This is my first post but I have been reading the posts for awhile and I've found this to be very helpful especially for someone like me who is very new to the formal QA process.

I have a question re: BMC Patrol - Predict (formerly Best/1) application. This application is marketed as a performance monitoring tool but I'm told that it can do some performance modelling. Due to certain circumstances, none of the usual performance tool are going to be available in time for performance testing. Does anyone have any experience with this BMC tool and if so, does it do enough to actually be used as a performance testing tool?

Thanks and your responses will be greatly appreciated,
