LoadRunner 12.53 content check issue in ControllerOpen in a New Window


I am using LoadRunner 12.53. I simply created a HTTP script and added contect check rules. Then I created a test scenario and added this script into it.  I could see the the rules when I open content check in runtime settings in controller. But once I save the scenario, close it and open it again. The content check rules are disappeared.

Does anyone has the issue?

Many thanks,

Can't run more than 19 users via Performance Center.Open in a New Window


I test not public application.

I use PC 12.53.

I recorded very small HTML/HTTP script against the application which I test. The script runs fine as single user via Vugen. When I try to run my script with multiple users via PC, it success to run only 19 users. The users 20, 21 etc. pass directly from state "Init" to state "Error".  At the log I see the following error messages:

"Continuing after error -27496: Internal Error - InternetCloseHandle failed for item at 044BB908, Windows error code=6. Assuming the item can be deleted, but error(s) may occur in fvLrwNetWinInetCallback, Snapshot Info [MSH 1 137]"

"Unknown service name VuserNotifyEndStatusData , moniker 20"

Any ideas? 10x.

Performance Center 12.53 – REST API namespace correctionOpen in a New Window

Lately it was found out that there was a mistake in the namespace that was used in the PC REST API requests examples in the online and offline documentation for PC 12.53.

The examples were using the namespace "http://www.hpe.com/PC/REST/API” while the correct namespace should be "http://www.hp.com/PC/REST/API”.

The online documentation was already corrected to use the required namespace while the offline documentation still contains the wrong namespace. The offline documentation will be corrected in the next possible patch.

One example of the wrong namespace is in the “Start a Test Run” example where the line <Run xmlns="http://www.hpe.com/PC/REST/API"> should be updated to <Run xmlns="http://www.hp.com/PC/REST/API">.


Can no longer start test via REST API in 12.53Open in a New Window


We upgraded from PC 12.2x to 12.53 last week and I can no longer start tests via the REST API.  I've tried using both the Jenkins plugin (versions 4.0 and 4.5) and using a custom REST client.  I can do other things like log in, log out, and download results, but I cannot start a test.

The URL I use is /LoadTest/rest/domains/MyDomain/projects/MyProject/Runs.

This is an example request:

<Run xmlns="http://www.hpe.com/PC/REST/API">
	<PostRunAction>Collate Results</PostRunAction>

This is the response:

<Exception xmlns="http://www.hp.com/PC/REST/API">
  <ExceptionMessage>Invalid Request. Please verify that all mandatory fields defined and root element contain PC API namespace.</ExceptionMessage>

As far as I can tell from the documentation, the request is correct.  Did the API change?

Performance Test ends early with error: "Failed to collect statistics from Controller..."Open in a New Window

Hi All,

I am using PC 12.01 version and facing one issue. When I run a load test, it mostly stops in between 5 - 45 minute mark.  Steady state duration is 1 hour but unfortunately it never finishes the test. The error shown in the event log says "Failed to collect statistics from controller, internal error: "There was an error reading form the pipe: The pipe has been ended. (109, 0x6d).

"Failed to collect statistics from Controller, internal error: 'This request operation sent to net.pipe://localhost/CntrlService/Service did not receive a reply within the configured timeout (00:20:00). The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout. This may be because the service is still processing the operation or because the service was unable to send a reply message. Please consider increasing the operation timeout (by casting the channel/proxy to IContextChannel and setting the OperationTimeout property) and ensure that the service is able to connect to the client.'

"Failed to stop test. Reason: 'The request channel timed out while waiting for a reply after 00:10:00. Increase the timeout value passed to the call to Request or increase the SendTimeout value on the Binding. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout. The HTTP request to 'http://pcctrl01.solon.prd:8731/LTOP/LoadTestingService/LoadTestingService' has exceeded the allotted timeout of 00:10:00. The time allotted to this operation may have been a portion of a longer timeout.'

Can anybody help me here as I am clueless how to proceed. facing this issue sincs last week only. earlier it was working fine for me.

running scripts on perfomance center load generatorOpen in a New Window

Good day, everyone.

I have a challenge running scripts with Web-HTTP(HTML) protocol developed on HP Loadrunner using HP Perfomance Center Load Generator & Controller (OS: Windows).

Some HTTP requests in scripts contains cyrillic strings and loadgenerator seems to encode them wrong.

"Инициирование" to "Èíèöèèðîâàíèå", for example.

web_submit_data() call fragment:

	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pName", "Value=Тестовая организация {org_code}", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pINN", "Value=99010{org_code}", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pKPP", "Value=990100001", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pOGRN", "Value=10990100{org_code}", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pAddressList$l1$pPostalCode", "Value=109097", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pAddressList$l1$pCountry", "Value=Российская Федерация", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pAddressList$l1$pCity", "Value=Москва", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pAddressList$l1$pStreet", "Value=Ильинка", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pAddressList$l1$pHouseNum", "Value=99", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pAddressList$l1$pHouseExt", "Value=1", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pAddressList$l1$pUnitNum", "Value=1", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pTmpBankrupt$pAddressList$l2$pPostalCode", "Value=109097", ENDITEM,  
	"Name=$PpyWorkPage$pProject$pProcedureName", "Value=Инициирование", ENDITEM,  

I can convert my scripts which text is in windows-1251 (cp1251) encoding to UTF8, but it has no impact on resulting encoding when requests sent to application under test. As well as "Convert To\From UTF8" from runtime settings.

System locale on loadgenerator machine connected to HP PC is EN (windows-1252, i guess).

Should i set default code page for ANSI characters in windows registry (HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage) to "1251" or change system locale completely? Any other solutions?

lr_vuser_status_message() function usage in Performance CenterOpen in a New Window


Since I don’t see any post related this, posting a new one!


I could see the description about lr_vuser_status_message() function in LR help file as below,


"The lr_vuser_status_message function sends a string to the Status area of the Controller. It also sends the string to the Vuser log. When run from VuGen, the message is sent to output.txt."


This is more related with controller, my question/doubt here is, What if I run in Performance Center?

Where I can see the current vuser status message? Is it possible to see, if so where is the option exist?



I explored all the options, I could not see anything related. Please help me on this..
