Tuesdays Tips: Demystifying the LISA Runtime Info tab found in Help

Discussion created by dovle01 Employee on Apr 29, 2015

When trying to understand why a certain workstation works and another does not, one of the first places to look is the Licensing.  Based on your license options, you are allowed to perform various functions.  For instance, if you can see the VSE Server console from your remote workstation and not from the LISA Load and Performance Server, it is the license that is enabling the LISA L&P Workstation that does not have VSE enabled in its license (this is by design).  There are ways to work around that and this will be discussed in a separate Tuesdays Tips.  But the question remains, "How do I  know for certain what is enabled and what is not without having to contact Support?"  The following is a table that extends the table found in the LISAWorkstation under Help and LISA Runtime Info.

maxresources51/10/50/100/Multiples of 250Maximum number of Concurrent Simulated Virtual Users for use in minor to Full Load and Performance Testing.  Typically a LISAWorkstation will have 1 or 10 as well as some server components such as a Simulator, Coordinator, and VSE Server.  The only LISA Component that has more than 10 is the Registry.  The Registry determines how many Concurrent VU's.  Typically, 100 VU's are assigned to the LISA Server Registry as a Try and Buy
