Performance Center Review

It gives you a wide-ranging view on performance bottlenecks, from CPU to memory to network, but I would like to see them integrate it with a mobile UI to automate scripts.

How has it helped my organization?

It gives you a wide-ranging view on performance bottlenecks, from CPU to memory to network etc. This helps identify possible bottlenecks in the production environment, as well as the expected/unexpected loads.

What needs improvement?

Mobile testing - integrate it with a mobile UI to automate scripts and run it concurrently.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for five years alongside HP LoadRunner v9.0 to v11.50, and HP UFT.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered, but an upgraded patch is required.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

How are customer service and technical support?

7/10. Since 70% of the market share is HP, it is very common, and tough, to reach them for support. The estimated wait time is always at least 20 minutes.

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

No previous solution was used.

How was the initial setup?

It’s fairly easy and straightforward. With the current version, 12.0 and above, it looks and feels complicated, and not user friendly to implement.

What about the implementation team?

Through a vendor team.

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

The price has skyrocketed, and to stay competitive, they need to reduce the licensing costs.

license cost has to be restructured and reduction as per use.
