User interface elements are described below (unlabeled elements are shown in angle brackets):
|Import data from the following files||

Select an external data file to import. A dialog box opens to enable you to select files.
Delete an external data file from the list.
Open an external data file using the associated application.

Select the time zone where the external data file was recorded. Analysis compensates for the various international time zones and aligns the times in the file with local time zone settings in order to match LoadRunner Professional results. If the times in the imported file are erroneous by a constant offset, you can synchronize the time.
|<Synchronize with scenario start time>||
Time Zone also contains the option <Synchronize with scenario start time>. Choose this to align the earliest measurement found in the data file to the start time of the LoadRunner Professional scenario.
Specify the machine name the monitor runs on. This associates the machine name with the measurement. For example, a file IO rate on the machine
Opens the Advanced Settings dialog box, enabling you to define data format settings that differ from those of the regional configuration.
Select Use custom settings and define your settings:
|Truncate imported data to 150% of scenario runtime||
In certain cases, the external monitor may have collected data over a time period that was larger than the actual load test. This option deletes data that was collected while the load test was not running, limiting the data collection period to 150% of the load testing period.
