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.
