Java Over HTTP Issue - Source Directory or File Does Not Exist

The issue happens when you record the application using java over http protocol. It is a bug in the loadrunner and the HP team fixed the issue with the following solution  there is also a patch which you need to download. If you have HP Passport access, please go through below link.


C:\Documents and settings\noname)\LocalSettings\Temp\noname10\data\ to C:\Documents and settings\no nameLocalSettings\Temp\noname10\data\ directory or file does not exist).

File not found '<Temp>\<Script>\data\'

The JVM fails to launch inside Vugen in order to parse the script and convert the custom_requests into valid XML / Java Objects.


Make sure you are using Java 6 with loadrunner 11.4 and below version.

Turn on the Windows 3GB switch and replace the existing "vugen.exe" with the appropriate updated version:

The system should then be restarted for the change to take effect. The change allows the operating system to enable LargeAddressAware programs to use the additional virtual memory address space. Note that the virtual address space is not related to the amount of physical memory in the system.

Having 3GB of virtual address space available to LargeAddressAware processes allows sufficient memory for Vugen to launch the JVM.

Please see the following links for more information about the 3GB switch and how to enable it:

Note: In some cases enabling the Windows 3GB switch has been known to cause issues such as system instability or application crashes. If this happens then the amount of virutal address space available to LargeAddressAware processes can be fine-tuned such that not all of the 3GB address space is available to the process, with the difference being returned to the kernel. A further switch (/USERVA=xxxx) where xxxx is the total size available to the process can be used together with the 3GB switch. For example:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional 3GB" /3GB /USERVA=2800 /fastdetect  /BOOTLOG

For more information about the /USERVA switch please refer to the following Microsoft article:

Sitescope Monitoring Tool Features and Monitors

Why Sitescope is called Agentless Monitoring Tool?
HP SiteScope monitors the application/infrastructure/server/operating system without installing any agent software on the system to be monitored. This feature makes the installation, usage and maintenance of Sitescope simpler when compared with the any performance monitoring tools like Diagnostics.
Sitescope Monitors:
Sitescope has also upgraded and changed drastically to meet the rapidly changing technologies and environments like virtualization and cloud computing. Using Sitescope we can monitor different web servers, application servers and database servers. We can also monitor operating systems Windows, Linux, Sun Solaris, IBM AIX. It has more than 100 monitors including Weblogic, Websphere, SAP, SIEBEL, SNMP, LDAP, Network Monitor etc. HP SiteScope can also monitor cpu utilization, response time, disk space, and resource availability of a variety of host types and application platforms.
Sitescope Features:
SiteScope provides failover …
