Cons
"I would like to see better-licensing costs.""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 have better support for adding more users per load generator.""Licensing costs could be reduced.""The product is pretty heavy and should be more lightweight.""The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using.""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""The debugging capability should be improved."

"LoadRunner Professional is an expensive product.""There is a licensing cost that is expensive.""This is not a cheap product.""The licensing fees are based on the number of users.""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."
