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 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.

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.

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.

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.
