Can OpenStack VM's handle LoadRunner?

asked 2018-07-11 13:15:06 -0500

We are trying to virtualize our LoadRunner testing environment using OpenStack as our "on prem" cloud solution.

The current state is a pool of 25 physical engineering class desktop computers running Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit with 16 GB of RAM and 8 cores.

Trying various OpenStack flavors, but continually run the CPU utilization over 80%, causing errors to be issued from LoadRunner Controller. Most recent flavor was c3.4xlarge with 16 VCPUs and 32 GB of RAM.

Even with 16 VCPU's the utility that measures the specs of the computer only reports 2 cores on the OpenStack VM.

Is LoadRunner (TruClient protocol) simply too fat for OpenStack?
