HP LoadRunner 11.5 Essentials

This five-day course introduces students to LoadRunner 11.5. The course covers topics about the Virtual User Generator (VuGen), Controller, and Analysis tools. It also includes a final one day, hands-on lab. This course is designed to give you a foundation in basic load testing tasks. You create and run load test scenarios using the Controller. The Analysis tool is used to analyze load test results. You learn to work with the graphs to display data after a test is executed. The hands-on labs are designed to provide you with the knowledge necessary to create scripts in VuGen, execute scenarios in the Controller, and view the results in the Analysis tool.

At the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the components of LoadRunner
  • Record scripts in the web environment using VuGen
  • Measure steps and business processes using transactions
  • Parameterize scripts to vary user input data
  • Customize scripts by adding VuGen and basic C functions
  • Correlate scripts to process server-generated data
  • Correlate the script using new correlation studio that hosts all correlation functionality in one place: record-based correlations, replay-based correlations, correlation rules and correlation from snapshot
  • Organize and manipulate multiple VuGen scripts packaged under a Solution Explorer, such as Action, Parameters, Run-time settings, Script Replay, and External Files, 
  • Describe the features of the new custom VuGen layout
  • Apply the workflow recommended for creating a basic scenario
  • Assign scripts, run-time settings, performance monitors, load generators, and users to a scenario based on your load testing goals
  • Load test your application by executing a scenario
  • Use the Analysis tool to view the results of a scenario
  • Quality Assurance and Performance Engineers
  • Users of LoadRunner who need to create scripts to load test their web applications
  • Executives involved in any aspect of the load testing process

Working knowledge of:

  • Windows
  • Web sites and browsers
  • Fundamental understanding of C programming is helpful, but not required
