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?

I think, for me, the most valuable part of the product is the way you can do the basic testing. You can create the test script and then simulate thousands of users very, very easily. Instead of having to have lots-and-lots of systems that would emulate users, you just needed a couple to emulate tens of thousands of users. So the scalability of LoadRunner while it was testing scalability is really… more »

What needs improvement?

To improve the product, I think the integrations could be a little bit more slick. It does handle a lot of great integrations, but then some of them can be a little bit clunky to implement. The integration with third-party tools needs to be stepped up a little bit. As far as other things that need to be added, it has changed quite a lot recently, and I have not had vast amounts of experience with… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice to people considering LoadRunner is that if you are going to use the product, use it as part of your everyday application development lifecycle. Do not just use it right at the end, because it gives you some great insights during the development phase as well as at the end. You will end up writing cleaner application code with it. So bake the use of LoadRunner into your full application… more »

What is most valuable?

Micro Focus LoadRunner Enterprise Is very user-friendly.

What needs improvement?

The reporting has room for improvement.

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

The price is okay. You're able to buy it, as opposed to paying for a full year. You can just on-demand purchase it for your users for a day or two, which is nice in an MSP business like mine. If I need to use it for separate clients, I… more »

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

We deployed three different solutions. One of them was free from VMware and the other one was Login PSI. We didn't really switch, it's just different feature sets we're looking for or methodology we want to use; whether or not the client… more »

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you know what your use case is before you buy it. On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of nine. It's very good at doing what it needs to do. I think that the reporting needs a little bit of work, but… 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?

This is a product that has a lot of capabilities and is the most mature tool of its kind in the market.

What needs improvement?

In the DevOps model, performance testing has become a bottleneck. This is because, after the completion of a sprint, people are in a hurry to send it to production but it first needs performance testing. Whenever there is a code change, it takes a lot of time to rescript and debug the script. The… more »

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

This is the only tool that I have used for performance testing. It is the tool that I use most of the time in my role.

What other advice do I have?

When it comes to organization, people compare automation testing with performance testing. Automation testing is something that is very easily integrated within an agile and faster delivery framework. The scripting in automation testing is robust because it is GUI-based. When it comes to performance… 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.
