Neotys NeoLoad Review

Prior to NeoLoad, we needed to simulate heavy volumes. We're now able to generate loads from our side and quickly spin the load tests.

Valuable Features:

We pretty much use the majority of the features, but two of the key things are the cloud integration and the ability to spin up the load tests. That is the key driver to using this tool.

Improvements to My Organization:

It's impacted us in a positive way. Prior to NeoLoad, we needed to simulate heavy volumes. We're now able to generate loads from our side and quickly spin the load tests. This process has been greatly improved.

Room for Improvement:

We had some initial issues with the number of tests, memory leaks, and the controller itself.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for three years.

Stability Issues:

In the beginning we had some issues with the number of tests, memory leaks, and the controller itself. We worked with them and they came out quickly. After some time now, it's pretty stable.

Scalability Issues:

It didn't scale well at first but now it does.

Initial Setup:

The setup itself is straightforward. We are in a strict environment so we had some challenges installing it on some machines, but that was down to us internally. We're OK now.

Implementation Team:

The implementation was done in-house.

Other Solutions Considered:

We looked at some others, but NeoLoad really stood out in the end.

Other Advice:

I would strongly recommend this tool highly. It's improved our business a lot.

The real plus of Neoload IMO is the script-ability. This makes it much easier to use than say HP Loadrunner. The tool has some serious work in the maturity department though. On the other hand, if you find a an issue and report it, its treated very seriously and its usually solved in a timely manner.
