Neotys NeoLoad Review

It provides data that provides executive-level comfort during peak periods, driving direction for future performance-oriented projects and goals. However, more community collaboration would be good.


Valuable Features

It gives us the ability to quickly script a load test scenario and to develop complex testing scenarios. If you ever want to know more about your application, just recording a session can be invaluable.

Improvements to My Organization

Outside of the obvious benefits of load testing, the data we get back and are able to provide at the executive level provide a level comfort in the given application at peak periods, and drives direction for future performance-oriented projects and goals.

Room for Improvement

They have done well with patching and enhancements in each version. More of a “community” of shared experiences, help, and collaboration would be a good enhancement to their site.

Use of Solution

Deployment Issues

At times we have had issues with load generator agent stability, but tuning the heap and documented network hacks greatly reduced this.

Other Advice

Start with some small, simple scenarios and expand complexity from there. Your project will take shape quickly, and something that seems overwhelming and complex will all of a sudden will not be so hard. Use the online resources and videos.
