This topic describes how to add on-premises load generators to your load test.
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 are 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 rename it, enable or disable Vuser log collection, or adjust the number of maximum Vusers per protocol.
Click to delete the selected load generators. The deleted load generators are detached from all load tests in which they were included, and are then deleted entirely.
Note: The Delete option is only available when Tenant management is not enabled for your tenant.
Click to remove the selected load generators from the current project. The load generators are detached from all load tests in the current project in which they are included, and are then removed from the current project.
The removed load generators are still available for other projects. You can add them back to the current project from the Tenant management area.
Note: The Remove option is only available when Tenant management is enabled for your tenant.
Click to update the view of the on-premises load generator grid. This is useful for checking a load generator's current connectivity status. For example, if a load generator was temporarily unavailable, click Refresh and view the Status column to check its availability.
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 are automatically disconnected.
LoadRunner Cloud supports up to two versions back. For details about supported versions, see On-premises load generators (OPLGs).
