Below is the Loadrunner Workflow - An article for beginners

Plan Load Tests:
1. Identify Business Critical Scenarios. Scenario means a manual work flow. Ex: Login - Open an Account -  Logout.
2. Estimate User Load. Performance Testing requirements will give an idea of users load or the number of users using the product. This will determine the load to be used against the product in testing.

3. Work Load:
Ex: 100 user Running together. Of this 60 users book a Browse a website. 30 users search a product and 10 users buy the Product.

What is Virtual User (Vuser) ?
Virtual users or Vusers emulate the steps of real users. The steps that Vusers perform are recorded in a Vuser Script.

What is VuGen (Virtual User Generator) ?
1. VuGen records Vuser Scripts that emulate the steps of real users using the application
2. VuGen not only records Vuser scripts, but also runs them. Running scripts from VuGen is useful for debugging
3. VuGen records sessions on Windows platforms only. However, a recorded Vuser script can run on both Windows and UNIX platform.

Process of Recording Script:
1. Record a basic script
2. Enhance the basic script by adding the control-flow statements and other Mercury API functions into the Script
3. Configure the Run-time settings
4. Verify that the script runs correctly, run it in stand-alone mode
5. Integrate into your test : a LoadRunner scenario, Performance Center load test, Tuning module session, Business process monitor profile
