- Auto Correlation: It saves time while designing the performance testing scripts.
- Extended Reporting: It saves time in report designing and also, provides the option to select the quantum of information to represent.
I have performed performance testing for a number of clients using HPE LoadRunner. It has helped them in finding the performance bottlenecks, capacity issues before deployment.
The extended features are available but the high pricing is an issue.
I am using HPE LoadRunner for six years.
I have found some stability issues for one of the website. After a number of concurrent users, the web server was unable to handle the load.
I have experienced scalability issues.
HPE provides excellent technical support. The process is lengthy and time- consuming, but the quality is excellent.
I have used Apache JMeter too, but it supports limited protocols. HPE LoadRunner's protocol support is wide.
The initial setup is easy; HPE Documentation is one of the biggest benefits.
The price is a bit high but if you procure the HPE LoadRunner you will get many benefits such as excellent technical support, a wide range of supported protocols, a great document library and easy help from the technical communities for your problems.
We evaluated Apache JMeter.
I will suggest to first understand what is your requirement and then list down the tools available, which can help in delivery. We need to make an appropriate choice by keeping the budget in mind. If pricing is not an issue then choose LoadRunner, else evaluate other options.
