Specify virtual location runtime settings

After you specify the parameters for a virtual location, configure the runtime settings for the virtual location.

Virtual location runtime settings

  • Bandwidth Allocation. Allows you to specify if the specified network bandwidth is shared by all Vusers on the Load Generator, or is available to each individual Vuser.

  • Packet Capture. Allows you to specify if packets are captured on the Load Generator. You can enable this option only if packet capture has been enabled globally for the scenario or test.

    For details on enabling packet capture for the scenario or test, see Packet Capture.

    For details on enabling packet capture for a Load Generator, see Set packet capture for a virtual location.

  • IP Filters. Enables you to specify the list of IP addresses to which network impairments will not be applied when a LoadRunner scenario or Performance Center test runs.

    For details on specifying the global IP filter list that applies to the scenario or the test, see IP filter.

    For details on specifying the local IP filter list that applies to an individual load generator in a scenario or test, see Create a local IP filter for a virtual location.
