Neotys NeoLoad Review
several key features: Jenkins integration, infrastructure monitoring, and results analysis.


Valuable Features

There are several key features, including Jenkins integration, infrastructure monitoring, and results analysis.

Improvements to My Organization

Implementing this product has allowed us to increase the number of projects that get load testing, and the frequency by which we re-test our performance.

Room for Improvement

It needs improvements in the UI. It's currently not as friendly as it should be.

Use of Solution

We've used it for seven years.

Deployment Issues

We haven't had any issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

We have never experienced any isuses with stability.

Scalability Issues

The product has scaled very well up until this point.

Customer Service and Technical Support

The support from Neotys is very good. Responses are timely and come from experienced, knowledgeable load testing professionals.

Previous Solutions

We previously, and still use JMeter for some projects, in addition to Neoload.

Initial Setup

The initial setup is straightforward for basic usage. The setup for higher volume load testing is more involved, but I wouldn't say complex, as should be expected for an enterprise class load testing tool.

Implementation Team

We implemented it with our in-house team.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It's priced based on the numbers of VUs, virtual users, that your needs require. The free edition gives you 50 VUs. The pricing is fair for high-volume licensing. Cloud VUs can be rented on-demand for bursts of higher capacity testing needs without permanent purchase.

Other Solutions Considered

We looked at JMeter and Webload.

Other Advice

I highly recommend understanding load testing concepts before using any automation tool.

I basically agree with this review. The 'Other Advice' is one of the most valuable parts. Whatever you are using, you need to understand what you are doing. A representative load test environment and sufficient coverage of the application being tested are often ignored, producing test results that will not predict the performance of your production environment.
