Creating and Running Scripts in Linux - Overview

You can use VuGen on a Linux environment in the following ways:

  • You can use VuGen to create Vuser scripts that run on Linux platforms. You record your application in a Windows environment and run it in Linux—recording is not supported on Linux.

Note: VuGen provides a tool to check the compatibility of your script to run on Linux-based load generators. For details, see Check Linux Compatibility.

  • Users working in Linux-only environments can program Vuser scripts. Scripts can be programmed in C or C++ and they must be compiled into a dynamic library.

To create a script through programming, you can use a Vuser template as a basis for a larger Vuser scripts. The template provides:

  • Correct program structure

  • Vuser API calls

  • Source code and makefiles for creating a dynamic library
