The original poster - QAstudy was not talking about "experts", nor am I. It takes months to become fluent in a few protocols and years to become expert at a tool like LoadRunner. If I hire a person for a LoadRunner job, I need someone who knows LoadRunner. To me it is less than immediately important if the person has the vaguely "good" understanding of the "Analysis part". (I expect they will improve on that with time). For one, if a person claiming LoadRunner experience can't do the work required to get to the "Analysis part", 1) they are of no use to me and, 2) they do not then have LoadRunner experience and nor is the person a LoadRunner person! 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. I rely on many sets of eyes to look over the whole landscape of the analytical data. I expect the LoadRunner person to listen and learn from the other eyes, with an ultimate goal of performance testing, tuning, and engineering - along the lines of Corey's suggestion.
My previously posted metric - one in forty is now one in forty one. Deception is on the increase!
