Application load testing tool that detects bottlenecks thus providing an accurate picture of end-to-end system performance

Tool Information

Introduction

Tool Summary

HP LoadRunner is an automated performance and test automation product for application load testing: examining system behaviour and performance, while generating actual load. A software testing tool, HP LoadRunner works by creating virtual users who take the place of real users' operating client software, such as Internet Explorer, sending requests using the HTTP protocol to IIS or Apache web servers. HP LoadRunner can simulate thousands of concurrent users to put the application through the rigors of real-life user loads, while collecting information from key infrastructure components (Web servers, database servers etc.) The results can then be analyzed in detail to explore the reasons for particular behavior. 

LoadRunner contains the following components:

  •  VuGen:Captures end-user business processes and creates an automated performance testing script, also known as a Vuser script.
  •  Controller:Organizes, drives, manages, and monitors the load test.
  •  Analysis:Helps you view, dissect, and compare the results of the load tests.

Performance testing tools, commercial or open source, have a place in everyone's "toolbox". At our dev shop we use JMeter and Radview WebLoad. We started out using HP's LoadRunner since the sale rep's demo and trial worked out well. We ran into problems when it came to technical support. Like most development shops there is limited time, everything needs to be done yesterday (at least from the client's perspective). Long response times, days, and incomplete responses drove my QA team to the point of frustration. One of our new hires asked us why we weren't using RadView and that's when we started looking into it. We made the switch a few year ago and have been happy ever since. This isn't to say that LoadRunner is bad, it isn't. It just didn't meet our shop's fast paced support needs, your mileage my vary.
