We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The reporting mechanism is a valuable feature that generates good reports.I think that analytics is very good and that the analytics features are very powerful.I like the user interface. I like the way we can divide our scenarios and can tune them. The integration with the quality center is great. These features are really good.The load testing, reporting, and scripting features are all valuable features.The solution is quite stable.The initial setup and installation of the software were very easy and straightforward.The Analysis feature makes it easy to analyze cross-data and we can pin to the focus period.Very useful for finding out how the system responds to load, stress, and normal situations, as well as benchmarking with other industry competitors. It also improved our response time, memory delegation, and CPU delegation. In addition, we used LoadRunner to optimize our database and website.

The most valuable feature is having load generators in countries where we don’t have access to them.Keeping up with DevOps, thus the best feature of StormRunner is that we don't have to build and maintain infrastructure anymore.It's fast, easy to use, has a user-friendly UI, and you can split users.

Cons
The debugging capability should be improved.I would like to have better support for adding more users per load generator.The solution uses a lot of memory and then it dies. It's difficult to work with the solution sometimes when you run a scenario it dies. They need to make the solution lighter somehow.The solution needs to reduce its pricing. Right now, it's quite expensive.I guess scalability becomes a problem when you use things like TruClients.Sometimes we are not be able to click on some of the buttons due to the screen mismatching and compatibility issues.The price of this solution should be cheaper.There is room for improvement of the pilot processing, the dump analysis, and forwarding results based on the dump analysis. We have a generator, root controller, different agents, and an analyzer, so all of these are very important when it comes to LoadRunner.

An area for improvement is analytics on why response times are slow from certain countries.There is a steep learning curve for the product, too.It doesn't provide custom reports. You can only use the default reports which contain irrelevant data or is missing data that we need.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing fees are based on the number of users.I don't know the licensing cost, but I think that you would get a discount for normal usage. I think there are different yearly options for different types of usage. It is not only how many users, but also whether it is shareable or not and other criteria involved in each feature. There are additional fees for the users and hardware linked to the processing.

The pricing is very reasonable and the licensing is straightforward.
