Yes, you heard me right as long as the message I heard wasn’t lost in translation. I am currently reporting live from the Ignite event at Velocity Conference NY, and today was AMAZING!!
Keep reading to find out what happened at the event and to learn more about the presentations.
There is still time! You don’t want to miss it! You can still attend the Velocity Conference in New York City. This event is unlike any other application performance conference you will attend.
Keep reading to find out how you can connect with us and to find out what exciting sessions we are bringing to the event.
Are you attending Velocity NYC next week? If you are (or are in New York during that time) I encourage you to take the opportunity to meet with us during the event.
We are hosting a performance engineering meet-up on Monday. Keep reading to find out how you can join us!
When you record Web/HTTP scripts using HP LoadRunner’s Vugen, you might find that the script won’t play back without modification. This is often due to values that apply specifically to the current session. Because Vugen is playing back values that were recorded when the script was originally recorded, these values are not valid when played back. To make the script play back correctly, these values must be replaced with values from the currently executing session. The process of identifying and replacing these values is known as correlation.
Continue reading to learn some tips that will make it easier for you to correlate values in your Vugen scripts.

iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads have become a valuable part of the IT infrastructure. As a result, there is a need to validate the performance of these devices as they run applications. HP LoadRunner, as the leading performance testing tool in the market, is the perfect choice for this validation. To get started, LoadRunner needs to obtain the HTTP activity performed by the device. Because LoadRunner’s network traffic recording mechanism doesn’t run on iOS, we have a way of getting at the HTTP activity.
Continue reading to find out how LoadRunner can be used to access and record HTTP traffic on the iOS device.

Virtualization is all around us, and you may be considering using virtual servers as a load generator. There is support for this option in LoadRunner and Performance, but the question to ask is “Are the tools that you are using to test your application affecting the results of those tests?”
Keep reading to find out how noise and other factors could be impacting your tests.
Have you ever been driving down the road when suddenly your engine starts to stall out and your car stops? Does it ever happen at the exact 100,000 mile mark if you haven’t replaced the timing belt?
No of course that scenario doesn’t happen. But not taking care of your car (or your performance testing software) does have consequences. Keep reading for an easy-to-follow guide to maintaining your HP Performance Center installation.
Would you put up with a tool that wastes your time? I can’t imagine why you would.
I have a zero-tolerance policy for slow tools, because tools are supposed to make me faster, and as you know, speed counts. In application delivery it’s all about who can release faster without compromising the experience for the end user.
Keep reading to see how fast you can really go.
Mobile applications are everywhere. They have infiltrated every aspect of our lives. They are much more than simply a trend, they empower us to do more and be more.
But these applications pose a challenge for developers. There are multiple devices and platforms that all have different performance requirements.
Keep reading to find out what developers can do to make sure the performance of their applications is satisfactory on multiple devices.
Performance testing is not just about creating scripts and executing the tests. Once you understand this fact, you begin to look deeper into the rationality behind how to design, execute and understand the results.
Keep reading to find out how you can join us for a series of webinars and learn how to gain this understanding.
There are a few general rules that apply to protocols and load testing. One is that if you want to make the job of scripting easier, it comes at the cost of memory.
This is because using more memory makes the protocol less scalable up to the point.
Keep reading to find out how you can easily understand the relationship between memory and how many users your load generator can run.
When you think of the word “Cloud”, chances are that you don’t immediately think of weather. (This is an industry-blog after all). Your mind most likely thinks of the ways you can save money by moving to the cloud.
Now what do you think about when I say the word “Storm”? (Now I bet you are thinking about weather.) As of July 24, my hope is that you will think performance testing when I say “storm”. Keep reading to find out why you should look to the cloud for the latest in performance testing.
We have a BIG Announcement!
This is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a revolution.
And as you know, revolutions often start with the sound of thunder in the distance.
Prepare yourself…a storm is coming!
