Any script which is recorded in Loadrunner VUGen is called a 'Vuser Script'. This is then prefixed with the protocol that you use to record the script in question.
Database Vuser Scripts
Winsock Vuser Scripts
Web Vuser Scripts
COM Vuser Scripts.....
The script written in VUGen for Loadrunner is called as what? Is it just vuser script or vbscript?
A VUGen script is in fact a folder which contains a collection of files which make up the 'script'.
Within the script folder there is a .usr file, this basically is a config file which holds the names of all the other files associated with the script.
This normally consists of:
- .c files (each action has it's own .C file, including vuser_init and end)
- .prm file holding LR parameters in script
- .cfg file holding runtime settings configuration
- .usp file holding runtime logic
When you run the 'script', basically you get compiled version.
This leaves a pre_cci.c file (which you can read with a text editor) which contains all headers, functions, variables etc used by the script.
Finally, you get a scriptname.ci file which is a compiled binary which is the runtime version of your script.
If run from VUGen, after running you are left with a number of logfiles and results directory, though not when run from the controller.
Hope this helps.
