Application Load Testing: Micro Focus LoadRunner

Whether your organization is developing the latest in web and mobile technologies, implementing a custom ERP or CRM system, or managing a legacy system, performance is key. Systems need to be more than just accessible; they need to work at scale, from dozens to hundreds of users at a time. But testing for such loads can be daunting, particularly if your app runs across a mix of environments or integrates with multiple tools and services.

Load testing today’s complex applications requires a sound strategy and an automated testing solution.

LoadRunnerA comprehensive load testing solution not only tests system behavior and scalability, but also identifies bottlenecks and issues between related systems. Response time, reliability and resource usage are key indicators of performance issues. And in today’s rapid development environments, automation is key. A robust load testing solution allows test teams to run high-scale tests with minimal personnel and hardware on a mix of environments, with advanced monitoring and analysis.

To help organizations automate their load testing initiatives, Orasi has partnered with Micro Focus to offer LoadRunner.
