Micro Focus LoadRunner Enterprise Review

We can view tests at run time, which has helped us to execute tests from different time zones. However, sometimes the Book Time Slot option hangs if I cancel any test or time slot.


What is most valuable?

The most valuable features to us are--

  • Ease of uploading the scripts, and
  • Script maintenance.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Multiple users from different locations can login.
  • We can view tests at run time, which has helped us to execute tests from different time zones.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes the Book Time Slot option hangs if I cancel any test or time slot. Also, if the results file gets corrupted, then we need to contact HP to get the raw results.

For how long have I used the solution?

  • Standalone PC – six years
  • SaaS PC – two years

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We encountered no issues when deploying.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We've had no issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We've scaled without issue.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer service is excellent.

Technical Support:

Technical support is excellent.

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

I have used Borland SilkTest, JMeter and LoadUI. JMeter and LoadUI have limitations in terms of the protocols. SilkTest is not as user friendly as Performance Center.

How was the initial setup?

It was not complex, but I needed to consult HP support a couple of times for clarification and for help in registering the load injectors.

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house.

What was our ROI?

If the organization is going to test multiple protocols like Ajax, TruClient, Citrix, and SAP frequently, then there is definitely a high ROI in using this tool. If it's only the HTTP protocol being used, then other less expensive tools will be sufficient.

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

It is quite expensive.
