Non-Resources dialog box

When you record a script, VuGen indicates whether or not it will retrieve the resource during replay using the Resource attribute in the web_url function. If the Resource attribute is set to 0, the resource is retrieved during script execution. If the Resource attribute is set to 1, the Vuser skips the resource type.

You can exclude specific content types from being handled as resources. For example, you can indicate to VuGen that gif type resources should not be handled as a resource and therefore be downloaded unconditionally.
