We just upgraded to LoadRunner 7.0.2 (installed on new hardware), but we still
have an old testing machine set up with LR 6.0.
We create scripts and execute scenarios on the LR 6.0 setup loading just our home page (both HTML and HTTP format), and the homepage
response time averages <1 sec. If we create and execute a script the same script in the LR 7.0.2 setup, the homepage response time averages 40+ sec. We've verified that the hardware and network connection are not causing the slowdown. I've tried both commenting out and deleting the cookies with no better results. I've even tried creating a script with LR6 and then executing it in LR7; the newer controller has no problem executing the old script, but the results are just as slow.
Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this? I'm not sure if it's some setting. I'm guessing it's gotta be a setting in LoadRunner 7.0.2 but it's nothing I can immediately find.
Since I do not know what your settings are set to, make sure you are not running one as a process and the other as threads, and if you are ip spoofing make sure it is enabled and also make sur ein the advanced settings that ip spoofing is turned on for whatever method you are using (thread or process).
Hope this helps. More info about your settings may help.

I figure if you have the courage to get out of bed in the morning, then how bad can the day be.
Well, we have caching disabled. Browser emulation is set to "use maximum bandwidth" in both environments and for all scenarios. No iteration pacing or staging is going on at all. Both scripts are being run as threads (as far as I know). I have to double-check that but I'm pretty sure. Also, we're not IP spoofing at all.
