The following sections provide tips for configuring the Runtime Settings for specific protocols.
Descriptions of the individual runtime settings are available within the runtime settings views, by hovering the mouse over a runtime setting field name.
In the General > Miscellaneous node, follow these guidelines:
It is not recommended to enable both the Continue on error and Generate snapshot on error options in a performance test environment. This configuration may adversely affect the Vusers' performance.
Automatic transactions are not relevant for Business Service Management.
RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) runtime settings
- In the Advanced node, disable the options that are not essential for your test, in order to conserve system resources on the remote desktop server.
- In the RDP Agent node, for the RDP agent log folder option—if no folder is specified and the agent log destination was set to File, the log is saved in the temp folder of the user on the server.
RTE (Remote Terminal Emulation) runtime settings
In the RTE node, in the Delay before typing option, the delay settings determine how Vusers execute TE_type functions.
First key. Specifies the time (in milliseconds) that a Vuser waits before entering the first character of a string.
Subsequent keys. Specifies the time (in milliseconds) that a Vuser waits between submitting successive characters.
Note: You can use the TE_typing_style function to override the Delay settings for a portion of a Vuser script.
SAP GUI runtime settings
In the SAPGUI General node, the Show SAP Client during replay option shows an animation of the actions in the SAP client during replay. The benefit of this, is that you can closely follow the actions of the Vuser and see how the forms are filled out. This option, however, requires additional resources and may affect the performance of your performance test.
Take ActiveScreen snapshots during replay. This feature captures replay snapshots with Control ID information for all active objects. ActiveScreen snapshots differ from regular ones, in that they allow you to see which objects were recognized by VuGen in the SAP GUI client. As you move your mouse across the snapshot, VuGen highlights the detected objects. You can then add new steps to the script directly from within the snapshot. It also allows you to add steps interactively from within the snapshot for a specific object. For more details, see the Virtual User Generator Help Center.
TruClient Web runtime settings
Settings that you modify In the Load > Browser node, only affect TruClient Vusers in load mode.
These settings correspond to those in the Browser Settings tab in the TruClient General Settings Dialog Box. However, the settings that you modify in the TruClient General Settings Dialog Box only affect interactive mode.
When you save your script in interactive mode, the settings that you modified in the Browser Settings tab are applied to these Load Runtime settings.
In the General > DevWeb Settings node, you can set runtime settings for each Vuser group that has a DevWeb script assigned to it.
For details on working with DevWeb scripts, see the LoadRunner Developer and DevWeb Help Center.
