Neotys NeoLoad Review

It has great reports and provides us with good flexibility. The language used to code scripts was very specific to NeoLoad.

What is most valuable?

  • The load testing support for different specialized products.
  • It has great reports and provides us with good flexibility.
  • The product support was from Neotys was good.

How has it helped my organization?

By running NeoLoad just prior to a major system upgrade, we discovered a major performance issue which pointed to a configuration setting on one of the servers. The configuration was amended and the scripts re-run.

What needs improvement?

It wasn't easy to learn how to use NeoLoad and it has a bit of a learning curve. The language used to code scripts was very specific to NeoLoad. It would be better if they incorporated Java and/or other popular coding languages as this would help smooth out the learning curve.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for approximately one year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We had no issues with the deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There have been no issues with the performance.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's been able to scale for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

9/10 - we get a prompt response whether we contact them via telephone or email.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had a product in place and changed because Neotys had good support.

How was the initial setup?

It was a straightforward installation via an executable file.

What about the implementation team?

We used a vendor team. Neither the coding language nor the ease of use of the product was obvious and we needed someone with NeoLoad experience.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The best advice I can give you is to go for a perpetual licensing option so you just pay per user.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were struggling to find a good load testing tool that could support Siebel. NeoLoad was one which ticked the correct boxes.

What other advice do I have?

It’s a very powerful tool which meets all our load and performance testing requirements, along with very sophisticated monitoring tools and reports.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
