LoadRunner Professional integrates with Network Virtualization. This enables you to test point-to-point performance of WAN or other network deployed products under real-world network conditions. By installing software on your load generators, you introduce highly probable effects such as latency, packet loss, and link faults over your network. As a result of this, your scenario performs the test in an environment that better represents the actual deployment of your application.
You can create more meaningful results by configuring multiple load generator machines or groups on a single load generator with the same unique set of network effects, and by giving each set a unique location name, such as NY- London. When viewing scenario results in Analysis, you can group the metrics according to their location names.
