The LoadRunner Tuning Module allows customers to isolate and resolve system performance bottlenecks. Once the application has been stress tested using LoadRunner, the Tuning Module provides component test libraries and a knowledgebase that help users isolate and resolve performance bottlenecks.
WAN Emulation Support
This powerful feature set enables LoadRunner to quickly point out the effect of the wide area network (WAN) on application reliability, performance, and response time. Provided through technology from Shunra Software, this WAN emulation capability introduces testing for bandwidth limits, latency, network errors, and more to LoadRunner.
Sun ONE Studio4 IDE Add-in
Mercury Interactive and Sun Microsystems have worked together to integrate LoadRunner with the Sun ONE Studio4 add-in.
JBuilder for Java IDE Add-in
LoadRunner now works with Borland's JBuilder integrated development environment (IDE) to create powerful support for J2EE applications. This add-in enables LoadRunner users who create J2EE applications and services with JBuilder to create virtual users based on source code within a JBuilder project.
Native ICA Support for Citrix MetaFrame
LoadRunner now supports Citrix's Independent Computing Architecture (ICA) for the testing of applications being deployed with Citrix MetaFrame. This support is the first native ICA load testing solution of its kind, jointly developed with Citrix.
Web Transaction Breakdown Monitor for Isolating Performance Problems
Now you can more efficiently isolate performance problems within your architecture. LoadRunner's Web Transaction Breakdown Monitor splits end-to-end transaction response times for the client, network, and server and provides powerful drill-down capabilities.
Data Wizard for Data-Driven Testing
LoadRunner's Data Wizard enables you to quickly create data-driven tests and eliminate manual data manipulation. It connects directly to back-end database servers and imports desired data into test scripts.
Goal-Oriented Testing with AutoLoad
The new AutoLoad technology allows you to pre-define your testing objectives beyond the number of concurrent users to streamline the testing process.
Enterprise Java Bean Testing
By testing EJB components with LoadRunner, you can identify and solve problems during the early stages of application development. As a result, you can optimize performance before clients have been developed and thereby save time and resources.
With LoadRunner's XML support, you can quickly and easily view and manipulate XML data within the test scripts
