Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Micro Focus LoadRunner Enterprise.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
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 would be nice to know how much GPU memory we are using because the data points are not there or it's hard to read. Also, it would nice to know what the network saturation levels are. It doesn't do that, although that is not what it was designed to do. We use it with another tool that can gather that information and provide us with the data points.
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 not user-friendly when compared to BlazeMeter. They need to improve their cloud offering in order to compete. It also shouldn't be a standalone tool.
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 without the error the second time. So you just close the application test and open it again, and then it is okay. So that is quite confusing if you are new to the product, but you do not care about the inconvenience or even notice it after using the tool for a while. It does not seem very professional and it is really a buggy behavior that should be fixed. One feature I would like to see included in the next release of Performance Center would be to be able to run more fluidly with True Client so you could put more virtual users in Performance Center. That would help. I'm not sure how easy it is to compile something like that, but it would be valuable.
Some features could sometimes disappear without reason. It's extremely recommended to take time to evaluates newer versions before upgrading.
