We can scale it up at any point in time because we can get a distributor. We can add variants, controllers, claims, and analyzers, so it will support different types of protocols. We just created load scenarios and we will load the scenarios to a number of virtual users. For example, we can load around 1,000 users for each scenario. In abnormal conditions, we could have 10,000 users. Also, loading them depends upon the role alias and role controller's configuration. The size of staff required for deployment and maintenance depends upon what application and how many load scenarios you want to do, as well as the complexity of your application, how much hardware you have, and how much software support you have. All of those things will come into the picture. They would be different types of users like a read-only user, a write-only user, etc. We use JMeter and LoadRunner together: When we're stress testing and for service or load testing we use JMeter, while we use LoadRunner for basic load testing. We keep it like that but we can see how that mitigation works and the application is also for internal users, so we consider what it does there and we can do a lot of those things. View full review »

In terms of driving, LoadRunner is at a level that is a little riddled but otherwise, it's been a good thing. LoadRunner has the kind of features that are much more advanced. The comparison is IIS & NeoLoad. It is very scalable. View full review »

LoadRunner is scalable, although there are some limitations that depend on the application type. That is where you need to scale by adding more load generators. We have approximately ten people who are using LoadRunner in the company. View full review »

I guess scalability becomes a problem when you use things like TruClients. It eats lots of memory, so usually, I have two or three low generators while I have the one controller. We have had some problems with when we are using a BPM system. In the beginning, it was quite difficult when we changed to this other system and we wanted to connect to the home computer. We have about 12 users, mostly testers, working on the solution currently. Then we have two people working in our performance center. View full review »

We have about 200 users and the scalability is good so far. We don't plan to increase our usage so I am not sure how scalable it will be with more users. View full review »

It is easier to scale when you have the online, cloud option. We probably have about 200 users and in the future, we may increase our usage. View full review »

The solution is scalable. I don't see a problem with scaling, because you can schedule multiple instances. View full review »
