SUMMARY:         This courses focuses on using LoadRunner to load test
Web applications. You will create test scenarios and run them using
the LoadRunner Controller. You will use the LoadRunner Analysis
component to interpret load test results. The information gathered
during planning is used to create and enhance scripts specific to Web
applications using the Virtual User Generator (VuGen) component of
LoadRunner. All topics are supported by hands-on exercises designed
to provide you with the knowledge to load test your applications in the
Web environment.

AUDIENCE:
• Quality Assurance Engineers
• Performance Engineers
• Users who need to write automated scripts to load/stress/debug
their applications in the Web environment.

PREREQUISITES:
• High level knowledge of Web client/server paradigm
• Knowledge of Windows 2000 or Windows NT
• Programming in C, VB or Java

DURATION:      30 Hours

OBJECTIVES:
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
• Discuss the value of load / Stress testing
• Plan for effective load testing
• Establish load test goals
• Develop Scripts in VuGen
• Run load test scenarios
• Load and overload when executing scenarios
• Analyze and interpret load test results
• Create Web Virtual users using VuGen
• Read VuGen Web code
• Measure specific business processes
• Verify functionality under load
• Parameterize scripts to handle user input data
• Customize scripts by adding VuGen functions
• Correlate script to process server-returned data
