Hi Anil,

I guess that after alot of considertions and feedback from customers, it was decided to remove it.                                            

there are better and more effective ways to determain which is the needed protocol such as Wireshark and the list of protocols in the documentaiton which details the usage of each protocol and can help you in choosing the right one.

hope this helps,

Lior

Hi Lior,

To buy HP Loadrunner license we should determine the protocol of the applicatoin. Since HP removed this feature now, it would be difficult for the test anlaysts like me.

Any other alternative approach for this?

Thanks,
Sammeta

I agree in the need of the tool, there might be customer that are not aware of the purpose of the tool, but everytime I tested a new application I used to use the protocol advisor tool to determinate the best protocol to use, without this tool you have to read tons of documentation and still try to guess the best approach.

MicroFocus should care for the customers and bring back Protocol advisor tool.

Sholdn't remove the protocol advisor feature even if getting false results sometimes.

Was making our ways easier and reducing soo much of time before scripting.
