Overall Satisfaction with Micro Focus LoadRunner (formerly HP LoadRunner)

Loadrunner is being used by specific departments that are doing QA in our company. Not all QA teams use this software for their use, it is specific departments. It clearly addresses issues related to performance and load of software applications. Every software that is created has to go through this process and we need to understand what a large client-base would do to our applications. It measures performance and generates reports.
  • It can simulate multiple users at the same time and help understand the performance.
  • It can generate excellent reports and give insights into application performance.
  • It is a fast tool and does not take time to perform its functions.
  • The UI of the software can be improved.
  • It should also have integration and testing or automation with mobile UI.
  • Configuration settings are a bit complex.
  • It has a positive impact as we know how PE testing is (performance).
  • It helps with integrating data from various data streams and includes anomaly testing.
  • It does a good job with the accuracy of results. The results are very accurate.
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.
It is very well suited under situations where there is a test required for concurrent users and firing several service calls on the application. It is very good at getting these results accurately. It can test multiple calls at the same time and also has connectivity with the servers. It supports multiple applications and networking technologies by using specific modules.
