To create a MAR info file from an existing test case:
  1. In the
    Project
    panel of
    DevTest Workstation
    , right-click the test case and select
    Create MAR Info File
    .
    The

    Configuration
    field list.

  5. Select the coordinator server for this test case (if applicable) from the
    Coordinator server
    field list.
  6. Click
    OK
    .
    The .mari file is created in the same folder the test case resides in.
To create a MAR info file from an existing suite:
  1. In the
    Project
    panel of
    DevTest Workstation
    , right-click the suite and select
    Create MAR Info File
    .
    The

    , right-click the virtual service and select
    Create MAR Info File

  4. If this virtual service will be part of a virtual service group, enter a group name in the
    Group Tag
    field. A group tag must start with an alphanumeric character and can contain alphanumerics and four other characters: period (.), dash (-), underscore (_), and dollar sign ($).
  5. To indicate the load capacity, enter a number in the
    Concurrent capacity
    field.
    The default value is 1, but it can be increased to provide more capacity. Capacity is how many virtual users (instances) can execute with the virtual service model at one time. Capacity here indicates how many threads there are to service requests for this service model.
  6. Enter the think time percentage (regarding the recorded think time) in the
    Think time scale
    field.
    To double the think time, use 200. To halve the think time, use 50. The default value is 100.
  7. Select or clear the
    Start the service on deployment
    check box.
    This check box indicates whether the service starts immediately on deployment. The default is to start the service.
  8. Select or clear the
    If service ends, automatically restart it
    check box.
    Selecting this check box keeps the service running even after an emulation session has reached its end point.
  9. Click
    OK
    .
    The .mari file is created in the same folder the virtual service resides in.
