regenerate (republish) run trends for inclusion in a trend reportOpen in a New Window


my problem is that i selected a certain run for addition to a trend report. After this action it the run was trended as can be seen in the eventlog of the run: Publish trends started successfully. It ended up in the state Trended. Unfortunately something must have gone wrong since the percentile value for many measuraments have a value N/A in the trend report (I suspect that the problem was in the analysis).

My question is  can I regenerate (or republish) the trended data?

Installing HP Performance Center on AWS EC2Open in a New Window


We are exploring the option of moving all our ALM / UFT and PC infra from in-house machines to AWS EC2 cloud. I was able to install ALM / UFT and PC Server successfully and configure the same. PC Host installation/configuration passed as well. I can see all the related servcies running. But when I try to add the host in Lab Management, I get the following error when :

java.xml.ws.WebServiceException: org.apache.cxf.service.factory.ServiceConstructionException: Failed to create service

I have all the admin rights to the machine. All related ports have been opened. Firewall is disbaled. The PC load testing agent service is up and running as well. So not sure what service this is referring to. I tried creating a service ticket but that was shot down saying PC host is not supported on AWS EC2. Only standalone LG is supported. If I was able to install/configure PC server, I am wondering why PC host cannot be. Has anybody been successful at this? 

Any idea what this error message refers to? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Staying on the Test Run Page after the test finishOpen in a New Window


I executed a test for 3 iterations using HP Performance Center and some error happens during 2nd iteration.

I wish to stay on the Performance Test Run page to review the Messages and Transactions to determine where exactly it was failing. However, it does not seem possible as immediately when the test finishes (with error), it pops up a dialog box to ask if you wish to restart or close.

Hitting close will close the Test Run Page tab and thereafter there is no way to get back to the Test Run Page.I know it is possible to look at the result logs but it is more user friendly and efficient to drill down the errors from within the Test Run Page

 Does anyone know if there is a way to continue to stay on the Test Run Page even after the test finish?

Can you please help me with it ?!





Trouble getting result metadata via REST APIOpen in a New Window


I've been using the HP Performance Center Plugin for Jenkins for quite a while.  It works fine, but might be exiting sooner that it should or sooner than it used to.  I'm using it to run performance tests and the typical process the plugin follows is:

  1. Log in
  2. Start test
  3. Wait for test to finish
  4. Collate and analyze the results
  5. Log out

When it's done, I take the run ID and use the REST API to get the results metadata for the test run that just completed.  This used to work 100% of the time but now fails almost all the time.  This might have changed between PC versions 12.2x and 12.53.

The REST request looks like this:


The output from the REST call should look like this:

<RunResults xmlns="http://www.hp.com/PC/REST/API">
		<Type>Output Log</Type>
		<Type>Output Log</Type>
		<Type>Raw Results</Type>
		<Type>HTML Report</Type>
		<Type>Rich Report</Type>
		<Type>Analyzed Result</Type>

However it usually looks like this:

<RunResults xmlns="http://www.hp.com/PC/REST/API">
		<Type>Output Log</Type>

Or just this:

<RunResults xmlns="http://www.hp.com/PC/REST/API" />

There are no errors in the event log in PC for these runs.  In fact, if I rerun the request to get the results metadata, it works fine.

It appears that PC is somehow signalling to the Jenkins plugin that the collation and analysis is complete when in fact it isn't.  Sounds like a bug.

What can I do about this?

2. VuGen Script code troubleshooting

3. Build/maintain the HP ALM, Performance Center, loadrunner dashboards

2. Create HP ALM PC/Loadrunner test scripts. 



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
