HP LoadRunner software is cost-effective software for performance validation. Generate load. Diagnose problems. Deploy with high quality.

HP LoadRunner supports performance testing for a wide range of application environments and protocols, including web, SOA and web services, Ajax, RDP, database, legacy, Citrix, Java, .NET and all major ERP and CRM applications, including PeopleSoft, Oracle, SAP and Siebel. HP LoadRunner has more than 40 non-intrusive monitors tailored for these systems and provides diagnostics for J2EE, .NET, Siebel, Oracle and SAP. HP LoadRunner offers one set of rules for all your enterprise load testing requirements.

HP LoadRunner reduces the script-creation process to a few simple mouse clicks. This feature, click and script, lets you record scripts at the user-interface level by clicking on screens for automatic script generation, making the scripting process easier. It automatically captures the most valuable scripting information to create succinct, visually intuitive and self-explanatory scripts, reducing scripting time and maintenance by an average of 80 percent. These scripts are also easier to maintain, allowing you to look at the scripts, quickly see what is happening in each statement and focus on the elements to modify for another test.

Product Reviews
Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by LoadRunner is the best for those who need a full blown product, or a diverse range of protocols to be tested Valuable Features:The capabilities and flexibility of the Controller, the ability to monitor the systems under test, and the comprehensive results Analysis which saves a great deal of time.Use of Solution:14yearsDeployment Issues:LoadRunner generally deploys without issues.Stability Issues:Its a complex product and there are usually a few bugs in the point zero releases, it is generally pretty reliable.Sometimes the controller can crash, this is usually after opening and closing several scenarios without closing the controller. Closing the controller after a couple of scenarios opened will avoid the problem.Scalability Issues:Scalability is great, I have personally used LoadRunner with up to 72,000 virtual users, and 35 load generators.Customer Service:I don't have recent experience with HPE customer service.Technical Support:I don't have recent experience with HPE tech support.Previous Solutions:I started performance testing with LoadRunner and I'm still using it. I have used other tools, but its the best all rounder.Initial Setup:Initial setup is straightforward as LoadRunner is pretty much standalone and just needs connectivity to the system under test.Implementation Team:I generally implement it myself.Cost and Licensing Advice:The cost depends greatly on the needs of the testing engagement.The free community licence (permanent for 50 VUsers) available from Version 12 is very useful. For small tests this is sufficient and there is no licence cost to use it.The community licence is excellent for training as well, you get full functionality for as long as you like.Other Solutions Considered:NoOther Advice:Take a good look at your requirements, LoadRunner is the best for those who need a full blown product, or a diverse range of protocols to be tested. However not everyone needs this. There are other products that do parts of what LoadRunner does just as well and cheaper.Because LoadRunner is so widely used, there are many people with LoadRunner experience available, it will be harder to find experience in an alternative tool.There are cheaper and free alternatives, but these generally take longer to set up and use. Often the software licence costs are far less than the professional services cost for a performance testing engagement. The higher cost of a LoadRunner licence will be offset by time saved by using it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. December 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by We also looked at open source solutions before choosing HP. Valuable Features:* Configuration* Scripting technology* Results* Integrations with disruptive technologies like network virtualization, service virtualizationImprovements to My Organization:Performance improvementCapacity PlanningMemory LeaksBottlenecksUse of Solution:I've used it for three years.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:No issues encountered.Customer Service:10/10, I'm very satisfied with them.Technical Support:They're excellent.Previous Solutions:I used jmeter and switched to HPE Load Runner, because the following features- Supports performance testing for a wide range of application environments and protocols.- TrueClient patented technology is embedded in the browser and provides interactive recording and scripting, dramatically reducing the amount of programming requiredInitial Setup:No issues encountered.ROI:Customer satisfaction.Cost and Licensing Advice:Try term (wide range of options) or perpetual, it depends on your business needs.Other Solutions Considered:We also looked at open source solutions.Other Advice:Use all the solution's features, and you will find the right answers for your performance and functional issues.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:HP Partner, specialist in ADLM solutions August 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cost effective performance validation tool Valuable Features:Powerful scripting tool to best record user actions programmatically. Flexible and versatile scripting engine to extend tests with success-failure checks, thus making testing more intelligent. Ramping of many concurrent users to make the most representative testing possible.Integration of external measurements in test scenario's. Extensive vendor documentation and help system included. Extensive experience and support on various fora, blogs and many other support resources. Good availability of expertise in the form of programmers and hardcore testers.Room for Improvement:Complexity. LoadRunner is not simple to learn by installing it and "doing it". Especially when using different data sources to do cross measurements of system performance. Performance testing with a tool like this requires planning and skilled resources. Fortunately these are easily acquired these days.Price. I've used LoadRunner for performance testing purposes for a number of years on various projects and I've always been impressed by the versatility and plain power of this testing tool. LoadRunner's scripting engine is very flexible and the fact that it's able to quickly and easily simulate hundreds of concurrent users makes it the performance testing tool of choice for years running. LR is constantly updated and improved to cope with a changing world.Use of Solution:10 yearsOther Advice:HP offers extensive documentation and support services to help its customer base. True, the product costs a few bucks more than the (open source) alternatives like Neoload, QA Load and others, but in my opinion you get a solid performance test in return (if properly executed of course).Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by It includes protocols which support our business requirements, such as Java, HTTP, and Citrix. Valuable Features:It's got a lot of protocols that support all our business requirements, such as Java, HTTP, and Citrix. It gives us one tool that supports all this technology.Improvements to My Organization:We don't have to work on another platform as we only have to learn one tool. There's a lot of information, help, and best practices available. It's a market-leading tool so there are lots of people with knowledgeable experience. Our employees are productive from day one.Because we're a telecommunications company with millions of subscribers, we run very high volume tests for 24-48 hours. LoadRunner has been very, very stable during these tests and has gotten us results. It gives us expert diagnoses of our tests with very detailed, in-depth analyses.Room for Improvement:We'd like for it to incorporate a tool for ordering module that would work with our proprietary in-house ordering module scripting protocol.Deployment Issues:We have no issues with deployment.Stability Issues:It's very stable.Scalability Issues:It scales very, very well.Technical Support:They're very good. We have issues, we contact them, and they help us solve the issues.Initial Setup:Setup was very straightforward. We installed, applied the licenses, and started using it.Other Solutions Considered:There is Neotys NeoLoad and SOASTA CloudTest, but LoadRunner is the best.Other Advice:I would definitely recommend using LoadRunner. Use the latest two client protocols for object scripting.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. December 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by It allows us the ability to simulate multiple uses at the same time. Valuable Features:The most valuable feature of LoadRunner is its ability to simulate multiple uses at the same time. That's the most important thing and the primary reason I use it.Improvements to My Organization:I don't believe that there are any other good tools for performance testing. It's either use LoadRunner for performance testing or don't do performance testing at all.Room for Improvement:We have a lot of issues right now with the Citrix client, so this should be improved.Deployment Issues:Deployment has been fine.Stability Issues:We've had no issues with stability.Scalability Issues:Scalability is not that important for LoadRunner since we don't have many people working on it at the same time.Technical Support:Quite good, though sometimes it depends on who you’re dealing with. Sometimes you have bad luck and get a guy who doesn't know much about it, is new, or is in training, but most of the time technical support is fine.Initial Setup:It was rather easy and you can do it yourself.Other Solutions Considered:For functional testing, we look for alternatives sometimes, especially for the execution part.Other Advice:I don't think there's a better product for all systems.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by It supports Citrix and SAP protocols, which is very helpful for our clients to understand bottlenecks if there are any on their network, though it should support GWT and mobile testing. Valuable Features:* It allows you to create your own customized code.* It provides an analysis report after running a test scenario.* It supports maximum protocols.* It's user-friendly.Improvements to My Organization:It generates reports in a format that's very easy to understand for both our own internal use and other audiences. It supports Citrix and SAP protocols, which is very helpful for our clients to understand bottlenecks if there are any on their network.Room for Improvement:It should support GWT and mobile testing, including network virtualization.Use of Solution:I've used it for eight years.Deployment Issues:We didn't encounter any issues during deployment.Stability Issues:We haven't encountered any stability issues.Scalability Issues:We haven't encountered any issues while scaling.Customer Service:I'd say that customer service is not good.Technical Support:Technical support is also not good.Previous Solutions:I used NeoLoad, but it does not support Citrix, so we chose LoadRunner.Initial Setup:Initial setup was not that difficult.Implementation Team:We did the implementation through an in-house team.My advice is for you to have a load generator machine that has a good configuration for handling large volumes of users.Cost and Licensing Advice:It is very costly, but LoadRunner works perfectly. It fits our needs in the way we use it, but you should make sure your use justifies the cost.Other Advice:We have only web-based services, mobile testing in scope, and the user load is maximum 1000, so we could have used NeoLoad, but there were lots of other factors in switching.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by The test recorder is amongst the best recorders I’ve tried, but it needs a more stable virtual-user generator. Valuable Features:* The analysis tool* The test recorder, and it is among the best recorders I’ve triedImprovements to My Organization:It’s been able to cut our pre- and post-test work (script recording time and analysis), therefore we’ve been able to test more.Room for Improvement:A more stable virtual-user generator. It needs less crashes and correlation bugs, etc.Use of Solution:I've used it for two years.Stability Issues:The virtual user generator has had a few stability issues, like crashes when debugging tests and correlating.Technical Support:A discussion with the support is almost always required, however you will receive help. 7/10Previous Solutions:No previous solution was used.Initial Setup:It was simple.Implementation Team:All tools have been implemented through an in-house team, but it hasn't always been straightforward (quite a few misunderstandings). Advice for implementing any performance testing tool is to talk to your performance tester, she/he will probably know best.Cost and Licensing Advice:It's expensive, but it delivers like no other tool, but you should do a thorough investigation first (sometimes you barely have any other choice, LoadRunner may be the only tool that works).Other Advice:In the Swedish/Nordic market, LoadRunner is the most commonly known tool among performance testers. But, overall advice, talk and listen to your performance tester/s they usually prefer a specific tool, and know the different strengths and weaknesses of some tools.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
