Deep Dive on Application Performance Engineering with Shunra Software
Instructors: Mark Tomlinson, Senior Performance Engineering Consultant, and Todd DeCapua, VP of Channel Operations and Services, Shunra Software
Take your performance testing skills to the next level! This deep dive session helps testing engineers learn a structured and repeatable approach to application performance engineering using a combination of several products from HP and Shunra Software. The Shunra Application Performance Engineering framework is a common-sense arrangement of practices, processes and deliverables that help to organize the performance engineering activities into a more comprehensive and efficient program. You'll learn how to enhance the planning of your performance tests by first discovering the real-world conditions of the end-user environment, leveraging information from production monitoring. You'll learn how to effectively incorporate real-world conditions into your testing labs or staging environment. Then we'll spend time digging into the workings of a real application and infrastructure, analyzing the performance issues and limitations. At the end, we'll help you learn how to bring all the raw data together and produce a business case for solving and improving the performance of your application and validate the remediation of the real performance issues.
Specific skills acquired will include:
- Introduction to a repeatable framework for Application Performance Engineering
- How to enhance performance test planning with data collected from and about the real world of the end-user. How to include more than just the basic business flows or SLAs.
- How to recreate the real world in your testing lab – with various solutions from HP and Shunra combined
- Single User performance testing and diagnostics – looking into application behaviors, resource abuses, application scoring
- Multi-user performance testing – how to repeat the real-world load of multiple users consuming resources from the application systems and the infrastructure
- Steps for Application Performance Analysis and how to correlate the information from multiple sources into actionable format for decision-making
- Hands-on exercises for analysis and cost justifications for performance optimization or remediation
The course is suitable for users of HP products related to performance testing, monitoring, analysis and diagnostics.
Course level: Intermediate to Advanced
Prerequisites: Participants should have at least 1 year of experience in using HP LoadRunner and/or HP Diagnostics. Knowledge of Shunra products and solutions is not mandatory.

Advanced uCMDB Management and Extension Processes
Instructor: Chaim Amar, CEO, and Daniel Klevansky, CTO, UniViews
As uCMDB and BSM evolve and integrate, there is a growing need for easier, more generic integration and data management capabilities. Come for a refresh on the concepts of uCMDB and CMS in HP, specifically the architecture of the new uCMDB. Through the use of the generic DB adapter and the new uCMDB integration studio, we will demonstrate the process of customizing a discovery adapter, manipulating integrations and managing the process of CMDB population. Learn how to extend the out-of-the-box discovery capabilities and add new classes. Explore the new interface highlights and see previews of uCMDB management processes.
Target Group: uCMDB users
