Run results actions
You can perform several actions on your results, such as submitting a defect, marking them as a benchmark, exporting them, and downloading their logs.
You can configure LoadRunner Cloud so that you can open a defect in ALM Octane directly from a LoadRunner Cloud report.
Configure ALM Octane in LoadRunner Cloud
To configure LoadRunner Cloud to work with ALM Octane:
Navigate to Menu bar > Your user name > ALM Octane account.
In the dialog box that opens, enter the URL to the home page of your Octane account.
Create a defect from LoadRunner Cloud
To open a defect in ALM Octane directly from the dashboard or report:
Click (more options) and select Open defect in ALM Octane.
- In the dialog box that opens, enter the following details for the defect:
Email a results report
To email a report of the load test run results, click (more options) and select Email report. In the dialog box that opens, enter the recipient email address and any message content you want to include. To send to multiple recipients, separate the email addresses with semicolons.
The report is sent as a PDF attachment to the message.
Set a benchmark
You can set a load test run as a benchmark, so that in the dashboard, you can visually compare another run to it.
- To set a run as a benchmark, click (more options) and select Set as benchmark. The Benchmark indicator is added to the toolbar.
- To remove the run as the benchmark run, click the x on the Benchmark indicator.
For details on using the benchmark in the dashboard, see Compare two load test runs.
The Exports area shows a list of all exports that are in progress, and those that are complete and available for download. Completed exports will remain in the list for seven days.
- To open the Exports area, click on the toolbar. If you have new export notifications, the button indicates the number of unread items .
- To remove an entry, hover over the notification and click x.
- To delete all exported items, click Delete All at the bottom of the list.
Note: You can export a maximum of three files simultaneously.
You can export a report of the load test run results in different formats. To export a report, click (more options), select Export/Download, and then select an option such as PDF, Word, or CSV.
Export as a PDF or Word file
- Select Export/Download > Report to PDF or Report to Word to export the results to a file. The export begins.
- In the menu bar, click to show the Export area with a list of the exported items. The notification entry for the export shows whether the export is still in progress or if it has completed.
After it has completed, click the Download button in the notification entry to download the file.
Note: The file is available for download for one week.
Tip: This option is also available for a load test run in the Results page.
Select Export/Download > Results to CSV to export the results to a .csv file.
From the dialog box, do the following:
Action How to
Select a time frame
Use the time slider to specify the time frame to export.
Select metrics Select which metrics to include in the report. Calculate
Based on the time frame and metrics selected, calculate the highest level of data granularity (in seconds) available.
Note: The shorter the time frame and the fewer metrics selected, the higher is the level of data granularity available.
Set data granularity
Specify the number of seconds between each data point by entering a multiple of the calculated data granularity available.
Export/Download Start the export to a .csv file.
Download the .csv file.
- In the menu bar, click to show the exported items. The notification entry for the export shows whether the export is still in progress or if it has completed.
When the export is complete, the Download button will be enabled.
Note: The .csv file is available for download for one week.
The following table summarizes the primary data columns contained in the .csv file:
|clock_time||The real time stamp based on the ISO 8601 standard.|
The network time stamp (in milliseconds).
Tip: In Excel, to convert the time stamp to a time format, use the following formula:
|val||The average value of the metric calculated by taking the sum of the units divided by the count. For example, if the transaction response time for three transactions was 2, 3, and 4 seconds, the val will be 2 + 3 + 4 = 9 divided by the count (3) for a final result of 3.|
|metric||The name of the metric, such as min TRT, max TRT, average TRT, and passed transactions.|
|script||The name of the script used in the test.|
|unit||The unit of measurement for the metric, such as count, sec, %, or bytes.|
|total_duration||The sum of all transaction response times. This column will only have values for the average trt metric. For example, if the transaction response time for three transactions was 2, 3, and 4 seconds, the total_duration will be 9 seconds.|
Export raw data
You can export raw script and transaction data, provided that you enabled the collection before the test run. For details, see Define general test settings.
You can configure a load test to store all the script error messages generated during a test run, in raw format. You can then export this information to a .csv file.
To configure a load test to store all the script error messages, in the load test's General settings > Data and logs section, select Store script errors.
To export the error messages to a .csv file, select Export/Download > Script errors to CSV.
Note: The report includes a column for transaction ID. This column is populated only for MDRV script protocols.
You can configure a load test to store transaction data generated during a test run, in raw format. You can then export this information to a .csv file.
To configure a load test to store transaction data, in the load test's General settings > Data and logs section, select Store transactions raw data.
To export raw transaction data to a .csv file, select Export/Download > Transactions to CSV.
- Only transactions that passed are included.
- Transaction groups are not included.
- A maximum of 100 million entries can be stored.
- The data is retained for one week, after which it is automatically purged.
You can configure load tests to generate logs from the load generators used in the test, which you can then download. For details, see Generate and download logs.
To download load generator logs that were generated:
- In the Dashboard or Report, click the vertical ellipsis to access the Export / Download menu.
- Select Export / Download > Logs. The logs are saved to a .zip file.
- The maximum log file size is 512 MB for on-premises load generators and 1 GB for cloud-based load generators. Log files that exceed the maximum size are not included in the exported logs for a test run.
- The total size of all the log files included in an export cannot exceed 15 GB.
Vuser log content is your sole responsibility. Micro Focus does not process the log content in any way.
Download test run information
You can download various information about a test run. To download this information, click (more options), select Export / Download and then select the required option.
Export an NV Insights report
If you configured a load test to generate an NV Insights report, you can export the report to an .html file.
To export the report, select Export / Download > NV Insights report.
For further details on the NV Insights report, see Single user performance reports.
Download load generator IPs
To download a list of cloud-based load generators that have been assigned to a test, select Export / Download > LG IPs. The data is downloaded to a .csv file and includes the IP address, type, region, and location.
For an on-premises based load test, you can download a list of the load generators to which the scripts in the load test were assigned.
For details on how to assign scripts to run on specific on-premises load generators for a load test, see Define general test settings.
To download the assignments, select Export / Download > LG Scripts. The assignments are downloaded to an Excel file that shows the names of both the on-premises load generator, and the assigned script.
