Set up an Oracle Monitor in LoadRunner Using a Baseball Bat [reblogged]

Scott Moore is one of our good friends and partners over at Loadtester, Incorporated - they have some very helpful articles on their website.


This recent article on setting up Oracle monitoring for LoadRunner is really great - Scott writes:


"Whenever I go into a project where previous LoadRunner testing did not include proper monitoring (by some other jive talking turkey who had no clue), there is always a concern by the database administrator when we start asking for permissions to monitor the database server within LoadRunner. After an offline conversation that last about five minutes, they usually understand what we are doing and have no problem giving us access. However, I always keep a baseball bat handy in case that doesn't work."

Mark Tomlinson is a software tester and test engineer. His career began in 1992 with a comprehensive two-year test for a life-critical transportation system, a project which captured his natural aptitude for software testing, quality assurance, and test automation.

He has broad experience with real-world scenario testing of large and complex systems and is regarded as a leading expert in software testing automation with a specific emphasis on performance. For the majority of Mark’s career he has worked for companies in a strategic role and used the leading products for performance testing, profiling and measurement. He has also consistently established close ties and relationships with the majory vendors who create these tools. While working as the Technology Alliance Manager at Mercury interactive in 2001, Mark was responsible for developing innovative integrations with cutting-edge partner technologies such as Microsoft .NET, SQL Server and Windows Server, IBM Webshpere, RealNetworks, Adobe Flash, and Citrix. Mark worked for 6 years at Microsoft Corporation as a performance consultant and engineer in the Microsoft Services Labs, in the Enterprise Engineering Center, and in the SQL Server labs. His efforts to foster the success of Microsoft’s top-tier Enterprise customers was focused on their early adoption of Microsoft products as part of mission-critical operations. In 2008, as the LoadRunner Product Manager at Hewlett Packard, Mark led his team in delivering leading innovations for performance testing and engineering.
