Hosts Optimization SuggestionsOpen in a New Window


We are facing issues like, controller not available, license limit reached frequently.

So we need to find out whether we are utilizing all the Licenses and Controllers effectively. Do we need to upgrade the hosts and license.

We need to determine the gaps in the evniroment, like do we need to increase the number of controllers and Licenses?

Also please suggest how the controllers are booked (only minor percentage of specific controller name has been given, majority is "Any"), seems few controllers were more utilized(booked) than others, we don't see all the controllers usage as distributed evenly.  Can anyone explain why it is not even, why some of the controller is been highly utilized and few of the under utilized?







Recording against Excel 2010 with PowerPivot plugin using LR 12.53?Open in a New Window

Has anyone managed to successfully record against an Excel app that uses PowerPivot plugin for reporting purposes?

I have tried ticking 'Use protected application recording' but still having no luck.

The only protocol that records anything is Winsock but it is practically useless in terms of correlation, parameterisation!

Replay fails with "Connection reset by peer" early in the replay.

Using Wireshark, it l;ooks like communicaiton uses SMB2 and TCP/IP however digging into my Winsock script does seem to mention SOAP calls? (Webservices picks nothing up).

Some protocols like Webservices appear to show transaction count increasing during recording but result in an empty script.

Anybody had anything similar?



Analysis - Total Number of transactions report for every 30 mins duration for long run (12 hours)Open in a New Window

Hi, All.

Good day. 

Asking your assistance on providing me a suggestion/solution on how will i be able to get total Number of transactions report for every 30 mins duration for long run (12 hours) performance execution.

I can able to get manually if I change global filter in transaction summary for the particular period of time.

But our reqirement is to get total number of transactions for every 30 mins for 12 hours test.

For example:

0 - 30 mins  - 200 transactions

30 mins to 1 hour - 250 transactions

1 hour - 1.5 hours - 215 transactions




11.5 hours to 12 hour - 220 transactions.

Hoping to hear from you all soon. Thanks in advance.




Block licenses for a single PC-ProjectOpen in a New Window

Hi all,

I have question regarding vUser-licenses in Performance center.

It is possible to block vUser licences for only one project, so the other projects can't use these licenses?


- total licenses 3.500 vUser ProtocolA

- Project A: up to 1.000 vUsers

- Project B: up to 700 vUsers

- Project C: 2.000 vUsers (24/7 guaranteed)

In other words: Project C can use 2.000 vUser licenses exclusivly, other projects share the remaining licenses.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance, Christoph

Random parameters but uniqueOpen in a New Window

I don't know if I'm articulating this properly but here it goes. Keep in mind I'm using the WebTours and Newtours sites.

I have a departure and arrival locations e.g. Paris to Portland.  I can parameterize both the departure and arrival locations with separate parameters but both using the same dat file with all the possible locations. How can I make sure that when the departure parameter location is selected at random, the arrival parameter will pick any of the locations at random but NOT be the same location already selected as the departure location? For example, I dont want it to be Paris to Paris or Portland to Portland.
