Expected Duration
72 minutes

Description
Performance testing is a crucial part of all stages of a software product life cycle as it ensures that systems are provided that meet business requirements. HP LoadRunner is load-testing software that provides end-to-end system performance measurement under load. This course provides an overview of performance testing and LoadRunner, including the installation of the software components. The Virtual User Generator or VuGen component of HP LoadRunner enables you to create Vuser scripts to emulate real-world business processes. In this course, you will learn about creating and recording scripts for specific protocols in addition to how to use the Protocol Advisor to select scripts and how to replay and debug scripts. This course can be used as part of preparation for the HP LoadRunner 12.x Software exam, HPO-M103, to obtain the HP ATP – LoadRunner v12 certification.
