HP LoadRunner 12 Essentials: Working with Controller and Analysis

Performance engineers and others who are responsible for performance testing of software solutions and wish to learn how to use HP LoadRunner 12.5


Expected Duration
104 minutes

Executing a load test in the HP LoadRunner environment is done by creating and executing a load test scenario. This course covers how to use the Controller component of HP LoadRunner 12.5 to generate different types of scenarios – manual and goal-driven. You will learn how to create service-level agreements (SLA) that the load test result will be compared to and how to execute load test scenarios, identify issues during a test, and collate test results for analysis. The Analysis tool in HP LoadRunner is used to analyze test result data. This course covers how to generate an analysis session with the Analysis component of HP LoadRunner 12. You will also learn how to access graphical representations and how to create custom graphs in addition to how to access and generate different types of reports including summary, HTML, and SLA reports. This course can be used as part of preparation for the HP LoadRunner 12.x Software exam, HPO-M103, to obtain the HP ATP – LoadRunner v12 certification.


The LoadRunner Controller

  • start the course
  • describe purpose of the Controller and describe the Controller interface and scenario types
  • create a LoadRunner scenario
  • use the LoadRunner Controller to modify Vuser script details
  • use the LoadRunner Controller to configure load generators to generate a load on a system, describe how load balancing is implemented and monitor the CPU use of a load generator
  • use the Scenario Schedule options in LoadRunner Controller to emulate real load behavior
  • use the LoadRunner Controller to emulate different types of users
  • use the LoadRunner Controller to set up monitors to monitor the system under load
  • describe service-level agreements (SLAs) and define SLAs in the Controller
  • describe the LoadRunner Controller Run view and use the Controller to run and monitor a load test scenario
  • Executing Scenarios

  • use rendezvous points during a scenario run and generate a Vuser script log
  • use the Controller’s graphs to Identify application errors and performance issues during a test
  • collate load test results in preparation for analysis and use the LoadRunner Controller to modify a load scenario during a test by increasing the load
  • Practice: Scenarios

  • practice creating and executing LoadRunner scenarios
  • Analyzing Scenario Runs

  • create an Analysis session and describe the LoadRunner Analysis interface
  • view load test scenario information in LoadRunner Analysis
  • Using Graphs

  • use LoadRunner Analysis to graphically view performance and customize graph display
  • work with cross result and merged graphs in Analysis
  • generate a custom graph in Analysis
  • Creating Reports

  • access results of an analysis session in a summary report and describe its components
  • publish results of an analysis session in an HTML report and describe its components
  • create a transaction analysis report and SLA report and describe their components
  • Practice: Working with Analysis

  • practice creating an analysis session and generating a report
