User interface elements are described below:

UI Element

Enables you to add Vuser or JMeter scripts to the list of scripts.

Opens VuGen where you can record a Vuser script. For more information on recording Vuser scripts, see Record a Vuser Script.
Group Name

The name of the Vuser group.

When you select a script the Vuser group is automatically given the same name as the script. You can modify the group name.

Note: The name is limited to a maximum of 55 characters.

Vuser Quantity
The number of Vusers to add to the group. The default value is 1.
Load Generator Name
The load generator assigned to the Vuser group.
To add a load generator to this list, select Add from the list. For user interface details, see Add New Load Generator/Load Generator Information Dialog Box.
Use existing LoadRunner Script
Lists the available scripts that have been added to the scenario. When you select a script, its name and path are displayed above the list.
To display the scripts with their full paths, right-click the list area and select Show Paths.
Note: If a script uses Unique file parameterization, running more than one Vuser group with that script in the same scenario may cause unexpected scenario results. For more information about Unique file parameterization, see Data Assignment Methods for File-Type Parameters.
Use a Noise Generator script with the following URL
The URL to which you want to apply noise testing. You can provide a server name, IP address, or a full URL. After a URL is used once, it appears in a dropdown list.

LoadRunner automatically generates a script name using the following format: Noise_<domain>_<index>, e.g. Noise_HP_1.

Note: There is no built-in validation, so you must verify that the URL you provide is operational.
