Percentile value is a key statistics in performance report. Many architects rely on 90 and 95 percentile value. In the latest release of Apache JMeter, Aggregate Report has 90% Line, 95% Line, and 99% Line by default. Please refer my article on Percentile here. In HP LoadRunner, you need to make changes to get other percentile values. By default, HP LoadRunner or HP Analysis displays 90 percentile in summary report.
In this article, we will see about how to change percentile value. If you want to filter the summary report by 95 percentile, open the analysis file in HP Analysis. Go to View > Summary Filter, enter 95 in the Transaction Percentile which is under Additional Settings section.
Then click on OK. Summary report will get refresh and displays only 95 percentile values.
Another way to change the percentile is via Options dialog box. Go to Tools > Options, click on General tab, under Summary Report section, enter the percentile value in Transaction Percentile field.
Click on OK. Now the summary report will have your percentile statistics.
