Yeah - there are degrees of skill, experience and certification to all engineering roles. You are right that LoadRunner (and other tools) still rely heavily on the intelligence of the engineers. Moreover, I have always found it more successful to be a load tester using LoadRunner with other engineers on the inter-disciplinary team: network, database, storage, application and server admins.When I worked on customer engagements in the Microsoft Services Labs, we always had a virtual team of the best performance-minded gurus we could find.
