    Re: How to get started with LoadRunner

    Your question is imprecise? Are you asking about LoadRunner, Astra Quick Test or QuickTest Professional...?

    Re: How to get started with LoadRunner

    LoadRunner is different. It operates (for the most part) at the presentation layer of the OSI model. WinRunner and QTPro operate at the application layer, against a GUI. LoadRunner operates against the messages which are generated by the front end client communicating with the back-end server.

    To learn any of them effectively one begins with training, either formal training or mentoring with someone who has used the tool for a long time and has established expertise in tools and methodologies. ZFor your first engagement, you are not the primary, but an assistant to the mentor. For your second engagement/project, you are the primary and the mentor is your backup. On your third engagement/project (if all has gone well) you are ready to use the tool on your own.

    Re: How to get started with LoadRunner

    LoadRunner can be a very dangerous and confusing tool for new users to approach.

    Yes, in order to be effective, you need to have product training and work with a mentor for your first engagement.

    LoadRunner is not an inexpensive tool, invest in your own training and the success of the project just as you have invested in a tool.

    Re: How to get started with LoadRunner

    Hi ..

    I have installed the trial version of Load Runner 8.0, n while recording from Virtual User Generator, its taking lot of time to open and record a web application.
    I want to know if others r also facing the same problem.
    Is it because the application is taking snap shots of the images?
    James i think u can help me.

    But you would get a lot more attention if you started your own thread, instead of hijacking someone else's
