This section describes the various Performance Center monitoring components, and how to configure them to monitor a performance test.
Each monitor has different configuration requirements that are explained in the specific monitoring
All of the monitors allow you to view a summary of the collected data at the conclusion of the performance test. Using LoadRunner Analysis, you can generate a graph for any of the monitors. For details, see the LoadRunner Help Center.
The online monitors are divided into the following categories:
|Run-Time||Display the number and status of Vusers participating in the scenario, as well as the number and types of errors that the Vusers generate.|
|Transaction||Display the transaction rate and response times.|
|Web Resource||Provide information about the number of Web connections, throughput volume, HTTP responses, server retries, and downloaded pages at the web servers during performance test run.|
|System Resource||Measure the Windows, Linux, Server, and SNMP resources used during a performance test run.|
|Network||Display information about the network delays on your system.|
Measure statistics related to the firewall servers during the scenario run.
|Web Server Resource||Measure statistics related to the Microsoft IIS and Apache web servers during the performance test run.|
|Web Application Server Resource||Measure statistics related to the Microsoft ASP application servers during the performance test run.|
|Database Server Resource||Measure statistics related to the SQL server, and Oracle databases during the performance test run.|
Measure statistics related to network virtualization, such as Packet Loss and Latency.
Measure statistics related to service virtualization, per operation and service.
Use the SiteScope monitor and its counters to measure resources. For information, see the documentation provided with SiteScope.
J2EE & .NET Diagnostics Monitors
Provide information to trace, time, and troubleshoot individual transactions through J2EE Web, application, and database servers. For details, see the Diagnostics User Guide.
Measure statistics related to the Citrix MetaFrame XP server during a performance run.
Provides information on the availability and performance of software applications and the impact on user experience measured by Dynatrace.
Provides information on the availability and performance of software applications and the impact on user experience measured by the New Relic Digital Intelligence Platform.
Provides information on the availability and performance of software applications and the impact on user experience measured by AppDynamics.
Specify the machines and measurements that the Controller will monitor during performance test execution in the resources tree of the Monitors module. During performance test execution, the collected measurement data appears in the online graphs.
Configure the monitoring environment on the server machine
To use the following monitors, you must first install or configure monitoring components on the server machine. For details about configuring the monitoring components, see the specific monitoring sections.
Configure the monitors
To obtain performance data for a monitor, you need to configure the monitor (from the monitor profile), and indicate which statistics and measurements you want to monitor.
For information about selecting the servers to monitor and selecting the measurements to monitor, see Create and configure monitor profiles.
For details about each monitor's default measurements, refer to the relevant reference section for the monitor.
