IBM Rational Performance Tester Review

It has improved our visibility of reporting and simplified performance testing for larger projects/programs, but the installation and configuration processes need improvement.


Valuable Features:

  • Root cause analysis 
  • Provides the response time breakdown at the method level
  • Real time monitoring of CPU
  • Memory
  • Disk utilization

Improvements to My Organization:

It has improved our visibility of reporting and simplifying performance testing for larger projects/programs. Also, it is being used for functional validation as well as for performance regression testing for on going builds/releases.

Room for Improvement:

Installation and configuration processes, and support from IBM all need to be improved.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for six months.

Initial Setup:

Implementation is simple, but exploring the capability of this tools hasn't being marketed as well as LoadRunner/Performance Center 12 has been. More education needs to be provided to users.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: I am a partner, as is my customer.
