"It runs completely flawlessly and seamlessly every day."
"It's an open-source solution with a very large community and available documentation."
"It is a good source for load, stress and performance testing."
"It helped in achieving the testing of on-premise applications, as well as cloud-based applications, without much difficulty."
"NeoLoad is best tool for testing in production without making many changes to the script or solution."
"I like the scripting and parameterization features."
"The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good."
"The test cases are quite easy to build and to maintain. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us. It's the reason why they changed from JMeter to NeoLoad."
"The most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to."
"Very easy to use the front end and the UI is very good."
"Configuration-wise, there is a lot of room for improvement."
"Stability is an area that needs some improvement."
"It needs improvement with post-production."
"NeoLoad does not support Citrix-based applications."
"While importing the scripts from backup it should not create the new variables because it has created some issues for us."
"I would like to see support for auto-correlations."
"Sometimes it's complicated to maintain the test cases. It's much easier than in JMeter, however. I'm not sure if this depends so much on NeoLoad, or is more based on the environment that we are testing."
"Most people focus on HTTPS or TCP, but it would be good to have support for a variety of different protocols."
"Support wasn't able to solve a technical issue."

|Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms. Native apps are those written using the iOS or Android SDKs. Mobile web apps are web apps accessed using a mobile browser (Appium supports Safari on iOS and Chrome or the built-in 'Browser' app on Android). Hybrid apps have a wrapper around a "webview" -- a native control that enables interaction with web content. Projects like Phonegap, make it easy to build apps using web technologies that are then bundled into a native wrapper, creating a hybrid app. Importantly, Appium is "cross-platform": it allows you to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS and Android testsuites.|
The NeoLoad load and performance testing tool for web and mobile apps realistically simulates user activity and monitors infrastructure behavior to eliminate bottlenecks. It covers all performance testing from component and automated tests to system-wide hybrid-cloud load tests.
