When i am monitoring performance of Apache web server i am getting an error as Monitor name :Apache. Failed to send a request to server ... Url:-- .
The web server is running on Linux platform.
SO, in Add measurements i had entered machine name where apache webserver located and in Platform i selected N/A(because there is no option of Linux).And i have given port no and Url.When it starts monitoring an error is generating.Is this is the problem with Linux Platform?.
LoadRunner can't magically pull the statistics from the boxes, you need to make sure the associated monitoring tools are available to be run on the Linux box and, youu may need to supply a working account for LoadRunner to connect and get the statistics.
Loadrunner's behaviour is to connect to rstatd daemon using port 111. Then, to obtain the actual dynamic port number used for communication with the server, the rstat daemon assigns a dynamic port to loadunner (using the port mapper I think) , e.g. port 34378. However, if there is a firewall between yourself and the server being monitored you will need to use the 'monitoring over firewall' approach.
