Runtime Settings Views

This page describes the runtime settings views.

To open the runtime settings, do one of the following:

  • In the Solution Explorer, double-click on the name of a Runtime Settings view.
  • Select the menu item Replay > Runtime Settings.
  • Press the shortcut key, F4.

Note: Internet Explorer 10 or higher must be installed in order to display the runtime settings.

For an overview of the runtime settings, see Runtime Settings Overview.

Note: Descriptions of the individual runtime settings are available within the runtime settings views, by hovering the mouse over a runtime setting field name.
For some runtime settings, there is additional information on the settings included in Runtime Settings View Descriptions.




Runtime Settings View Descriptions

View Description
.NET Environment View Enables you to set the runtime settings for .NET Vuser scripts.
Additional Attributes View Enables you to provide additional arguments for a Vuser script. The Additional Attributes settings apply to all Vuser script types. You specify command line arguments that you can retrieve at a later point during the test run, using Command Line Parsing functions. Using this view, you can pass external parameters to prepared scripts.
Browser Emulation View Enables you to configure the browser related runtime settings.
Browser View (TruClient - Web)

Enables you to configure settings for the TruClient browsers, for scripts that you run in load mode.

Additional information:

  • Settings that you modify in this view only affect TruClient Vusers in load mode.
  • These settings correspond to those in the Browser Settings tab in the TruClient General Settings Dialog Box. However, the settings that you modify in the TruClient General Settings Dialog Box only affect interactive mode. For details on this dialog box, see the TruClient Help Center (select the relevant version).
  • When you save your script in interactive mode, the settings that you modified in the Browser Settings tab are applied to these Load Runtime settings.
Citrix Configuration View Enables you to set the Citrix configuration runtime settings.
Citrix Synchronization View Enables you to set the Citrix synchronization runtime settings.
Client Emulation View Enables you to set the Oracle NCA runtime settings.
Content Check View

Enables you to check websites for content during runtime. You can set Content Check runtime settings for Web - HTTP/HTML and other Internet protocols.

Additional information:

You use the Content Check settings to check the contents of a page for a specific string. This is useful for detecting non-standard errors. In normal operations, when your application server fails, the browser displays a generic HTTP error page indicating the nature of the error. The standard error pages are recognized by VuGen and treated as errors, causing the script to fail. Some application servers, however, issue their own error pages that are not detected by VuGen as error pages. The page is sent by the server and it contains a formatted text string, stating that an error occurred.

For example, suppose that your application issues a custom page when an error occurs, containing the text ASP Error. You instruct VuGen to look for this text on all returned pages. When VuGen detects this string, it fails the replay.

Note: VuGen searches the body of the pages—not the headers.

DFE Chain Configuration View Enables Data Format Extensions during replay.
Download Filters View Enables you to set the download filters for a script.
Flex Configuration View Enables you to set an external JVM (Java Virtual Machine) path and other runtime settings.
Flex Externalizable View Enables you to configure runtime setting for externalizable objects in Flex scripts.
Flex RTMP View Enables you to set the Flex RTMP runtime settings.
Java Classpath View Enables you to specify the location of additional classes that were not included in the system's classpath environment variable. You may need these classes to run Java applications and ensure proper replay.
Java VM View Enables you to set the Java VM runtime settings.
JMS Advanced View Enables you to set the JMS advanced runtime settings.
Log View Enables you to configure the amount and types of information that are recorded in the log.
Log View (TruClient) Enables you to configure the amount and types of information that are reported to a log for TruClient scripts.
Miscellaneous View

Enables you to set miscellaneous runtime settings.

Tip:  

  • It is not recommended to enable both the Continue on Error and Generate Snapshot on Error options in a load test environment. This configuration may adversely affect the Vusers' performance.

  • If you require the Vusers to generate breakdown data for diagnostics (J2EE) during the test run, do not use automatic transactions. Instead, manually define the beginning and end of each transaction.

  • For considerations on whether to run a Vuser as a process or thread, see Running a Vuser as a Process or Thread.

Note: Automatic transactions are not relevant for HPE Application Performance Management.

Mobile Device View Enables you to select mobile device properties when recording a TruClient - Mobile Web script.
Other Settings View (TruClient) Enables you to configure snapshot generation and action on error for TruClient.
Pacing View Enables you to control the time between iterations. The pace tells the Vuser how long to wait between iterations of your actions.
Preferences View

Enables you to set various Internet-related runtime settings.

For information about the Internet Preferences runtime settings, see Preferences View - Internet Protocol.

Proxy View

Enables you to set the proxy server connection settings.

If you select the option to use the default HTTP proxy settings:

  • When running on Windows, the Internet Explorer proxy settings are used.

    To use this option, your default browser cannot be Firefox.  If it is, uninstall Firefox and then select another default browser.

  • When running on Linux, the proxy values in the HTTP_PROXY or HTTPS_PROXY environment variables are used.

    You must manually create these environment variables on the Linux computer where your script runs.

RDP Advanced View

Enables you to set the RDP advanced runtime settings.

Tip: Disable the options that are not essential for your test, in order to conserve system resources on the remote desktop server.

RDP Agent View

Enables you to set the RDP Agent runtime settings.

Tip: For the RDP agent log folder option—if no folder is specified and the agent log destination was set to File, the log is saved in the temp folder of the user on the server.

RDP Configuration View Enables you to set the RDP configuration runtime settings.
RDP Synchronization View Enables you to set the RDP synchronization runtime settings.
Replay View (TruClient) Enables you to set the runtime settings for replay of TruClient scripts.
RTE View

Enables you to set the RTE runtime settings.

Tip: In the Delay before typing option, the delay settings determine how Vusers execute TE_type functions.

  • First key. Specifies the time in milliseconds, that a Vuser waits before entering the first character of a string.
  • Subsequent keys. Specifies the time in milliseconds, that a Vuser waits between submitting successive characters.

Note: You can use the TE_typing_style function to override the Delay settings for a portion of a Vuser script.

Run Logic View Enables you to set the run logic runtime settings.
SAP GUI > General View

Enables you to set the SAP GUI runtime settings.

Performance settings:

  • Show SAP Client during replay. This option shows an animation of the actions in the SAP client during replay. The benefit of this, is that you can closely follow the actions of the Vuser and see how the forms are filled out. This option, however, requires additional resources and may affect the performance of your load test.
  • Create snapshots during replay. Captures both ActiveScreen snapshots and regular snapshots while a script runs.

    ActiveScreen snapshots contain control ID information for all active objects. ActiveScreen snapshots differ from regular snapshots in that ActiveScreen snapshots allow you to see which objects were recognized by VuGen in the SAP GUI client. As you move your mouse across an ActiveScreen snapshot, VuGen highlights the detected objects. You can then add new steps to the script directly from within the snapshot. ActiveScreen snapshots also enable you to add steps interactively from within the snapshot for a specific object. For more information, see How to Enhance SAP GUI Scripts.

    Note: Disabling replay snapshots may improve the script replay speed and save storage space.

Server (TruClient Native Mobile) Enables you to specify the server from which you want to collect data and the credentials.
Shared DLLs View Enables you to modify the list of shared DLLs after you record a Vuser script. If a DLL is included in the list of shared DLLs, when the Vuser script is run and requires a particular DLL, the Vuser will access the DLL in its shared location – the DLL will not be copied to the load generator. Adding a DLL to the list of shared DLLs therefore saves hard-drive space on the load generator when a Vuser is run.
Silverlight Services View Enables you to view the WSDL files associated with your script and modify their settings for the replay phase.
Speed Simulation View Enables you to configure bandwidth runtime settings.
Speed Simulation View (TruClient) Enables you to configure bandwidth for the TruClient Web and Mobile Web protocols.
Think Time View Enables you to configure the think time settings, controlling the time that a VuGen waits between actions. These settings are designed to help you emulate a real user.
WAP Bearers View

Enables you to set the WAP Bearers runtime settings.

Note: These runtime settings are only relevant for legacy scripts using the WAP protocol.

WAP Gateway View

Enables you to set the WAP Gateway runtime settings.

Note: These runtime settings are only relevant for legacy scripts using the WAP protocol.

WAP Radius View

Enables you to set the WAP Radius runtime settings.

Note: These runtime settings are only relevant for legacy scripts using the WAP protocol.
