Micro Focus LoadRunner Professional Room for Improvement

QA Manager at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
There is room for improvement of the pilot processing 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. LoadRunner also has to create a low-cost version that supports simpler testing and only some of the simple features would be included. This would allow people to use LoadRunner and get support from LoadRunner in terms of application testing. It is a principle that if people will get to use LoadRunner for free, LoadRunner will get more business and major payback. I would rate it 6 out of 10, because LoadRunner is a vast thing, starting from those scenarios and then getting more into users, putting more points, correlation, load testing, and benchmarking. I have this part and hope it works well with the system. All of this is very complex. It takes a long time to learn the system well. View full review »

If they can make LoadRunner more comprehensive, it would really help. My main recommendations for improvement for LoadRunner are: * It would be good if LoadRunner can categorize the different transactions based on the time taken to do the test, against the transactions first. * The reports should be a little more comprehensive, more detailed. * There should be a way to use the default monitoring tool integrated with LoadRunner. For example, if I have to look for monitoring I have to always integrate an extending tool to LoadRunner and then monitor my task. If LoadRunner is not driving and they can afford to have their own monitoring enabled, that would help. The LoadRunner report also needs more information other than the straightforward notes, like response time. View full review »

One of the problems with LoadRunner was always outside sharing. However, now that they are offering a cloud version, this may already work well. The infrastructure support can be improved because there are a lot of limitations with the hardware that you can use. I would like to have better support for adding more users per load generator.

Sometimes I have problems when I want to record a script if the application is a little special, like the login part. I think the TruClient works well and they are developing new things there all the time. So it's getting better. I would like to see an easier way to move things from SoapUI to the same addressed services and postman or something like that. Because the developers will use the other products and then the website and then load them at no cost. So if it was just one step to move from one system to another it would be a great improvement.

Currently the solution doesn't have recording options or sometimes we're not be able to see the recording options. So that needs to improve. I also think the solution should have more screen compatibility, even if you're using a different operating system like Windows 10, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. Sometimes we find that there is a difference between the desktop screen and the laptop screen. So, it should be compatible for both screens. View full review »

The debugging capability is difficult to use and should be improved. This is one area where some of the other products we use are better. View full review »

Pricing should be lowered on the solution. 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. If the correlation can be adjusted so that it's a dynamic correlation, it could be a little bit better and it would help a lot of users. View full review »

The solution needs to reduce its pricing. Right now, it's quite expensive. The solution should offer more monitoring features. View full review »
