    Description

    Standalone VuGen

    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.

    Standalone Analysis

    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.

    Standalone TruClient

    Component for recording and developing test scripts for Web-based applications. For more information, see the TruClient Help Center.

    Standalone DevWeb

    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

    OneLG is a combined load generator installer for all of the LoadRunner family products that 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. For details, see the LoadRunner Professional Help Center.

    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.

    Entity Unlocker

    Enables users to unlock tests, scripts, monitor profiles, and analysis templates for editing when locked by that user in another session. It also enables administrators to unlock entities that have been locked by other users (available in LoadRunner Enterprise 2021 R1 and later). For details, see Unlock entities and manage unlocking jobs.

    Note:

    • This application requires .NET Framework 4.5.2.

    • (LoadRunner Enterprise 2021 and earlier versions only) The Entity Unlocker is not supported when the LoadRunner Enterprise server is configured with SSO authentication.

    MI Listener

    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.
