Scheduling Manual Scenarios Overview

An important factor in the creation of a manual scenario is developing a test that accurately portrays user load behavior—the type of load and the timing of the load.

After you create a scenario, you schedule the scenario to start running at a specified time. You can limit the execution duration of the scenario or of a Vuser group within the scenario.

You can also stipulate how many Vusers to start and stop running within a certain time frame. You can specify whether LoadRunner should start or stop running all Vusers in a scenario simultaneously, or only a certain number of Vusers within a specified amount of time.

Note: Rendezvous points in a Vuser script interfere with a scheduled scenario run. If your script contains rendezvous points, your scenario will not run as scheduled. For details on rendezvous points, see Rendezvous Points.
