I really like Scott's reply.

I've been considering taking my list of tools OFF my resume because it's nothing more than buzzword bingo at this point.

If you want to test me on the tool, bring it in, but to me, it's a hammer.

My son is almost 7. I can teach him how to use a hammer, but I'm still the one building the shelves.




Many of our friends should understand that Loadrunner is just another tool.

To do the Performance testing, if one person has a good experience with one tool, then he can learn the other tool (even for a specified protocol) in matter of weeks.

Jake,
you have explained about performance engineering and its vastness in the thread,
http://www.sqaforums.com/showthreaded.php?Cat=0&Number=340294&page=0&vc=1

Everyone will accept with you 100%

But in this reply, you said

Quote:

If the person is weak on the "Analysis part", I can bring other skillsets (dbas, network & sys admins, etc.) to bear on that part and usually do.




Apart from DBAs, how many network & sys admins are having good knowledge about monitoring the servers like Apache,IIS,Weblogic,Websphere and all the OSs and about tuning those servers (if they had to be).

If they do have good knowledge in monitoring and tuning as you said , then there will not be any requirement for people like us ( a Performance consultant or Performance Analyst or Performane Engineer).
