    Dear Friends,

    SAP recommends for load testing the HP Load Runner tool.

    Load Runner supoorts multiple different protocols : http, RFC, Java, etc. which could be used to simulate load against different SAP products .

    HP Load Runner is not developed by SAP - all the features and functions documentation and 'how to guides' for how to use the load testing tool are delivered and maintained on the HP web pages.

    In the Internet there are available multiple recorded sessions and movies by Load Runner experts, which could be useful to you on concrete topics. (search for "load runner tutorial").

    Best Regards,

    Sylvia

    Hi

    SAP as such does not have a tool of its own for Load/Performance testing but it recommends to use LoadRunner. For internal purposes, You can get the license by filling in a license requisition form.

    Let me know if you need the template of the license form.

    Regards

    Madhu

    Hi Pallavi,

    As Madhu rightly mentioned, several SAP teams use Mercury LoadRunner internally for load testing of NetWeaver components and also SAP Active Global Support uses LoadRunner at customer sites.

    If you are a SAP employee, you can get LR license filling up an internal request document. But if you are not a SAP employee, please check with Mercury. In case you intend to use other tools, please check with the document "How to Load Test EP" which lists the requirements from Load test tools you need to consider.

    Thanks,

    Swapan Saha

    • Hi Ajay,

      I recently got into SAP Load Testing with LR tool.

      Though i have knowledge of LR, starting from Installation , Configuring on a standalone machine, i do not know how to configure on LAN network.. I have tried to install Diagnostics for Loadrunner seperately but due to limited knowledge in Web servers , i could not go further. If you have started working on LR with SAP, please send me any documentation with some screenshots to start with.. or please mail me any documents to vinni8797@gmail.com,. If you have worked on LR with SAP, can you pls give me a walk through on my machine..

      Vinni,.

    Hi,

    There actually is a free tool SAP recommends, if you do not want to use LoadRunner. The tools is called OpenSTA. You can contact Oliver Segnitz on more detail on this solution.
