What is LoadRunner?

LoadRunner is an automated performance and test automation tool/product which is used to test system behavior and performance when given actual load. LoadRunner supports platforms Microsoft Windows and Linux (Load
Generator).LoadRunner was developed by Mercury Interactive Corporation. On November 2006, it formally became part of HP. Now it is considered as HP Load Runner.

LoadRunner has mainly three components:

VuGen(Virtual User Generator): VuGen enables you to record variety of Vuser types. The primary tool for creating the Vuser scripts is VuGen.Vuser replicates the action of real users working on your application. In real time scenario only one user works on your system whereas you can create multiple users to access your application at the same time using this process to perform the test. .USR is the file extension.

Controller (License based component): This is the place where we generate and run the scenarios. Using controller we can control all the Vsers in the scenario from a single workstation. If the client is having multiple projects, they can setup multiple controllers with multiple licenses. .lrs is the file extension

Analysis: This component is used to view and analyze the result and create the reports and graphs to provide it to the client..lra is the file extension Load testing is one of the software testing methods used to test/examine the behavior of a system when subject to both normal as well as extreme expected load conditions. When the load placed on the system is raised beyond normal
usage level, in order to test the system’s response at peak or very high loads, it is known as stress testing. Load testing is a type of non-functional testing. Load testing is sometimes referred to as endurance or longevity testing because it is so durable.

QA Online Training

Previously, even testing was performed by the  developers itself, as the demand for the quality of the product is increased and to avoid the
failures after the product is developed and manufactured, which can lead to great money loss as well as life loss in some cases. To overcome
it management has decided to perform testing from the scratch level. With this decision Software Testing has become a profession.

Quality Analyzer plays a vital role as there is no importance for the product without quality.  So testing the functionality and performance of the product has become vital in the product development life cycle. Testers are needed as
long as the products are developed.

The demand for the QA testers is huge and there are no specific pre-requisite for learning and pursuing a career in Software Testing. You need to have the strong determination and zeal to enter into software testing.

We are offering courses for Quality Assurance,  QTP, Selenium along with a real time project which will provide you a hands-on experience.
