Load Runner

6 Oct
Performance testing is the most common strategy to both quantify and
reduce this risk to a business. Automated load testing with HP LoadRunner
is an essential part of the application deployment process.

A well-constructed performance test answers questions such as:

  • Does the application respond quickly enough for the intended users?
  • Will the application handle the expected user load and beyond?
  • Will the application handle the number of transactions required by the
  • business?
  • Is the application stable under expected and unexpected user loads?
