This topic describes how to add on-premises load generators to your load test.
Add and edit on-premises load generators
On-premises load generators are ideal for running load tests on applications that cannot be accessed from behind your firewall.
Only load generators that were added to the project's assets will be available. For details, see Load generator management.
To create, edit, or delete a load generator, select Assets > Load Generators and do one of the following:
You can edit on-premises load generator settings to enable or disable Vuser log collection, or to adjust the number of maximum Vusers per protocol.
Click Delete to delete a load generator. The load generator is detached from any load tests in which it is included and is then deleted entirely.
Note: This option is only available if Project Management is not enabled for your tenant.
Click Remove to remove a load generator from the current project. The load generator is detached from any load tests in the current project in which it is included and is then removed from the current project. The load generator is still available in any other project in which it is configured and you can copy it back to the current project in Project Management.
Note: This option is only available if Project Management is enabled for your tenant.
Older versions of on-premises load generators
For best results, use an on-premises load generator of the same version as your current LoadRunner Cloud tenant.
Beginning with OPLG version 2021.04, unsupported on-premises load generators will be disconnected automatically.
LoadRunner Cloud supports up to two versions back. For details about supported versions, see On-premises load generators (OPLGs).
An old, but supported version, is indicated by an warning icon .
An old, and no longer supported version is indicated by an error icon .
