What is our primary use case?
We use it to get response times around the world for external applications. We use it on top of our own virtual users for remote site testing. We include it in our scenarios in our performance center and use the results in the LoadRunner analysis tool.
How has it helped my organization?
We can determine response times for our external applications, from most places around the world, for a small fee.
What is most valuable?
The most valuable feature is having load generators in countries where we don’t have access to them.
What needs improvement?
An area for improvement is analytics on why response times are slow from certain countries. Slowness can be caused by the laptop, the connection, the VPN, the internal network, the country's internet, etc.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
It has been stable every time I have used it. We don’t put much stress on it since we have our own performance center and load generators.
How was the initial setup?
In terms of integration and configuration of the product in our AWS environment, it is the easiest Micro Focus tool I have ever used.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
The pricing is very reasonable and the licensing is straightforward.
You decide on the number of virtual users you will need to support multiple runs or for a year and purchase that quality of virtual-user hours. We chose to procure this solution via the AWS Marketplace because of remote site testing and low cost.
What other advice do I have?
I rate this solution a ten out of ten. It addresses a need in performance testing tools and is easy to purchase and use.
