Wait … hours before terminating the load generator after a test run or collation that did not succeed

Lets you specify how long to wait after the post-run collation failed, before terminating the cloud-based load generator. This delay gives you time to access information on the load generator and determine why the collation failed. When a load generator is removed from the cloud, all data saved as part of the load generator is deleted.

You can enter a value from 0 through 168, and specify two digits to the right of the decimal point. For example, a value of 10.50 waits ten and a half hours.

Note: This setting is only visible if your cloud provider supports this feature.

Provider Site A direct hyperlink to the cloud provider's website.
Choose network profile

The network profile defines the connection between the Controller and the cloud provider.

Note: A network profile is used to define the connection properties for the Controller with cloud providers and the connection with Load Generators.

You can select the default connection ("LoadRunner Default), where the settings are taken from the Internet Explorer proxy settings. Otherwise, fill in the proxy settings section of the Network Profile Manager to define the connection with the cloud provider.

For details of how to create a network profile, see Network Profile Manager Dialog Box
