    Re: Load runner

    What do you mean? Are you referring to an application that is local and does not converse with a server? Give an example.

    Thanks jack for immediate reply

    it is a desktop application that is local and no interaction with server.
    e.g. Ms-paint application.

    our aim is to check the thread behind the application for each user.

    so is it possible in load runner if so then how?

    Re: Perf Testing Desktop Apps

    PerfMon

    Moved here since this is not a LoadRunner solution candidate.

    Re: Perf Testing Desktop Apps

    Seems like most functional test automation tools could drive your desktop application.

    Many of them can measure the performance as well.

    Some can check thread counts.

    My suggestion would be to check out some of the vendors who advertise here, and look through the tool-specific forums.

    What are you trying to check in the thread and why? By 'each user' are you referring to multiple instances of a single application concurrently running on a workstation, or single instances run at different times?

    The reason I ask is that IMO perfmon is quite good for gathering resource usage, but if you are looking for some more in-depth analysis of performance bottlenecks, I would suggest an execution profiler.

    The principal difference is that tools like Perfmon are essentially black box, and will give total usages for various resources broken down by process and resource type over time.

    Whitebox execution profilers will let you know how much time is spent in different parts of your code, and similarly how resources are allocated within your code. This is essential if the final goal of your performance testing is algorithm or program optimisation.

    AQTime and DevPartner are two products that I have used in the latter area. Google will give you plenty of details on either. Plenty of good open source profilers are also available, check the code project and sourceforge.net.
