Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional Review

We evaluated other options but decided to stay with LoadRunner because of the depth & breadth of the protocols available

Valuable Features

The feature I find most valuable is the ability to find performance issues before putting a new application live.

Improvements to My Organization

LoadRunner is the standard choice for performance testing before any critical applications are allowed to go live, preventing any performance issues.

Room for Improvement

LoadRunner is a well-rounded, polished tool – but it does need more improvement when it comes to it application of load, more flexibility mid-test would be nice.

Use of Solution

Deployment Issues


Stability Issues


Scalability Issues


Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service: The Customer Service is good, the sales guys are not overly aggressive to sell, as the product does sell itself.Technical Support: The Technical Support is OK. It’s not as good as the Pre-HP acquisition days at Mercury.

LoadRunner runs an automated install which is quite simple.

Implementation Team

LoadRunner was installed in house.

Other Advice
