Creates a rendezvous point in the Vuser script.

C Language

int lr_rendezvous_ex( char *rendezvous_name );
Example: lr_rendezvous_ex Run-Time Functions


Name Comments
rendezvous_name The name of the rendezvous.

The lr_rendezvous_ex function creates a rendezvous point in a Vuser script. When this statement is executed, the Vusers stop and wait for permission to continue.

The default timeout is 30 sec. The timeout is set in the scenario policy in the Controller.

This function can only be used in an action section, and not in vuser_init or vuser_end.

The difference between this function and lr_rendezvous is that lr_rendezvous does not return a range of values.
