Enable network virtualization

You can enable or disable network virtualization for a LoadRunner scenario or a Performance Center test. When NV is enabled, the network conditions that are specified in the virtual locations are applied to the specified running Vusers. When NV is not enabled, network conditions are not emulated. When you create a new LoadRunner scenario or a Performance Center test, NV is enabled by default.

After you enable network virtualization, you must specify the mode that will be used to implement the network virtualization. For details, see Set the network virtualization mode.

To enable network virtualization for a LoadRunner scenario or a Performance Center test:

LoadRunner
  1. On the LoadRunner Controller toolbar, click the Network Virtualization Settings button to open the Network Virtualization Settings dialog box.
  2. Select Enable Network Virtualization.
Performance Center
  1. On the Performance Center > Workload tab toolbar, click the Network Virtualization Settings button to open the Network Virtualization Settings dialog box.
  2. Select Enable Network Virtualization.
