The Lamborghini of Performance Testing

  • June 23, 2022
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
* The number of supported protocols for testing, there is literary support for testing all kinds of applications
* Easy for beginners to learn, Trueclient Web protocol with recording by point and click on Web makes it fast to create scripts
* the types of testing supported, you can even use the product to do API testing instead of using Postman
* The product bundle is amazing, by buying the product today it includes SiteScope which is the most powerful monitoring solution and also Service Virtalization (7 services) which you can use to mimic missing test systems.
* Thw powerful Controller software which by easy you can create scenarios to mimic real world use case of load towards a system + the ability to monitor and control an ongoing test.
* The analytics tool of which you can dive deep into the result and find root causes for bad performance and the great ability to create reports.

I highly recommend this product
What do you dislike?
* Sometimea there are small bugs in the VuGen script error where it throws compilation errors first time and then you compile the same and it works.
* Some people thinks it hard to learn, but becoming a senior expert in Prrformanxe Testing takes a lot of experience, a single to does not make you an expert.
* In some project they want to use Open Source software instead to safe money, but Loadrunner now comes with a community edition which you can use, there can with a purchase of the product be tough for some projects to fully understand the license model and what options to pick.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
* It has solved all my challenges for performance and non-functional testing since I started using the product in 2003.
* It has helped me in over 50 projects to validate the SLA prior to go live in production, has always found issues in each project which by shift left has saves all companies tons of money and potential badwill by customer and employees.

What do you like best?
The ease with which we can do the enhancement like correlation and parameterisation, Its very easy as compared to the other tools like Jmeter, Soasta
What do you dislike?
All the features are good, only you need a big screen to debug as there are multiple tabs available
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We are doing Performance testing of SFDC application where loadrunner is helping us to test the application with user load, with which we are helping developers to optimise their code if we are seeing anything degrade
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Yes, go to tool for load testing

  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Best suited for large workloads, trusted by testing community for many years
What do you dislike?
The price can be aligned to more competitive for users as well more flexible to new days software scenario and lightweigts.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Performance testing of Cloud and on promise applications having very aggressive TPS(Transaction Per Second) SLA. With leveraging this tool for performance testing, we can gauge and refactor our application to meet the SLA.

What do you like best?
Lots of protocols support, easy to use, easy reporting , perfect graphical representation with the Analysis feature, user interface is much better than similar tools.
What do you dislike?
Expensive as compared to other tools in the market, TruClient protocol - browsers needs to improve (does not work as intended always)
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We use MF LoadRunner for all the end to end testing & optimization of various projects in the organization & it definitely has helped us out in getting to know how the systems are going to respond under load or stress situations.

Performance testing tool with great breadth of support and credibility.

  • June 03, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Good use of human time. No peer tool which supports SQL Server, Oracle,Java, Web etc. Identify bottlenecks of hardware, software, infrastructure, memory etc using good analysis window for response time and throughput. Separation of script, generator, controller and agents. Set ramp up and ramp down strategy as needed.Agent can do things like IP spoofing to make look like load is coming from diff machines. Checkpoints can be image or text. Rendezvous points instruct users to wait during test execution for other users in order to perform the tasks simultaneously. Love that!
What do you dislike?
Tool is not open source and expensive. Also Vuser scripts saved in C which is case sensitive. You need to be really cognizant about co-relations planned to be used. Protocol advisor could have been more helpful. Also make sure caching is disabled while running tests. Configuration is little tough to figure out.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Testing performance of web applications and RESTAPIs. Great support as said earlier. Fantastic ways to parameterize your inputs and see analysis of response time distribution. VuGen is UI independent and focuses on HTTP requests only. Capability to add user data points and regenerate code. Controller helps to add think time, delays etc. Most favorite part is load simulated from other machines, throttling etc Also the part where you can simulate browser like environment by adding proxies and cookies is fantastic in my opinion. Analysis engine shows response time distribution. It can also be run on public cloud infrastructures.Tightly coupled with HP-ALM and can also import scripts from other tools like Jmeter.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Nice tool to conduct performance testing and benchmark your other tools. Although learning curve is not steep but the pricing curve is. As said need to be aware of relations while using record playback feature. Also regularly use rendezvous and think statements. Also make sure to add regular comments in code in order for maintainability. Correlation is capture output from prv step and use it as input.

  • September 03, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Tool works for all types of application like Web, SAP, DBMS, AJAX, Mail server etc. and the reporting is best in the market. Although there are freeware tools like Jmeter but all those needs lots of customisation
What do you dislike?
Performance center hangs often and need to close and start freshly, its not a system issue. Some are known bug in older version
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Doing performance testing of any application.

Able to simulate proper load like a real world with help of runtime and schedular settings of the Vugen
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Its best in the industry

What do you like best?
The user interface is amazingly intuitive and easy to learn. Great report data tools for the dashboard.

Load testing our in house applications
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Download a free sample and see for yourself just how easy this tool is to use.

Working on LoadRunner since 4 years

  • May 03, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The ability to manage all the phases of performance testing and ease to maintain scripts in loadrunner and all types of applications support is available in loadrunner. The Analysis provided by loadrunner post completion of execution is the best and very much in detailed which helps resolve performance issues and bottleneck easily.
The ability to convert fiddler file into loadrunner is one of the best feature implemented in loadrunner.
What do you dislike?
sometimes loadrunner misses few request during recording a script which might leads to the script failure. Sometimes we faced issues while analyzing the results in loadrunner which leads to complete failure of test which is a more time consuming task.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Doing performance testing with loadrunner we solved SFDC based application. We recommended other teams too to use loadrunner for SFDC and othe cloud based applications.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Script enhancements facility should be similar to Loadrunner in other performance testing tools.

What do you like best?
Simple to utilize/learn interface. Numerous choices accessible to make the custom test contents and test situations. Wide assortment of conventions that covers dominant part of candidates types. All and every one of the a generally amazing device that meets all execution testing needs.
What do you dislike?
I can't think about any of the drawbacks. Be that as it may, if need to call attention to, I would state that test results should indicate data at each layer of engineering like reaction times at application, web, middleware, DB layer and so on
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Helping clients to get to the execution of uses before they are sent to generation. Ensure application/administrations are dependable and can withstand creation traffic and react inside characterized understandings.
