Introducing LoadRunner

Welcome to LoadRunner and the LoadRunner Help Center.

LoadRunner's load testing solution enables you to test the performance of diverse application types, and to identify and resolve issues before applications go live.

LoadRunner components

LoadRunner contains the following components:
VuGen: Captures end-user business processes and creates an automated performance testing script, also known as a Vuser script.
Controller: Organizes, drives, manages, and monitors the load test.
Analysis: Helps you view, dissect, and compare the results of the load tests.

The scripts created with VuGen can be used with a number of other Micro Focus products, such as StormRunner Load Load, Business Process Monitor, and more. For details, see Introducing Virtual User Generator.
