Whitepaper: Understanding the Impact of Running WAN Emulation with Load Testing

by ShunraJun 17, 2008

As reflected by the robust capabilities of industry-standard load testing tools such as HP LoadRunner, the proper setup and execution of a load test is a complex undertaking. Significant effort goes into each load testing project. Organizations that are disciplined enough to properly implement performance testing into their application development lifecycle have gained significant business benefits from finding issues and properly sizing capacity prior to application roll-out. Increasingly, many pre-deployment testing labs have found that it is critical to incorporate the impact of WAN on application load testing. This white paper describes the importance of assessing network impact on application performance and the value that is obtained by integrating WAN emulation into load testing.


Whitepaper: Managing Application Performance by Understanding Applications

by ShunraApr 23, 2008

IT organizations are considering application delivery from new perspectives due to the automation of key business processes, and the fact that acceptable application performance is continually becoming more difficult. The goals of this white paper are to:

� Identify some of the key issues that make ensuring acceptable application performance so difficult.
� Describe how IT organizations can use WAN emulation tools to improve application performance, plan for change and improve relationships between application and network groups.

To achieve these goals, three IT professionals were interviewed: A manager of technology, architecture and engineering for a large, international law firm, a consultant who is responsible for application testing at a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company, and the lead performance engineer for a Fortune 500 financial institution.
