Manage dockerized images

This section describes how to deploy dockerized LoadRunner Enterprise images and update the default image.

Deploy dockerized load generator images

Dockerized load generator images are available in the Docker repository.

You can pull Docker images from the https://hub.docker.com/r/performancetesting/ page in the Docker hub, using the following commands:

Environment Command
Linux

Two images are available, Linux-Ubuntu and RHEL.

  • Ubuntu host:

    docker pull performancetesting/load_generator_linux:<tag version number>

    Example: docker pull performancetesting/load_generator_linux:20.02

  • RHEL host:

    docker pull performancetesting/load_generator_redhat:<tag version number>

    Example: docker pull performancetesting/load_generator_redhat:20.02

    Note: The RHEL Dockerized load generator image is currently available as tech preview.

Windows

docker pull performancetesting/onelg:<tag version number>

Example: docker pull performancetesting/onelg:20.02

Note: The Docker image for Windows Standalone Load Generator was replaced in LoadRunner Enterprise 2020 SP2 by the OneLG image.

For full instructions on deploying and running a dockerized host, see the LoadRunner Enterprise Installation Guide.

Deploy LoadRunner Enterprise as a fully containerized environment

Note: This feature is provided as a tech preview version.

You can perform a fully containerized LoadRunner Enterprise deployment by installing the LoadRunner Enterprise Server, Controller, and load generator images on a Docker machine. In addition, you need to deploy an image for your database (this must be provided by your database administrator).

You can pull the LoadRunner Enterprise Server, Controller, and load generator images from the https://hub.docker.com/r/performancetesting/ page in the Docker hub, using the following commands:

Image Command
LoadRunner Enterprise Server

docker pull performancetesting/lreserver:<tag version number>

Example: docker pull performancetesting/lreserver:20.02

Controller (data processor)

docker pull performancetesting/host:<tag version number>

Example: docker pull performancetesting/host:20.02

Note: You cannot utilize a Controller image as a load generator because there will be a ports conflict with the load generator image, and the load generator ports for the Controller image will be closed.
