Hi Martin,
Please find the attched wiresharkl files captured during navgation of same flow manually & by load runner.
manually we observed 161 entries and when we capture the same process by load runner we observed 369.
We made sure there is no extra browser or extra software running n the system.
Please find the attchment for both the files.  Info ont he extra entries during load runner capture will help us greatly.

You need to provide a little more info for us to help.

I am sure that "Ethernt 2, src : HewlettP_5c:80:39" isn't all that appears the information on the packets you are seeing. The best guess is that "Ethernet 2" is the name of interface and that "HewlettP_5c:80:39" is simply the source MAC address of the packet (where the first 3 bytes of the actual MAC address xx:xx:xx get resolved to HewlettP")

I think we would need to see a well-filtered sample of the packets from your manual and Loadrunner scenarios to be able to compare. (Loadrunner tries to "emulate" clients so it simply might be not be a perfect emulator)

Regards, Martin

Hi ,
I have a scenario and i observed around 160 wire shark calls for manual navigation of that scenario,.The same scenario I am trying to capture by using load runner with Wireshark enabled, but observed 240 calls.
Can anyone clarify why there are extra calls for navigating the same scenario by load runner.
Each extra call has Etehernet syntax as below :
Ethernt 2, src : HewlettP_5c:80:39
It will be great if someone can clarify the above...
