Test mobile apps in LoadRunner Cloud
Use TruClient technology together with LoadRunner Cloud to record and run single-user performance tests for mobile apps on real mobile devices.
Test your mobile app with a licensed copy of Digital Lab.
Before you create a load test for a mobile app, ensure that you have done the following:
|Install Digital Lab||
To set up your Digital Lab server, see the Digital Lab Help Center.
|Connect devices||Your mobile devices must be connected to the Digital Lab server, and must be available. For details, see Connect devices in the Digital Lab Help Center.|
Create a load test for a mobile app
The following table describes the steps to take to create a load test for a mobile app.
|Record a script||
Record a TruClient - Native Mobile script.
For details, see Record Native Mobile scripts in the VuGen Help Center.
|Define a load test||
Create a load test and select either Cloud or On Premise as the location of the load generators.
For details, see Define a load test.
|Add scripts to your test||
Select and configure your TruClient - Native Mobile script.
For details, see Configure a schedule for your script.
Note: Because only 1 user can use a mobile device at a time, the test runs only 1 Vuser on each mobile device defined in your script. This implies also, that there is no ramp up or tear down.
|Add load generators||
Select your load generators.
For detail on cloud load generators, see Configure cloud load generator locations.
For detail on on-premises load generators, see Configure on-premises load generator locations.
Note: To run scripts on load generators, the Digital Lab server must be accessible from the load generators.
|Run your test||Run the test in the usual way. For details, see Run the test.|
Go to the Dashboard and view the metrics collected from the mobile device, as you defined in your script.
LoadRunner Cloud supports the following metrics for mobile scripts:
