Diploma in HP LoadRunner

This free online course teaches how to test applications and measure performance under load testing with HP LoadRunner.

Publisher: Pavan Lalwani
LoadRunner from Micro Focus is a software testing tool. This course will teach you about HP LoadRunner and its features. We will discuss the web tours sample application, parameterization and checkpoints in detail. We will study what Virtual User Generator (VuGen) is and why you use it in conjunction with HP LoadRunner. Along with this, you will explore controller functions, analysis and the correlations available.

To start this course, you will need to download HP LoadRunner. The first section deals with downloading and running the application to ensure you are installing the correct program. We will show you how to extract the zip file and install all the required packages for this application. Next, we will introduce you to the web tours sample application and its uses, which is also a product of HP. This topic will also help you learn how this application works and how to use LoadRunner as a solution for performance testing before describing what VuGen is and why we need this to run alongside HP LoadRunner. Finally, you will explore creating your first script and recording the sample application using VuGen. This course will help you learn how to set up HTML based and URL based recording options in LoadRunner. We will teach you to set up script recording settings in HP LoadRunner.

Then, we will look at transactions used to measure the time between two or more steps in recording and executing scripts. You will study the multiple ways of transaction usage in scripts and examine the concept of parameterization and how we use this in HP LoadRunner. You will study the different steps involved in parameterization and its benefits. We describe the differences between the controller and VuGen. In addition to this, this course will help you learn about the functions of the controller in HP LoadRunner. We discuss how to set up run time settings and rendezvous points in detail before studying analysis tools, the third component available in LoadRunner. You will also learn about the concept of correlation, how we can use correlation and the different types of correlation available in HP LoadRunner.

The last module dives into the exciting world of ordinal values and how to use these alongside correlation. We help you understand the correlation between dynamic and ordinal values and introduce you to integer and char values in LoadRunner. Then, you will practically investigate how to use string variables in C and LR. In addition to this, we will review the table, date and time type in parameterization. You will look closely at where and why we use date and time parameters in LoadRunner. Finally, we will inspect the parameterization setting, the different settings and features and its role in LoadRunner. This course is ideal for software developers who want to perform load testing for their applications or those studying in application and software development. So, why wait? Start this course today.
