How to Interpret Loadrunner Results

LoadRunner Tutorial: Transforming LoadRunner Data into Information and Action This tutorial shows you how to extract the data out of LoadRunner and put it into a database where it can be easily queried for analysis. Web applications need to support thousands of users simultaneously. Rather than going live and hoping for the best, HP's LoadRunner can simulate hundreds or thousands of concurrent users. After execution of the script, LoadRunner is able generate graphs and reports to analyze and assess the performance of the application under various load scenarios, but going beyond the standard reports for detailed analysis sometimes requires [...]

Performance Testing Error Analysis

Performance Testing-Analyzing Error Messages Analyzing performance test results one of the most important elements of performance testing. Results must be interpreted in light of the test’s objectives or they will have little meaning. When you find a potential bottleneck, your next step is to examine why and when. In doing so, you may run into many error messages. This whitepaper discusses some common error messages in LoadRunner and how to interpret them.

Loadrunner – How to Use Correlation

LoadRunner Tutorial: Using Correlation to Troubleshoot Errors When you record a session using LoadRunner and then execute it, you have probably encountered errors such as “The same user can not login twice. “ or “ One user can only poll once”. When this happens, this basically blocks your performance test and stops you from moving forward. Everyone encounters these types of problems and there are numerous ways to troubleshoot them. One such method is using correlation. This whitepaper explains both manual and auto, and discusses how to use correlation when troubleshooting loadrunner scripts.
