InfluxDB and Grafana

DevWeb measurements can be reported to InfluxDB, and then visualized using dashboard tools like Grafana.

Storing data on InfluxDB

LoadRunner Developer can report run data to InfluxDB. You can then use a compatible open-source analytics solution, like Grafana, to visualize the received measurements (see Visualize measurements with Grafana, below).

To enable reporting to InfluxDB, you must update the local version of the config.yml configuration file.

To report data to InfluxDB:

  1. Install the InfluxDB database.
  2. Open the local.config.yml file. If you have not yet created one, refer to the instructions here: LoadRunner Developer configuration
  3. In the measurements session of local.config.yml, update the following parameters:

    • Set useInfluxDB to true.
    • If you want the data to also be reported to the SQLite database, leave useSqliteDB set to true, otherwise change to false.
    • In the influxDBURL parameter, specify the endpoint and database instance name. For example: http://myHost:8086?db=devWebDB

Visualize measurements with Grafana

You can use the Grafana dashboard tool to visualize and analyze the results of your DevWeb tests.

 

LoadRunner Developer provides a Grafana dashboard sample that demonstrates how DevWeb measurements, stored in InfluxDB, can be visualized in the Grafana tool. You can download the sample from the AppDelivery Marketplace.

For more details on using Grafana, see Using InfluxDB in Grafana.

For more information on importing a dashboard in Grafana, see Export and Import.
