Micro Focus LoadRunner

HP LoadRunner is well suited where we need to create a number of VUsers for testing application's performance. It's one of the best tools for application performance testing. It can integrate with most of CRM / ERP systems and thus provides wide applicability. The monitoring and analysis interface is user-friendly, thus providing the users with the application health and status quickly.However, it's not required for use if the application is not very complex or if the business enterprise is small / medium. Also, though the tool is efficient, additional cost apart from the license is required to purchase other modules and it is expensive if 24x7 support is required.

Alternatives Considered

Micro Focus LoadRunner

Loadrunner stacks up very well against these tools. All software have certain very strong features and that is what differentiates LoadRunner from all of these. It has accurate results and data. Reports are also very well formatted. Different data can be integrated and other languages can be integrated with this software to give better usage.

Return on Investment

Micro Focus LoadRunner

  • The scripts created with traditional web/http protocol are not robust thus re-scripting is required after most every code drop. Troubleshooting and fixing the issue takes more time therefore in most cases we do re-scripting to keep it simple and save time.
  • In ideal world you would rather spend more time doing testing than scripting in that case mostly you could use an Ajax TruClient protocol. This type of script will only fail when an object in the application is removed or changed completely. This way of scripting will save you more time and helps you maintain the scripts with less re-work effort on a release basis. On the long run you will have a better ROI when you use Ajax TruClient protocol for scripting.
