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.

Cons

Micro Focus LoadRunner

  • HP LoadRunner with new patches and releases sometimes makes no longer support older version of various protocols like Citrix, which makes the task time-consuming when using older versions of LoadRunner for some of the cases. So it should support older version as well while upgrading.
  • Configuring HP LoadRunner over the firewall involves lots of configuration and may be troublesome. So, there should be a script (power shell script for Windows or shell script for Linux users) to make it easy to use and with less pain.
  • I would like to see the RunTime Viewer of Vugen in HPLoadRunner based on the browser I selected in the run-time configuration to make it feel more realistic as a real user.
  • Licensing cost is very high when we need to perform a test on application for a specific group of users.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Micro Focus LoadRunner

Most of the above tools are pretty popular in the industry. These are tools that are way cheaper compared to the industry giant LoadRunner. Yet these tools have their own limitations and drawbacks. In BlazeMeter the user load cannot be modified during the test run. JMeter and BlazeMeter supports only web, web services and citrix. SLA configuration is not available with NeoLoad.
