Why and how to achieve the HP - ATP LoadRunner v12 certification

We get many questions around performance-testing. Companies dealing with large datasets or big data (think Idea Economy) require performance optimization. Businesses want to know how to optimize, what software to use, and who the experts are with LoadRunner. LoadRunner v12 is a very popular load-testing software suite. Employers are listing LoadRunner certifications and experience in their job postings. Even companies that don’t use LoadRunner use the LoadRunner skill sets as a competency gauge. LoadRunner has a wide range of supported protocols and is one of the best-licensed performance testing tools on the market. Google search “LoadRunner” and you will be amazed by the number of pages filled with content for perspective LoadRunner candidates. There is even a Wikipage dedicated to HP LoadRunner.

If you’re wondering, “what exactly is LoadRunner,” here’s a quick overview. LoadRunner is the Hewlett Packard Enterprise industry-standard software solution for application performance and load testing. LoadRunner helps you prevent issues by detecting bottlenecks, and it gives you an accurate picture of end-to-end system performance before going live.

The LoadRunner tool is extremely flexible for organizations and projects of all sizes, allowing you to test a range of applications, including mobile, Ajax, Flex, HTML 5, .NET, Java, GWT, Silverlight, SOAP, Citrix, ERP, and legacy.

With an intuitive record and playback mechanism, including the patented TruClient technology, LoadRunner reproduces real business processes that a user would perform in production. It then emulates hundreds or thousands of concurrent virtual users, with minimal hardware, to apply accurate workloads to any application. After the test completes, the LoadRunner analysis engine provides a single view of end-user response time, infrastructure-level, and code-level performance; and supports identification of the most likely causes of performance issues.

There are two LoadRunner certifications:

  1. HP ATP –LoadRunner v12
  2. HP ASE –LoadRunner v12

This blog post will cover the ATP certification.. There are no prerequisites for either LoadRunner certification. The certification path you choose depends on your level of experience with the tool.
