LoadRunner – Manual Scenario

In the LoadRunner manual scenario, the scenario is designed manually. That means you manually instruct the LoadRunner that how many users to run and for how much duration and in what way the Vusers have to be started and ended. Based on the scenario the script results will be provided by LoadRunner, like response time, hits per sec, no. of Vusers running etc. To prepare the manual scenario for your load test you need to follow below steps:

1. Open “Controller”

That’s all. Likewise, you can create your performance test scenario (manually). The next step will be to execute the test.
