Re: difference between HP insight manager and HP load runner

HP Load Runner: This is testing tool. Used in Software Testing.

 

HP Insight Manager: This is Management Suite. Used in the Management of Datacenter (Server, Switch, Encl. Etc)

 

But these are not related.

if it helped, award me Kudos or Points. Thanks :)

Re: difference between HP insight manager and HP load runner

For example  If we need to test below points :

1) that our application should handle 300 concurrent users successfully,

2)Zoom in functionality of any application

3)Any feature selection by 300 concurrent users.

4)database connectivity

 

then which one we should use ? HP load runner or HP insight manager?

 

one more thing, can we use both tools with GIS application testing?
