Download standalone applications
This topic describes the various standalone applications you can download for use with LoadRunner Enterprise.
To download standalone applications:
Contact your administrator to enable the required download. Your administrator needs to copy the required utility's files from:
Downloads Source Destination For standalone applications Available from the MF_LRE_2020_SP<#>_MLU.zip in the Standalone Applications folder, or as an individual installer.
<LRE installation folder>\PCWEB\Downloads
For additional components
Available from the MF_LRE_2020_SP<#>_MLU.zip in the Additional Components folder, or from the MF_LRE_2020_SP<#>_Additional_Components.zip.
From the LoadRunner Enterprise navigation toolbar, click and select Download Applications (under More Tools).
Select the applications you want to download:
Enables you to create Vuser scripts for performance tests. Using VuGen, you record business processes into test scripts and customize the scripts according to defined user behavior. For details working with VuGen, see the Virtual User Generator Help Center.
Enables you to analyze performance test data offline from any computer on which Analysis is installed. You use Analysis graphs and reports to organize and display performance test results and summarize system performance. For details working with Analysis, see the LoadRunner Professional Help Center.
Component for recording and developing test scripts for Web-based applications. For more information, see the TruClient Help Center.
Enables you to create scripts using DevWeb, Micro Focus's latest cutting-edge tool for web protocol performance and load testing. For more information, see the DevWeb Help Center.
*One Load Generator / Standalone Load Generator
Enables you to generate load by running virtual users (Vusers). The Controller dictates the manner in which they start and stop running. There can be any number of load generators for a given test.
*One Load Generator (OneLG) is a combined Windows load generator installation for all of the LoadRunner family products that was introduced in LoadRunner Enterprise SP3.
Standalone Monitor Over Firewall
To enable monitoring of your servers from outside the firewall, you must install the Monitor Over Firewall component on designated machines inside the firewall. You first configure the Monitor Over Firewall agent to operate over a firewall. You then select the servers you want to monitor, and define the specific measurements that LoadRunner Enterprise collects for each monitored server.
Enables you to unlock tests, scripts, timeslots, monitor profiles, and analysis templates for editing when they are locked by you in another session. This enables performance engineers to continue working without having to contact the LoadRunner Enterprise administrator.
The logs are created in the \orchidtmp\LTLogger\EntityUnlocker folder.
When running on a machine with LoadRunner Enterprise server, a load generator, or Analysis, the log is created in the <LRE Server, Host, or Analysis installation directory>\orchidtmp\LTLogger\EntityUnlocker\ folder. For example:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\LoadRunner Enterprise\orchidtmp\LTLogger\EntityUnlocker
On a machine that does not have any of these products installed, the log is created in the <Entity Unlocker installation directory>\orchidtmp\LTLogger\EntityUnlocker folder. For example
This application requires .NET Framework 4.5.2.
The Entity Unlocker is not supported when the LoadRunner Enterprise server is configured with SSO authentication.
Component for the MI Listener machine used in running Vusers and monitoring over the firewall. For more information, refer to "Working with Firewalls" in the LoadRunner Enterprise Installation Guide.
Script Development Tools
Includes the following tools:
Agent for Citrix Server. Installs an optional component on the server machine which enhances VuGen's capabilities in identifying Citrix client objects.
Agent for Microsoft Terminal Server. Used for extended RDP protocol record-replay. This component runs on the server side, and is used to create and run enhanced RDP scripts.
Virtual Table Server (VTS)
Installs a tool that shares data and parameters between LoadRunner Vusers. VTS uses a centralized repository to store data, enabling it to be shared between Vusers during performance tests. For details, see the Virtual User Generator Help Center.
Add-ins for Visual Studio IDE
Installs a component that enables you to create and run scripts written in your standard development environment, in the application's native language. Download the add-in that matches your version of Visual Studio, and run the add-in's executable file.
Add-ins for Eclipse IDE
Installs a component that enables you to create a Java Vuser script in Eclipse. For details, see the Virtual User Generator Help Center.
VuGen Script Converter
Installs the VuGen Script Converter that enables converting NUnit/JUnit tests to VuGen scripts in order to run them in LoadRunner Enterprise. For details, see Scripts.
