What needs improvement?

One thing that always fails at our company is that after you have checked in an application then it usually crashes in some way. You get some strange error message. We found out you can open the test you have set up and usually, it works… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not quite sure about the exact pricing because I do not handle that part of the business, but I think the Performance Center is quite expensive. It is more expensive than LoadRunner, although I am not sure how many controllers you can… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are currently using 12.53 and we are trying to upgrade it to 12.63 but it looks like there's a problem with the upgrade. We would like to switch to take better advantage of some features that are currently difficult to work with. We used… more»

What other advice do I have?

The advice I would give to someone considering this product is that they should try LoadRunner first before they start using Performance Center — especially if it is a small company. They need to know and be able to compare LoadRunner to… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before we used Performance Center at all, we used LoadRunner (Corporate version, 50 licenses). But now we changed over almost entirely to Performance Center and we are phasing LoadRunner out. For a while, we were running both at the same… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the methodology they use for telling you how long the login times are, and what the load time is for each individual. The information that the report provides is very… more»

How has it helped my organization?

As a managed service organization, we have SLAs that we have to meet. If we don't meet those SLAs then the business suffers. They involve everything from load times to uptime, to how many users get… more»

What needs improvement?

When you are looking at what areas of the product have room for improvement, it depends on the various clients that you have and when the new operating systems come out. It can get interesting. It… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have license files. The license is paid by what they call man-days, which is calculated based on the number of users that are needed and by the number of days they are going to use it for. In the… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use Login VSI, as well as LoadRunner. We use both, mainly because of pricing.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure that you get someone who knows what they are doing before you get into it. I have learned that unless you put the time in at the beginning, it doesn't do the job. You have to learn how it… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution is a very user-friendly tool, especially when you compare it to a competitor like BlazeMeter. The custom meter is nice. It has a lot of features. When compared with BlazeMeter, I use the plain data. In the cloud after one year… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools. The stability in some of the latest versions has not been ideal. They need to work to fix it so that it becomes reliably stable again. The cloud solution of LoadRunner is… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution needs to reduce licensing costs. Its main competition, for example, is free to use, so I'm sure it's rather difficult to compete with it on a cost level.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I also use BlazeMeter. With LoadRunner, I use it with a paid tool, and since I am following the protocol, I need it to be easy to use. Whereas with BlazeMeter, we use it with JMeter. We need to use it sometimes if we want support. We need… more»

What other advice do I have?

We're partners with Micro Focus. I haven't found many products in this particular niche that have compared to JMeter and BlazeMeter tools. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I suggest other potential users review Micro Focus. If the… more»

What is most valuable?

The controller and analysis engine are a piece of cake, configuring the scenario and gathering results are the most important to me. From my 15 years experience, I measure that I spend only 5% of my time to script, other tasks are more consuming: understanding the business process, making the dataset relevant and reliable with workflow (with VTS for instance which is very great), finding how and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

For me, it's the best product for a performance team covering a large range of technologies and constraints.

What needs improvement?

Some features could sometimes disappear without reason. It's extremely recommended to take time to evaluates newer versions before upgrading.

What is most valuable?

* Analysis of results * Schedule of test * We can book load generators. * We can choose LGs based on the required configuration. * IP Spoofing can be done using Performance Center.

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved our organizational performance. We are delivering fine performance results and performance recommendations using Performance Center.

What needs improvement?

* Monitoring tools which are available in Performance Center. * More real-time monitoring should be available for the system under test. * Dashboard creation should be implemented, so we can get the results in a desired format.

What do you think of Micro Focus LoadRunner Enterprise?

I use Performance Center for PC testing. It is mostly user-friendly and usable, though tough to maintain from the infrastructure side.  It is also good for reporting purposes, which would be most familiar for QC and UFT users.
