We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Designs dynamic scripts and scenarios, as per our requirements, which is one the most important feature available in NetStorm. It helps us to do performance testing of our application in a periodic way."
"NetStorm can generate high load with a single machine. Its Runlogic feature is very useful to send load to cover each and every flow of the application. NetStorm gives the feasibility of generating load with multiple load arrival models helping components to be tested based on its usage."
"The Analysis feature makes it easy to analyze cross-data and we can pin to the focus period."
"The initial setup and installation of the software were very easy and straightforward."
"The solution is quite stable."
"The load testing, reporting, and scripting features are all valuable features."
"I like the user interface. I like the way we can divide our scenarios and can tune them. The integration with the quality center is great. These features are really good."
"I think that analytics is very good and that the analytics features are very powerful."
"The reporting mechanism is a valuable feature that generates good reports."
"The most useful aspect of the solution is that it provides agents in different geographic locations."
"Need to add or support some more APIs in the Script Manager window."
"The user interface had to be improved for the product. Its user interface should be made simple and easy to customize as per user needs."
"The price of this solution should be cheaper."
"Sometimes we are not be able to click on some of the buttons due to the screen mismatching and compatibility issues."
"I guess scalability becomes a problem when you use things like TruClients."
"The solution needs to reduce its pricing. Right now, it's quite expensive."
"The solution uses a lot of memory and then it dies. It's difficult to work with the solution sometimes when you run a scenario it dies. They need to make the solution lighter somehow."
"I would like to have better support for adding more users per load generator."
"The debugging capability should be improved."
"The solution is very costly. The cost is very high, especially considering a lot of other resources are available now and they are less expensive. For a small organization, it is very difficult to sustain the costs involved in having the solution or the related fees"
"The licensing fees are based on the number of users."
"It is competing with other products that may cost significantly less or may be available as open-source. Because of that it is relatively expensive."
"LoadRunner Professional is an expensive product."
"This is not a cheap product."
"There is a licensing cost that is expensive."
