A closer look at traffic filtering enhancements in LoadRunner 12.02

Mon, 01/12/2015 - 20:00

When you record a business process, much of the generated traffic does not contribute to the load test in any meaningful way. This happens because browsers and other client applications often visit other hosts and web applications—which are not actually part of the business process.
