Pros
The information that the reports provide is very valuable, it can tell you the number of users you have, how long it is taking for specific tasks, and how much memory you have.The solution is a very user-friendly tool, especially when you compare it to a competitor like BlazeMeter.This product is better oriented to large, enterprise-oriented organizations.

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.

Cons
It would be nice to know how much GPU memory we are using because the data points are not there or it's hard to read.The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools.While the stability is generally good, there are a few strange issues that crop up unexpectedly which affect consistent use of the product.

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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We license it as we need it. If we use it for one client, and only need it once a year, the licensing cost for 500 users would be approximately US $2.50 per day, per user, so approximately US $1250.00 per day.It is a bit expensive, especially for smaller organizations, but over-all it can save you money.

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.
