QTP and Loadrunner are known to be testing tools. They come from the same company but it will be helpful to know their differences. QTP was created in order to test the interactions of the keyboard like how many keyboard presses are done.

Mouse clicks are also measured by the QTP. Loadrunner is different because this is used to check how heavy the load of the system currently is. This can also be used in order to check the number of different users that are available. The QTP is also known as an Automated Test Tool that will check the performance and function of the things that are mentioned above.

QTP stands for Quickest Professional, which is a testing tool from the same company, but with a different purpose. QTP was created to simulate and test user connections such as mouse clicks and keyboard presses.

Both programs are used to regulate an application and to locate specific reactions that might not be able to see during normal operations, assisting the programmers and developers in tracing the code to determine the problem. LoadRunner is a software testing tool. It is used to assess applications, measuring system presentation, and performance under load.

LoadRunner can simulate a plethora of users who are executing the application software. It simulates activity by creating messages between components or by mimicking interactions with the user interface such as key presses or adjustments. Both programs record how people interact with the program.
