Define custom virtual location parameters

This section describes how to manually specify the network profile parameters.

Custom virtual location parameters

The following parameters are available for a custom virtual location:

Latency The amount of time that it takes for an IP packet to travel across the network, from the client to the server, or from server to client. The valid range is 0 to 8,000 msec.
Packet Loss The percentage of IP packets that are sent through the network, but do not reach their destination. The valid range is 0 to 100%.
Download Bandwidth The maximum throughput through the network [in KBs per second], for data traveling from the server to the client.
Upload Bandwidth The maximum throughput through the network [in KBs per second], for data traveling from the client to the server.

How to specify virtual location parameters

  1. In the LoadRunner Controller or Performance Center, create a new virtual location, and then open the virtual location in the Virtual Location Editor. For details, see Add and configure virtual locations.
  2. Click Custom.
  3. Specify all of the NV profile parameters: Latency, Packet loss, Download Bandwidth, and Upload Bandwidth. See above for details about each of the parameters.

    Note: For Download Bandwidth and Upload Bandwidth, you can select Unlimited to impose no bandwidth limitation on the network.
