    How many people are going to be using your desktop simultaneously?

    Perhaps a functional test might be more appropriate than a load test.

    Basically it is Bank Application and the Client is very much worried about Performance . The load on the Application can be varied according to time..Like everyday 4pm top 6 pm it can haver the max load and the application shud work with out any problems.

    Re: LoadRunner - Performance Test of Desktop Applications

    So it some java applet based application or similar technology with most of the logic on the client side? These are usually quite problematic for LoadRunner, if you need to simulate that application for stressing the server-sids. Nevertheless, you are interested in how the server-side behaves under increasing load, if you are using LoadRunner or a similar tool.

    >>> These tools are used for simulating several (usually more than 1...) concurrent virtual users stressing some test environment, to see how the system, network etc. behaves under pre-defined load levels.

    If you are worried about how fast/well the client application (whether it is an applet or something else) is running on the desktop, some optimization tools for the code is more what you are looking for. These are most probably, or at least should be, used by your developers. LoadRunner is not the right tool in this case.

    Re: LoadRunner - Performance Test of Desktop Applications

    Hi Mikael,

    Its not the case..My application is .NET based application. and all the Bussines Layer lies in server. I want to test the system as whole even though functional testing of the Modules in Bussiness layer is taken care of.

    So basically it is somthing like VB aplication running in ur desktop and interacting with Bussiness layer and databse.

    Determine the communication protocol that the application uses and use LoadRunner to capture the required actions you perform. You will probably need to read the documentation; attend training; and get a mentor to make your cause fruitful.
