IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Micro Focus LoadRunner Cloud Primary Use Case

I have been using it to analyze the performance of various enterprise systems like SAP, web applications, Oracle Labs, and mobile app applications as well. The objective of the performance testing is to assess the system and whether it can withstand an actual load.

It is all about load testing. We have to do a lot of load testing in our IT environment. In the investment banking space, you do a lot of end-to-end endurance testing, to see how to benchmark performance based on resources and the CPU memory. So, we will have to benchmark the performance based on trade volumes. Trade volumes are the basic KPI.

Endurance testing needs to be done to see how many trades can be pumped in my environment. I do endurance testing.

We use a warehouse management system, my company is like a Dutch Amazon. We use LoadRunner to performance test the warehouse management system for peak load. So if Valentine's Day, Christmas, or whatever comes up, we try to run all functional loads through LoadRunner Cloud and make sure the peak count can be handled by the WMS. We use it almost daily. We have peak periods where the testing will increase, but nowadays it's so busy that throughout the year, it's almost the same. It's the same high load every day and we're testing continuously.

The amount of load on the system wasn't that large a couple of years ago for us to test. So the business case for performance testing wasn't pointing to investing in it, but now we have such huge, increasing numbers and increasing load that it's worthwhile setting up a structured and automated performance test and to invest in something like LoadRunner Cloud.

We use the cloud. The controllers and the dashboard servers are in the Micro Focus cloud. But we use our own load generators, which are on-premise. So we use a hybrid setup.

We use LoadRunner Cloud for functional testing, where we can log in online using the portal.

Our primary use case is load testing, where we can simulate a scenario with more than 100 users accessing the system at the same time. This shows us things such as the performance of the system and how it reacts when multiple people are using it.
