What’s New in 11.0?
HP LoadRunner
The market leading solution for performance validation
Enables a consistent,
repeatable process to:
• Emulate production
workload to test a broad
range of applications
• Identify performance
bottlenecks, diagnose the
root cause of issues
• Optimize application
performance before
deployment
Reduce risk of
deploying systems that
do not meet performance
requirements
Reduce cost by
predicting scalability and
capacity and eliminating
over-deployment
Reduce time by
shortening test cycle
time. Accelerate delivery
of high quality
applications

HP Performance Center
The platform for enterprise-level performance testing
Globally accessible, centralized
platform that enables consistent,
repeatable processes for:
• Test planning, scheduling, execution
and reporting across multiple
concurrent projects and multiple
people
• Defining performance
requirements, tracking coverage
and ensuring traceability to defects
• Monitoring, analysis and
diagnostics to identify and
eliminate performance bottlenecks
• Reporting in real time as well as
trending across multiple tests
and iterations
Maximize productivity
and collaboration in
distributed teams
through 24x7 web
interface
Maximize utilization of
resources through
pooling and sharing of
licenses, hardware and
software.

Performance Center with HP ALM
The challenge: requirements & defects
Traceability and coverage
– Performance requirements defined ad-hoc
•
SLAs/SLOs (Service Level Agreements/Objectives)
– No reporting on requirements covered in tests
– No tracking from defects to see affected requirements
– Hard to track status & quality to business requirements

Benefits
– Save performance requirements (such as SLAs,
throughput requirements, etc) with the project
– Log and track issues as performance defects,
and assign defects to specific people to fix
– Complete traceability between performance
requirements and defects to show what defect is
affecting which requirement
– Show the exact status of a requirement at any
given time

they are testing against
– Need information to setup monitors
– Need information to track configuration changes
– Majority of problems occur due to infrastructure
configuration issues, not necessarily due to application
issues
