    Recording Summary Correlations TC Coded

  • Web ProtocolCorrelation improvements

    Record SummaryOther Enhancements

  • Correlations: Rules

    o Static update of the rules databaseo Adding new rules, updating existing, removing obsolete

    o Get info from customers, support, QA

    o Emphasis on common frameworks and packaged apps(SAP, Oracle, etc.)

    o Auto DB upgrade

    o Frequent update of the DB which will be on remote server,and suggest the clients once there is a newer version

    o Social network sharing for correlation ruleso Once new rule is created, it will be uploaded to the shared DB for other users immediate usage

    o v12.55o post v12.55

  • Correlations improvementsAttribute Based Correlations (ABC)

    New correlation API that allow dynamic value extraction from HTML documents All the correlation API require forward looking text search (boundary search, XPATH, JPATH) and/or well

    defined text pattern (regular expression)

    Define the HTML node attributes and the attribute value needed for correlation

    The attributes order can change, the value will get extracted every time!

  • Correlations improvements Cont.

    Attribute Based Correlations how does it look like?

    Generic rule:

    Ignore correlation values shorter than RecordingOptions.MinimalCorrelationLength

    Heuristic are used to filter out values

    Disregards excluded strings

    Attributes names are case insensitive

  • User select which correlation type to use

    Correlations improvements Cont.

    Attribute Based Correlations Design Studio

  • Recording Summary Report

    Post record the user will get a summary report Information will include:

    Transport format and versions

    SSL settings Hosts involved

    Headers and HTTP response code

    Content types Recommendation for DFE

    Transaction breakdown

    Filter servers\resources\headers Allow the user to change settings that require

    script regeneration before working on the script

  • GWT 2.7 support. Request Factory (GXT) New Wireshark and PCAP versions support

    PCAP parsing support in Java over HTTP, Flex, WinSock, Oracle

    HTTP/2 completion 64 bit recording

    Client side breakdown

    NV Insights Linux

    Edge browser recording usability

    Streaming support completion live, HLS, Lightstreamer

    Enhanced measurements & graphs

    Web Services protocol security improvements

    Ciphers and security updates

    Enhanced Fiddler import

    Proxy recording improvements

    DFEs multiple enhancements

    Error messages improvements

    Recording troubleshooting enhancements

    Non-standard authentication methods support

    HAR generation as generic feature in VuGen Enhanced measurements in HAR file

  • TruClient Coded[Technical preview]

    Convert the recorded TruClient script model to JavaScript. Work on all TC flavours: Firefox, IE and Chromium

    A TruClient script can contain both coded and model Actions Support code completion Object Spy allow you to identify objects from the application and add them to the code

  • TruClient coded

  • JMETER integration

  • JMETER integration

    Run side-by-side LoadRunner and JMeter tests, on local / remote machines


    - Users should be able to run JMeter test on their machine (install JAVA, JMeter)

    - Users should configure basic environment variables (%JMETER_HOME%)

  • How does it look like?

  • IoT Internet Of ThingsMQTT Protocol SupportCoAP Support

  • Internet Of Things - IoT

    20 billion IoT devices will be in use in 2027

    Gartner, Newsroom, Egham, U.K., February 7, 2017

  • Creating an MQTT script using VUGEN Simple, lightweight, replay only protocol Designed to generate load on MQTT broker by emulating sensors/devices behavior Supports broker authentication and SSL/TLS connection

  • MQTT Script

    MQTT publisher script example

    MQTT subscriber script example

  • MQTT monitors in Controller

  • CoAP support in LoadRunner

    The CoAP protocol for HPE LoadRunner (powered by EndPoint IoT) allows performance testing against front-end CoAP proxies with the supported methods/verbs to determine scalability and reliability under heavy use. This is typically for use with IoT (Internet of Things) platforms and applications. The add-in is available in the Market place here
