HP LoadRunner 12.0 Essentials

This five-day course introduces students to LoadRunner 12.0. The course covers topics about the Virtual User Generator (VuGen), Controller, and Analysis tools. It also includes a final one day, hands-on lab. This course is designed to give you a foundation in basic load testing tasks. You create and run load test scenarios using the Controller. The Analysis tool is used to analyze load test results. You learn to work with the graphs to display data after a test is executed.

The hands-on labs are designed to provide you with the knowledge necessary to create scripts in VuGen, execute scenarios in the Controller, and view the results in the Analysis tool. The course consists of focused, task-oriented lectures, text, and a series of detailed hands-on labs to teach the course material to the student. The hands-on labs use version 12.0 of the software.
