Protocol bundles

The following table describes the protocol bundles that are available for LoadRunner Cloud load tests:

Protocol Bundle Supported protocols Description
GUI  LeanFT (to be deprecated in future versions)

A GUI Vuser emulates actions on the GUI level. For example, a user clicking a button. Since the GUI has to be rendered for each virtual user, these Vusers consume significantly more processing resources.

Note:

  • The Silk Web browser-driven protocol is shown in LRC as SP Browser-driven.
  • Before running a Silk Web browser-driven script on a specific browser, such as Chrome or Firefox, on an on-premises load generator, make sure that the browser is installed on the load generator machine.

For additional limitations for Silk Performer scripts, see Scripts.
