Apparently there is a Broadvison plugin available for LoadRunner although I got most performance details by turning on performance logging (as a level 4 log) and running BVConf Monitor.

are you talking about the bvwebstone load-test tool?  which is an enhanced version of webstone.
only for Solaris/HP


Basically you get webstone from bv either via ftp or whatever method.
setup webstone env variables (root and root\bin)
chmod a+x
install
Stop IM and restart it with a option –g for generating a scenario
imgr_conf -a stop –A IM_name
imgr_conf -a start –A  IM_name -g scenario1

Go to a browser and access the interaction manager. Generate a  scenario by clicking through a test path from beginning to end, the interaction manager is recording whatever your browser is doing to it.  When you are done stop the IM and restart it again.
Imgr_conf -a stop –A IM_Name
imgr_conf -a start –A IM_Name

You should find a file in /tmp that is the raw recording, named with your scenario name as postfix.
$ ls /tmp/smgr_scenarioi_[sc_name]

Parse the test scenario:

      cp  /tmp/smgr_scenario_scenario_1  $WEBSTONEROOT/conf
      cd  $WEBSTONEROOT/conf
      chmod -R 777 scenario postmsg
      rm -R scenario/* postmsg/*
      parse_capture -b scenario_1 -d scenario_1 smgr_scenario_scenario_1

A bunch of files are generated in the postmsg dir and the scenario dir. A [sc_name].scen file and many  .n post message files where n is 0 to however many screens your scenario consists of.

You can first test the scenario with webping, which sends the
scenario messages to the target system in a serial manner.

Assume the following configuration:

Web server: hpport3
port:       8000
app name:   MyBank

webping hpport3 -p 8000 -n 3 -g /cgi-bin/MyBank -S [Scen_Name] -d

The -n option specifies how many times you want to repeat the
scenario.  The -d option turns on debugging.

You may use other options of webping and mtest:
webping <hostname> -p <http port> -n 10 -c 1 -g /cgi-bin/inetcgi -k -P /login.html

webping and mtest are scripts that call webclient and can be used for running clients on a single machine.  By using -k option for webping we generated a simple scenario to access the login.html page 10 times.  Scenarios are recorded clicks through the site that are saved to be played back by the webclients.  We can generate scenarios by stepping through the site and have the interaction manager record each step.

To have mtest print out the timing for each page the mtest script must be modified.  At the webclient call add:

      $WEBSTONEROOT/bin/webclient -i 0 -d <rest of line>

The mtest script can be more useful because it generate a log file each time it is run so you have a history. For example,
      mtest.1loopsx1clients.99.04.21.14.39.39
      mtest.1loopsx1clients.99.04.21.14.20.15

To Test Site Stability

• Run multiple test using mtest, endperf and multi perf and monitor processes with top or bvconf monitor.
• Run test for long duration and watch for errors in the logs, IM memory growth and IM crashes.
• Monitor and continue to analyze after going live.

Running endperf.  Assuming that the clients are simulated on the system MyHost.

endperf -c MyHost -n 10 -s hpport3 -g /cgi-bin/MyBank -p 8000 -S [Scen_Name] -t 20

The -c option specifies the client machine, -n for number of clients to simulate, -s for target server, -t for duration of the test in minutes.
