Prashant SarswatHead - Testing Centre of Excellence at NIIT Technologies Limited
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This product is better oriented to large, enterprise-oriented organizations."
"The solution is a very user-friendly tool, especially when you compare it to a competitor like BlazeMeter."
"This is a product that has a lot of capabilities and is the most mature tool of its kind in the market."
"The most valuable part of the product is the way you can scale the basic testing easily."
"Micro Focus LoadRunner Enterprise Is very user-friendly."
"I think the number one feature everybody likes is the capability to easily generate virtual users as well as the reporting."
"LoadRunner is a very systematic tool for anyone to use. Even someone who is actually a first time user of LoadRunner can actually get a lot of benefit out of the tool."
"It provides clients with an understanding of application and system performance."
"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 Analysis feature makes it easy to analyze cross-data and we can pin to the focus period."
"The initial setup and installation of the software were very easy and straightforward."
"The solution is quite stable."
"The load testing, reporting, and scripting features are all valuable features."
"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."
"While the stability is generally good, there are a few strange issues that crop up unexpectedly which affect consistent use of the product."
"The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools."
"The TruClient protocol works well but it takes a lot of memory to run those tests, which is something that can be improved."
"Third-party product integrations could be a little more slickly handled."
"The reporting has room for improvement."
"It's not that popular on the cloud."
"If they can make LoadRunner more comprehensive, it would really help."
"Support for Microsoft Dynamics needs improvement."
"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."
"The price of this solution should be cheaper."
"Sometimes we are not be able to click on some of the buttons due to the screen mismatching and compatibility issues."
"I guess scalability becomes a problem when you use things like TruClients."
"The solution needs to reduce its pricing. Right now, it's quite expensive."
"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."
"It is a bit expensive, especially for smaller organizations, but over-all it can save you money."
"The price is okay. You're able to buy it, as opposed to paying for a full year."
"They have a much more practical pricing model now."
"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 licensing fees are based on the number of users."
"It is competing with other products that may cost significantly less or may be available as open-source. Because of that it is relatively expensive."
"LoadRunner Professional is an expensive product."
"This is not a cheap product."
"There is a licensing cost that is expensive."
