Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional Review

Supports multiple protocols, easy to install and use, and handles large workloads


What is our primary use case?

We are it using the solution mainly for the REST-based API.

What is most valuable?

It is quite a good tool. It supports a medical protocol which we tried to explore in other products, but none of them had. It is very difficult to get data tool support in these solutions but LoadRunner does support them, it is a big advantage. Overall, It is pretty simple, easy to use.

What needs improvement?

My team members predominately used the product to do development but I don't think it needs anything in a way of improvements.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for over two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We didn't see any challenge with this product at all.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution can handle a huge amount of workloads, it's quite scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

We found the support to be good. Whenever there is an issue with anything, within 24-hours we get an answer. If we want someone from their team to look into an issue, they will log it, analyze it and get back to us.

How was the initial setup?

The installation took around 20 to 30 minutes.

What about the implementation team?

We did the installation and deployment of the product ourselves. It's simple and pretty easy. We were using the LRP, we did not need any technical guidance for anything. We simply installed the configuration, then a few clicks, and we were done.

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

There is a licensing cost that is expensive. There is also the Enterprise version of the software which allows other features that the Professional does not, such as, license sharing.

What other advice do I have?

We are going to continue to use the product in the future, I recommend this product. However, those who are looking for only REST-based on the API, I would recommend some other tool because of the cost. There are others available on the market.

I rate Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional an eight out of ten.
