LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

So the new LR 11.5 IDE looks very good with more stuff , but seems to be very slow on my machines & the machines are pretty powerful at 12 core/ 64 GB RAM servers.

 

Are there any tweaks or things which i can do to tone down to make the IDE go faster ? takes a long time to run some scripts , switch views ...

 

thanks

Prabhu

Re: LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

On a 12 core/64 GB RAM machine, it should be ultra fast as the recommended configuration is 4GB or higher for the best performance.

Re: LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

Can you provide an example? I know when starts loading intially it loads it takes a while, but after that subsequent loads are quick.

Re: LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

Start a compile takes a while before it shows up that it has done something 5-10 seconds 

launch Run time setting sporadically takes a long time to show up.

 

Start a script - 10-20 seconds before i see the  view/layout changed ,logs to roll etc

Re: LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

A new service pack, 11.51, was just recently released. I haven't tried it myself yet, but sounds like it could help:

Re: LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

Hi All,

 

You are correct, there is a severe performance issue in VuGen 11.50 and 11.51 for some customers.

Please review the original thread discussing this issue: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/LoadRunner-Support-Forum/VUGen-11-5-extremely-slow-on-playback/td-p/585...

 

We (the LR development team) consider this a critical bug with top priority and it should be resolved in the upcoming patch 11.52 which should be released by the end of April.

 

What you can currently do is:

1) The first replay may take longer because on the first replay it needs to initialize the runtime environment. Subsequent replays should start much faster. 

 

2) Disable animated run, we identified it as a bottleneck for the replay process.

 

3) Use one of the dlls I provided on the other thread (if your problem is with the extended log).

 

 

I would really appreciate if you stay in touch with me once patch 11.52 is released to make sure that the slowness is resolved for you. As I previously mentioned, this issue has been raised by several customers and we would like to make sure that the new VuGen performs as expected for all of the affected customers.

 

Thanks,

Boris.

 

P.S.

 

Your machine should more than enough to run VuGen properly (way, way more).

Re: LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

Hi Boris,

 

I'm also having the same problem. The new Vugen is extremely slow compared to 11.04.

 

It's worth noting it's not just playback, it seems everything is slow, from launching the IDE to opening a scrip, from running a test to opening a dialogue. 

 

It's ironic a Performance Test tool has severe performance issue with itself. Hope the HP QA team can do a better job.

 

Thanks

Allen

Re: LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

Hi Allen,

 

As I mentioned in an earlier post the performance issue was identified for some of our users. The performance issue is treated as a critical bug and should be resolved in the upcoming patch. Meanwhile you can use one of the temporary solution I provide.

 

I know the QA team is going a good job but I am sure you can understand that we cannot cover 100% of the environment-script constellations our users have. As soon as we received the first reports of the performance issue we began a deep investigation of the factors that are causing it.

 

If you require further assistance or information, please feel free to contact me via the forum or a private message.

 

Thanks,

Boris

Re: LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

Other than overall slowness in LR 11.5, I had observed two issues which I would like to mention here 

 

Not able to open the script by directly clicking on the .usr file in the path. It just stuck. So I have to open Vugen first and then open the script from file menu. Does not matter whether script is in shared path or local drive.

 

Second, sometime I see HP.Utt.StandaloneDebugger.exe still running in the background though I have stopped the run. This creates issue as it can not close the GUI (mostly I am using SAP) much after test finished. So I have to kill this manaully to make Vugen available for next run.

 

I have attched screenshots. 

 

Not sure if anybody else is getting these issues?

 

One of the suggestion I got from SAP LR support guy (we have purchased the LR from SAP due to nature of agreement who in turn get support from HP) to disable DEP. I did that and seems it is better now though not completely resolve slowness issues.

 

Hope HP QA guys will fix slowness issue soon, looking forward to it. 

Thanks

Re: LR 11.5 - IDE is sluggish

Yes maybe 11.52 will hopefully. I also made the observation that working with the Editor to create a script. The slowness of the new editor make working with it a real pain. My suggestion for the developers of the new VUGEN they should try to hand wrote an script with the new LR and then they should do the same with the previous version LR 11.04 the opposite it is like night and day. It is interesting to hear that not only I suffers from this.

 

For me the mostly painful thing is still the replay and the regenerate of a script which took now very long compared to the last version.

 

Best Regards,

Jürgen
