How to Set Firewall Monitoring Preferences

After you have installed and configured the LoadRunner agent, the Monitors over Firewall component, the MI Listener, and the Controller machine, you need to choose the server measurements that you want the Monitor-Over-Firewall machine to monitor.

You configure the server monitor properties from the Monitor-Over-Firewall machine, using the Monitor Configuration Dialog Box. You can select the type of monitors to run and the server whose resources you want to monitor, add the measurements to monitor for each server, and specify the frequency with which you want the monitored measurements to be reported.

The following steps describe how to configure monitors over a firewall:

  1. Open the Monitor Configuration Dialog Box.

    On the LoadRunner machine, select Start > All Programs > HPE Software > HPE LoadRunner > Advanced Settings > Monitor Configuration. For machines without the complete LoadRunner installation, select Start > Programs > Server Monitor > Monitor Configuration.

  2. Add monitored servers.

    1. To add servers, click the Add Server button . Type the name or IP address of the server whose resources you want to monitor in the Monitored Server field.

    2. Note: To add several servers simultaneously, separate the server names or IP ranges with commas. For example: 255.255.255.0-255.255.255.5, server1, server2.

    3. From the Available Monitors list, select the monitors appropriate for the server being monitored.

    4. Note: Data can only be viewed for the monitors that are enabled with your LoadRunner license key. To preview your license key information, on the LoadRunner machine, select Start > Programs > HPE Software > HPE LoadRunner > License > LoadRunner License Utility. . In icon-based operating systems, such as Windows 8, search for License Utility and run the LoadRunner License Utility program.

      For certain monitors, LoadRunner displays default measurements in the Measurements to be Monitored section. You can specify the frequency by which LoadRunner reports the measurement in the Measurement Properties section. For details on selecting measurements, see How to Set Up a Monitoring Environment.

  3. (Optional) Clone a monitored server's properties.

    If you want to monitor the same properties on different server machines, right-click the server you want to clone, and select Clone. In the Monitored Server box, type the name or IP address of the clone server you want to create.
