We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is that you can create an infrastructure on-demand and do performance testing with it."
"The fact that the solution supports multiple protocols such as open source, VuGen, TruWeb, TruClient, and SAP is very important because these protocols help us to concentrate on what is really needed to produce performance tests. If something is not supported, you have to use other tools or find other ways of assimilating loads."
"The most valuable feature is that we do not have to accommodate the load-testing infrastructure in our own data center."
"The record and playback feature is the most valuable feature. It's all driven by the script, so it's a script-based tool where the background tracing starts. Java's background process does a lot of tracing. The process starts in the background. It sees what peaks of volumes that the process can handle. It's easy to use because it's script based, record, and playback. I"
"The TruClient feature is the most valuable for us. An application with testing can only be scripted using TruClient, so it's part web-based, but it also has its own protocol combined with HTTP and HTML. So many other tools do not recognize this specific proprietary protocol. Using TruClient, we can still create scripts that cover everything that we need to cover."
"The usability and ability to integrate with other solutions is quite good. When I use it in on Azure, then Red Hat is the most likely solution I use. When I use AWS, then I tend to use Lambda functions. In either case, it works well and you can use it either way."
"The solution can handle a huge amount of workloads, it's quite scalable."
"I think that analytics is very good and that the analytics features are very powerful."
"It has good protocol coverage."
"What we like the most is that it integrates with UC."
"The most important feature for us is that it supports a lot of protocols because we support all of them, including HTTP, FTP, mainframe, and others."
"Paramterization and correlation are important features."
"The most useful aspect of the solution is that it provides agents in different geographic locations."
"The reporting mechanism is a valuable feature that generates good reports."
"Reporting and analysis need improvement. Compared to the old school LoadRunner Windows application, the reporting and analysis are mediocre in LoadRunner Cloud."
"There are three modules in the system that are different products packaged into one, and they can sometimes be difficult to figure out, so they should be better integrated with each other."
"We are trying to put it into a complete CI/CD pipeline, but there are still some challenges when you try to run it through different protocols. The challenges are around how you can containerize applications. There are some limitations to some protocols, such as desktop. And when it comes to database testing, there are some things that we can't do through CI/CD."
"I don't know of any features that should be added. The solution isn't lacking anything at this point."
"I would like for there to be better integration with other tools so that when you do load testing you can also do a security check."
"Improvements to the reporting would be good."
"The debugging capability should be improved."
"The solution is very costly. The cost is very high, especially considering a lot of other resources are available now and they are less expensive. For a small organization, it is very difficult to sustain the costs involved in having the solution or the related fees"
"We are going to continue to use the product in the future, I recommend this product. However, those who are looking for only REST-based on the API, I would recommend some other tool because of the cost. There are others available on the market."
"I would like to see better-licensing costs."
"The product is pretty heavy and should be more lightweight."
"I would like to have better support for adding more users per load generator."
"Licensing costs could be reduced."
"The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using."
"We make use of virtual user hours. We buy time in the LoadRunner Cloud. It costs around $80,000."
"There is no monthly or yearly cost but rather, the fees are based on the amount of traffic that you use."
"LoadRunner Professional is an expensive product."
"It is competing with other products that may cost significantly less or may be available as open-source. Because of that it is relatively expensive."
"There is a licensing cost that is expensive."
"The licensing fees are based on the number of users."
"This is not a cheap product."
