Performance Center 12.0 Essentials

This five-day course introduces students to ALM Performance Center 12.0 and the Virtual User Generator (VuGen) application, which is a scripting tool used to record and run user actions on an application to be load tested. The topics include how to schedule tests, run tests, and analyze test results. Students learn how to effectively and efficiently plan, create, schedule and run a simple test based on the goals determined at the planning phase and to interpret analysis graphs and achieve set performance testing goals. They also focus on planning, creating, and enhancing Virtual User (Vuser) scripts using VuGen in the web environment. All topics are supported by hands-on labs, designed to provide you with the knowledge necessary to create scripts in the web environment. The class is appropriate for both experienced and new product users and others responsible for or involved in performance testing with Performance Center and/or VuGen scripting.
