[k6 (formerly Load Impact)] is well suited to run performance automated suites and to run stress tests, spike tests and load tests[.] We can run tests from recorded [sessions] but we cannot run npm modules and we cannot run nod js libs[.]

Micro Focus LoadRunner and its suite of tools, specifically VuGen works wonderfully for us for all web, http/https and web service calls. We've been able to build tests for near any scenario we need with relative ease. As long as we have crafted up requirements for our scenarios / scripts to managed scope, we've had high success working with scripting and data driving. Our main tests are web service calls - typically chained together to form a full scenario with transactions measuring the journey or a similar (measure along the way) journey through a browser. For web services we will use VuGen and browser we've shifted to Tru Client I have had little-to-no experience scripting against a thick client where a ui-driven test would be required. I know its possible but quite costly due to the need to run the actual desktop client to drive tests. We've been fortunate enough to leverage http calls to represent client traffic.

    Customer service is not that great. It's difficult to get hold of someone if an issue is supposed to be addressed on an urgent basis. No online chat service readily available.

    The biggest point of using HP LoadRunner is the response time numbers captured after executing the tests were more accurate when we generated the same by using tools like JMeter or NeoLoad though it involves a certain licensing cost but what [we] needed was trust and accuracy where it makes a high mark. Secondly, the support we get from HP is awesome and the online forums help us to resolve lots of issues in tight project situations while JMeter or NeoLoad has fewer forums or they don't have good documentation compared to HP LoadRunner. Thirdly, the analysis feature provided by HP LoadRunner is easier to manage and can see more detailed correlated metric. This will help the developers to identify the actual bottlenecks in the application (like tuning some configuration or SQL queries etc.).

    • It has been a huge help for our team to determine the impact our application was going through each release. With performance testing and with the tool as good as HP performance center, it enabled our team to build lighter software with good tech and system reviews happening for each release. Although I can't measure ROI in number, I would definitely say that we are building better software using the inputs from this tool.
    • It's ease of use and many inbuilt functionalities makes a performance tester's life a lot easier and efficient.
