LoadRunner vs. OpenSTA and others
We've been using WebLoad 5.0 and LoadRunner at our test center here for the past several years and unfortunately we're starting to get hammered by lic. issues (getting too expensive for unlimited site wide lic.). Has anyone here used OpenSTA? If so, how does it compare to WebLoad or LoadRunner?
Re: LoadRunner vs. OpenSTA and others
In terms of pricing, hands down of course! Free vs. exorbitant overpricing
In terms of features, however LR is by far the best, the most comprehensive.
A good tool should be capable of:
1. Workload Generation
2. Transaction monitoring
3. Resource monitoring.
OpenSTA is able to accomplish 2 of the 3 in varying amounts of sufficiency depending, of course, on the type of application you need to test.
