Graph Configuration Dialog Box

This dialog box enables you to customize the online graph settings.

To access
Use one of the following:
  • Select Monitors > Online Graphs > Configure.

  • Right-click a graph and select Configure.

Important information
You can apply these settings to all graphs, or to a specific graph only.
Relevant tasks

User interface elements are described below:

UI Element
Description
Apply to all graphs
Applies the dialog box settings to all graphs.
Apply to selected graph
Applies the dialog box settings to the selected graph.
Bar Values Type
If the Bar display type is selected, determines the type of value that will be displayed in the bar graph: Average, Last Value, Minimum, Maximum.
Display Type
The type of graph displayed: line graph or bar graph.
By default, each graph is displayed as a line graph.

Note: For the Network Delay graph, if you right-click the graph and select View Segments, you can view the network segments of the graph as an area graph or a pie graph.

Graph Time
Indicates the scale for a graph's x-axis when it is time-based. A graph can show 60 to 3600 seconds of activity. To see the graph in greater detail, decrease the graph time. To view the performance over a longer period of time, increase the graph time. The available graph times are: Whole Scenario, 60, 180, 600, and 3600 seconds.
Network Delay View
Available for the Network Delay Time graph only:
  • SubPaths. Displays the delay measurements from the source machine to each of the nodes along the network path.

  • DNS name. Displays the DNS names of the measurements displayed in the legend.

Refresh Rate
The interval at which the graph is refreshed with new data. By default, the graph is refreshed every five seconds. If you increase the refresh rate, the data is refreshed less frequently.

Note: In a large load test, it is recommended to use a refresh rate of three to five seconds. This enables you to avoid problems with CPU resource usage.

Time
Specifies how the graph displays the time (in seconds) on the x-axis:
  • Don't Show. Instructs LoadRunner not to display values for the x-axis.

  • Clock Time. Displays the absolute time, based on the system clock.

  • Relative to Scenario Start. Displays the time relative to the beginning of the scenario.

Note: If no step is running, clock time is displayed.

Example: In the left image below the time is not displayed on the x-axis. In the right image, the time is displayed.

Y-Axis Scale
Displays graphs using the selected y-axis scale:
  • Automatic. Displays the default y-axis values.

  • Maximum Y-Axis Value. The maximum value for the y-axis.

  • Minimum Y-Axis Value. The minimum value for the y-axis.
