LoadRunner Review

It has helped our clients to find performance bottlenecks and capacity issues before deployment.

What is most valuable?

  • 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.

How has it helped my organization?

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.

What needs improvement?

The extended features are available but the high pricing is an issue.

For how long have I used the solution?

I am using HPE LoadRunner for six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

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.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have experienced scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

HPE provides excellent technical support. The process is lengthy and time- consuming, but the quality is excellent.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used Apache JMeter too, but it supports limited protocols. HPE LoadRunner's protocol support is wide.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy; HPE Documentation is one of the biggest benefits.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Apache JMeter.

What other advice do I have?

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.
