Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Enables us to test most of the products and projects that we have across all the different technologies, without having to look at other tools.
The number of protocols that it supports, and especially, for example, when it talks about SAP GUI-based performance testing.
The ability to do multithreading. That's available in any performance testing tool, but the number of protocols that this particular tool supports has been very good.
The capabilities and flexibility of the Controller, the ability to monitor the systems under test, and the comprehensive results Analysis which saves a great deal of time.
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.
This solution is SaaS based so we can utilize cloud technology, which is less time consuming and saves a lot of of money.
The most valuable feature is the ability to configure browser settings for different operating systems and on different versions without the need to install every single version on each machine and to manage them.
We still have some issues with integration with things like SiteScope which, obviously, being another HPE product should be very straightforward, but there are always issues around that.
You should be able to use LoadRunner as a single platform. You should be able to have browser based access. You should be able to run enterprise tests.
If the support of the protocols was the same throughout the other protocols and it was there evenly, then I would rate the product higher.
More guidance on the use of the Tru Client protocol which is used for Web interfaces.
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.
Sometimes, you are utilizing one of the low generators, then all of a sudden if you discontinue from one project, it actually deletes the entire low generator.
I'd like to see more ability to dive more deeply into the configuration.
Pricing and Cost Advice
I would still consider LoadRunner as an expensive tool and you get a LoadRunner and the Performance Center.
The cost depends greatly on the needs of the testing engagement.
The pricing is very reasonable and the licensing is straightforward.
