Complete Loadrunner 12

The aim of this course is to provide real-world best practices for the effective use of LoadRunner 12. Delegates will experience practical examples and get the opportunity to put what they learned into practice with hands-on exercises. An optional 1 day lab-based practical is also available as an add-on to the three-day course. This highly useful lab-day will enable delegates to plan and execute a performance test project from start to finish.

At the end of the course, delegates will be able to plan load test scenarios, develop VuGen scripts,and execute scenarios and analyse the results.

There is an optional lab day that can be taken as an add-on to this course - Read more.
