Performance testing with LoadRunner

Performance testing with SharePoint, or any web based application, can be quite tricky. Recently my team launched an upgraded Corporate Web Site based on SharePoint 2007. The launch was quite challenging mainly due to mistakes made during performance testing .

We used Load Runner for all of the performance tests. The LoadRunner clients were located within the same data centre as our web servers, but they were on different network segments.

When we ran the tests we engaged several people from operations team (Network, Windows Server, SQL Server DBA and SharePoint Admin). These people were  required to collect performance statistics and report those back so they could be included in overall performance test report.
