Not really. Since you can only run one user per machine, and WinRunner is fairly slow comparitively. I am not sure how you would accomplish a performance test using WinRunner. In my experience it is not possible.
Simple minds, Simple thoughts!
I figure if you have the courage to get out of bed in the morning, then how bad can the day be.

Is it possible to perform performance testing using winrunner instead of loadrunner?If so how.
Yes it is, on a very small scale (maybe a up to a maximum of 10 to 20 concurrent users, which depends on your performance test objectives. (Consider cost per license and the management of 20 machines!). In this case if you do not have LoadRunner or intend to acquire it, then this represents an option. Read up on transactions in the Winrunner User Guide. You will need to do a lot of manual preparation of performance-related reports since WinRunner does not provide those. It will provide the transaction times only. Depending on how much of this WinRunner-based performance testing you will do - you may need to write some TSL-based utilities to parse and present the performance data.
