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.

  1. After changing the value to 95. How can i use the template in Performance centre ? Can you please elaborate on the steps.
    Step 1 – Reports – > Report Templates and created a report template called “ReportTemplate7”.
    Step2 – Tools – > Templates and created a template called “Test123”
    In apply/edit template window, Ticked “Generate following automatic rich reports” under rich reports section. Also, selected “ReportTemplate7” and then saved.
    Step 3 – opened LR Analysis template folder and created zip file
    Step 4 – I upload the zip file in Performance center and created a template with the zip file and applied the template for the scenario. But the template is not getting reflected in Performance Centre
