Quick load test

The Quick start section on the LoadRunner Cloud Home page lets you create tests with or without existing scripts.

Create a test using an existing script

This section describes how to create a test using an existing script, created with an external test generation tool, such as Micro Focus VuGen (Virtual User Generator). Tests that were uploaded to the LoadRunner Cloud Assets section will be available for use. For details, see Scripts.

To use an existing script for your test:

  1. Click Create a test in the Home page's Quick start section. The Load Tests tab opens.
  2. Add scripts and set the relevant options as described in Define a load test.
  3. Click Run Test in the upper right. Watch the results in the Dashboard that opens after the test initialization.

Create a test using a HAR file

This section describes how to create a test using an HAR (HTTP Archive) file. This is the common format for recording HTTP tracing information.

Use a HAR file to create a TruAPI test to generate test results.

  1. Generate a HAR file through your browser or another external tool.

  2. In the Home tab's Quick start section, click the Create a test using a HAR file button. The Test Configuration dialog box opens.
  3. Name your test.
  4. Click Browse to add the HAR file.

    Caution: Carefully review your HAR file before you upload it, as it may contain private information, such as usernames and passwords.

  5. Set the runtime details:

    • In the WEB Vusers field, select the number of Vusers from the drop-down list.
    • In the Duration field, select a test duration from the drop-down list.
  6. Click Run Test. Watch the results in the Dashboard that opens after the test initialization.

Tip: After the test runs, you can add the script that was created from the HAR file to a new or existing test.
