Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional Review

We use it to create scripts. It supports a range of technologies, including SAP.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the ease of using it to create scripts and the broad number of technologies supported, including apps, SAP, and everything on the web.

How has it helped my organization?

It enables us to really reproduce what users are doing in the application, not only as a single button or web service, but in the whole application. This helps us anticipate performance issues in production.

What needs improvement?

  • Licenses are too expensive in general.
  • They should remove the location or worldwide licensing fee. It is a special fee that you need to pay when you want to use a LoadRunner controller installed in the UK when you're working from Spain.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's quite stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. The biggest we've done is 20,000, but I know it can be done bigger.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have not used technical support in the past two years. Previously, it was too thick and too heavy to deal with them. They asked a lot of questions without providing solutions.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was really straightforward. You just install, make a couple of tests, and everything is connected.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also considered Neotys and SOASTA.

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be to use it.
