some of the details listed below, click More.

  • Script path

  • Command line options

  • Rendezvous points included in the script

  • Vusers associated with the script

  • Files associated with the script

  • Open the script in VuGen by clicking the View Script button

Modify a script's runtime settings

  • To view or modify a script's runtime settings, in the Scenario Groups/Scripts pane right-click the script and select Runtime Settings.

  • To view or modify runtime settings of a script associated with a particular Vuser, in the Vusers dialog box (Scenario Groups pane > Vusers ) right-click the Vuser and select Runtime Settings.

  • Modifying the runtime settings for one Vuser in a group modifies the runtime settings for all the Vusers in that group that are using the same script.
