Automatically Discovers Top Transactions to Generate LoadRunner Test Scripts

High volume performance testing should be an integral part of every organization's Web application performance management strategy. Coradiant TrueSight Load Test Adapter simplifies the testing process by identifying the most common click paths and generating the corresponding test scripts.

Coradiant Inc. , a leader in Web Application Performance Management, today announced the release of TrueSight® Load Test Adapter, a turnkey software product addition to the Coradiant TrueSight Web Application Performance Management family that makes load testing Web applications accurate, faster and less costly. TrueSight Load Test Adapter generates accurate HP LoadRunnerâ„¢ test scripts derived from real-time, end-user generated traffic captured from a live production environment. TrueSight Load Test Adapter analyzes that traffic and automatically determines the most frequently used click paths and the highest traffic volume requests, allowing quality assurance personnel to auto-generate realistic HP LoadRunner load testing scripts from the most interesting click paths.

Tedious and time-consuming manual generation of load testing scripts using available tools requires that quality assurance personnel make guesses in order to simulate Web site traffic patterns. Available tools don't generate testing scripts that accurately reflect the highest volume or most frequently used click paths, even when they have access to real traffic. The end result is inaccurate load tests that do not represent real life situations and do not reflect the actual top transactions that exist on sites.

"Coradiant TrueSight Load Test Adapter is designed to make performance testing fast, simple and efficient," said Jerry Rosenberg, manager of capacity planning at DealerTrack Holdings, Inc. "Our online Web applications serve approximately 18,000 dealerships and are constantly evolving to meet market needs. Our testing showed that TrueSight Load Test Adapter gave us an accurate picture of actual site traffic and will enable us to quickly generate precise testing scripts for LoadRunner. Reproducing real-world usage in our testing environment should allow us to significantly enhance the quality of our applications prior to deployment."

TrueSight Load Test Adapter integrates with Coradiant's flagship TrueSight product as a separately deployed virtual machine that extracts production data, analyzes the results and produces load testing scripts. TrueSight Load Test Adapter automates the process of:

  • Identifying the most commonly used click paths
  • Creating virtual user scripts compatible with HP LoadRunner software

As a result, the guesswork is eliminated from the script building process and the resulting scripts are more relevant and useful. Load testing scripts are obtained much faster without needing deep knowledge of the application being tested.

"High volume performance testing should be an integral part of every organization's Web application performance management strategy. Coradiant TrueSight Load Test Adapter simplifies the testing process by identifying the most common click paths and generating the corresponding test scripts." said Fred Dumoulin, vice president of product management at Coradiant. "Load testing tools such as HP LoadRunner emulate hundreds or thousands of concurrent users in order to test production workloads prior to rolling out upgrades to Web applications. Coradiant takes the guesswork out of creating accurate and reliable scripts that reflect actual site use as seen in production."
