Micro Focus Performance Center

Below are some major scenarios where you can use HP Performance Center:
  • Performance center is supposed to be a complete performance management solution. So it provides a great asset to your organization when you want to see the specific set of test runs for a project. It provides all tests with comments (if mentioned).
  • When you have multiple load generators and more than one load test scenario needs to be executed at a time, teams don't have to wait for one test to complete to start another one. They can run simultaneous test runs if they have multiple load generators as Performance Center provides multiple Controllers.
  • It helps you to build custom design application models that enable the performance engineers to assess an enterprise, multi-tier, heavily-distributed, high-traffic application on how the application for that particular release meets its non-functional test requirements and SLA thresholds, which are key business transaction response times.
Below are some scenarios where it is less appropriate:
  • When we need to perform a diagnostic test run then very few data points are gathered for troubleshooting
  • When you have a budget issue as it provides a high licensing cost

Pros: Splunk is very well suited if you have multiple log sources of related data. All of them can be correlated and tasks can be automated based on the requirement. Other than alerts, Splunk can also run a specific script of your choice, based on some defined conditions. Cons: If you have a few logs but a large number of log sources, Splunk can be very expensive.

Pros

Micro Focus Performance Center

  • Ease of use and configuration settings.
  • Super cool performance test reports with various load parameters.
  • Flexible load selection using vuGen and option to steadily ramp up and ramp down the load.
  • Minimal coding in C which allows you to parameterize many inputs.
  • Load runner integration with HP Performance Center makes life easy for management to review the performance test results.

Splunk Enterprise

  • Allow for separation of control where we don't let some employees have access to production but still can diagnose issues.
  • Common location to go for all logs even if the logs themselves aren't in the same place.
  • Ability to ingest logs from different locations without having to change the code to put logs in a certain place (pro and con).

Cons

Micro Focus Performance Center

  • Integration with other tools like Dynatrace, is a little tedious.
  • Support around cloud solutions and architectures needs to be improved.
  • Sometimes we faced failures while collating the test runs and entire test runs need to be downloaded in a zip file which is a troublesome task for test engineers. Even opening those results in HP Analysis fails. Collating those failed runs needs to be improved.
  • Diagnostic runs only provide the result for 10% of users which is very low when we need to diagnose for a very low number of users. We get few data points for diagnostic test runs for fewer users.
  • Installation over the firewall is documented but can be done using a script based mechanism so it will make the installation task hassle free over the firewalls.

Splunk Enterprise

  • Even though there is a search tool as a help function, you still have to read through many documentation to find the answers you're looking for and sometimes you don't find it. The help function in Splunk could be improved to be more intuitive or have a built-in help per report, panel or dashboard.
  • Creating a Splunk dashboard is rather straightforward however, customization is not. Splunk could be improved to provide more tools or features for customization such as adding colors and font options for text and graphs or graphics.
  • My dashboard has a lot of useful information and I want the important panels and reports at the top but there is no easy way to do this. Perhaps Splunk could be improved to allow features such as adding URL links to other dashboards or some other clever way to emphasize the important data in my dashboard without compromising space.

We are using Splunk extensively in our projects and we have recently upgraded to Splunk version 6.0 which is quite efficient and giving expected results. We keep track of updates and new features Splunk introduces periodically and try to introduce those features in our day to day activities for improvement in our reporting system and other tasks.

You can literally throw in a single word into Splunk and it will pull back all instances of that word across all of your logs for the time span you select (provided you have permission to see that data). We have several users who have taken a few of the free courses from Splunk that are able to pull data out of it everyday with little help at all.

Splunk maintains a well resourced support system that has been consistent since we purchased the product. They help out in a timely manner and provide expert level information as needed. We typically open cases online and communicate when possible via e-mail and are able to resolve most issues with that method.

HP performance center stacks up very well for front end applications. Need more improvements for API performance testing.

Splunk Enterprise

Splunk is proving to be a formidable replacement for Qradar, which we had as our previous SIEM. Qradar was powerful, but not easy to customize and quite limited. Splunk is not per se a "SIEM" but it can be in the way you used it. Also there is an Enterprise Security App that is available to buy and sit on top of Splunk, and that will take care of any concerns with needing a full-fledged SIEM. Splunk wins.

Return on Investment

Micro Focus Performance Center

  • Since it can schedule multiple runs at the same time and we can allocate those runs through [the] time window, we get a huge number of performance testing projects and even some projects for benchmarking their response times.
  • Server monitoring becomes easy having HP Site-scope data directly plugged into it so it provides very minimal effort for providing the analysis report and thus our performance team saves tremendous time when creating the analysis HTML report.
  • Its distributed nature will let you choose load generators that can be geographically located anywhere, thus traffic simulations from multiple locations make it possible to create a real production scenario that is more trusted by our various clients.

Splunk Enterprise

  • I'm not a data analyst so I can not provide concrete examples on how the business has benefited from implementing Splunk. However, the analysts I have worked with have provided a wealth of support in reducing workstation issues across the enterprise. This alone reduces the time it takes to determine where the exact problem lies between a workstation and the servers it tries to communicate with.
