UI Element
Data tables global directory
The network location for data tables used as a source for parameter values.

Note: This setting is only required for scripts created with earlier versions of LoadRunner.

Override RDP file Instructs LoadRunner Professional to override the settings in the RDP file and use the terminal server settings. This applies to RDP Vusers running on load generators for which the Terminal Services Manager is enabled. This option requires you to have Remote Desktop access to the load generator.
Multiple IP address mode
Allocates IP addresses when the multiple IP address option is enabled (Scenario > Enable IP Spoofer). Controller can allocate an IP address per process or per thread. Allocation per thread results in a more varied range of IP addresses in a scenario. For details, see Multiple IP addresses.

Note: If the IP Spoofer is not enabled, this option is not available.

IP spoofing mode

Allows you to choose an IP spoofing mode for selecting IP addresses from the IP pool. You add IP addresses to the IP pool with the IP Wizard. This option is only available if the IP Spoofer is enabled.

  • Use IP addresses sequentially. Instructs Vusers to choose an IP address from the IP pool, in sequential order.

  • Use IP addresses randomly. Instructs Vusers to choose an IP address from the IP pool, randomly.

Note: The random option may result in using the same IP address multiple times during your scenario.
