Announcing the launch of LoadRunner v.12.55

In today’s era of ever-increasing product complexity and shorter release cycle times, many applications cannot maintain consistent performance. LoadRunner and Performance Center 12.55 empower teams to manage complexity, giving DevOps teams access to a full spectrum of standard tools, technologies, utilities, and other resources so they can quickly and easily code performance testing into apps and things.

Now Even Easier

Try out the new innovative console in LoadRunner Version 12.55. It makes managing software test planning and execution even easier than before.

  • Test It All: Web, Mobile and Hundreds Other Types of Apps

    With 50+ protocols, you can easily test a huge range of applications including web, mobile, Ajax, Flex, HTML 5, .NET, Java, GWT, Silverlight, SOAP, Citrix, ERP and more. LoadRunner supports the latest application technologies as well as the legacy ones.

  • Recording Summary Report

    The gathered information shown in the report allows the user to potentially make decisions regarding his application design, whether by observing the number of requests, size of data sent and received, type of data etc. Furthermore, using the report makes removing the unwanted requests (such as Google statistics, ads, third-party data) from the script much easier and faster.

  • IoT ready: New protocol – MQTT

    MQTT (MQ Telemetry Transport) protocol is a Machine to Machine (M2M) protocol widely used in Internet of things (IoT). When using the new LoadRunner MQTT protocol, a user can emulate MQTT clients and design and execute performance testing of MQTT-based IoT systems.

  • Providing a Better Insight in Deep-dive Root Cause Analysis of Performance Bottlenecks

    The NV (Network Virtualization) Insights report can help you improve the performance of your application by identifying potentially problematic issues in your transactions and providing recommendations for optimizing network traffic. With the Client-side Breakdown Report your teams can view statistics that help measure the quality of the user experience for your application.

  • View, Dissect, and Compare the Results of the Load Tests

    When you execute a load test scenario, Vusers generate result data as they perform their transactions. The Analysis tool provides graphs and reports enabling you to view and understand the data, and analyze system performance after a test run.


With 50+ protocols, you can easily test a huge range of applications including web, mobile, Ajax, Flex, HTML 5, .NET, Java, GWT, Silverlight, SOAP, Citrix, ERP and more. LoadRunner supports the latest application technologies as well as the legacy ones.

Modernize Performance Testing

How do you keep pace with ever-increasing user expectations in the face of accelerating release cycles, mushrooming IT complexity, and massive scalability requirements? Not to mention new initiatives such as digital transformation, transition to Agile methods, incorporation of Big Data and predictive analytics, and exploration of the Internet of Things (IoT).
