”Abnormal termination, caused by mdrv process termination” Error in Performance Center test.

When I'm executing a test in Performance Center 12.2, my Web HTTP/HTML Vusers are fail with the error "Abnormal termination, caused by mdrv process termination".

I have drilled down the error occurs just after I connect to the VTS server in my script. The scripts replay on the PC host machine via Vugen without error. Using the wlrun.exe on the same PC host machine, ran 5 Vusers in the controller and get the error, ran one Vuser and still get the error.

else//VTS Connect returned and error:

If pvci = TRUE (any positive value) then abort

{
lr_error_message("VTS Connection attemp failed with error code %d\\n",pvci);
lr_exit(LR_EXIT_VUSER,LR_FAIL);
}

/////From the Vusers logs here is where the mdrv error occurs///////

rc=lrvtc_query_column("NumVuser",1);

rc=lrvtc_query_column("IterationsCount",1);

Any suggestions on anything I am missing?

Private answer

The use of some Virtual Table Server (VTS) APIs can cause some abnormal termination of the mdrv.exe process in Performance Center (PC) 12.20.

In Performance Center 12.20, executing a load test containing scripts using C-based VTS API (i.e.: ''lrvtc_query_column'' and ''lrvtc_retrieve_message'') will cause an abnormal termination of the mdrv.exe process.

Solution

To fix the issue: Hot fix from HP for 12.20 or PC 12.20 patch 1 will fix this issue.

Backup the files SharedParameter.dll and SharedParameter.pdb located in bin (By default ''C:Program Files (x86)HPLoad Generatorbin'', ''C:Program Files (x86)HPPerformance Center Host''),
Copy and replace them with the fixed version contained in the attached SharedParameter.zip.

(Note: Get the patch 1 or Hot fix from HP or Orasi Support)
