Pros and Cons

  • Server metrics like CPU, memory, and other resource utilization can be directly plugged into HP Performance Center. It also allows the plugging of Sitescope metrics directly with no effort for plugging these metrics into the analysis report.
  • HP Performance Center can manage the execution(s) [like baseline, load test, capacity test, stress test] for each application and can group them so it provides a great application management tool apart from running different test scenarios.
  • More than one test can be executed at the same time if we have multiple available load generators.
  • HP Performance Center can be administered centrally and provides great documentation for installation and configuration, if needed.
  • 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.

Load testing with HP Performance Center

Score 9 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • 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.
  • Monitoring tools like SiteScope, AppDynamics should be used apart from HP Performance Center. Would be great if the tool can give good monitoring on app and db servers.
  • As the load goes high, the cost increases. In the open source world, it's not a bad idea to consider the licensing cost.
