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 scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good.I like the scripting and parameterization features.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.It is a good source for load, stress and performance testing.

Cons
The solution is not easily scalable. If you want to extend the solution, you need to purchase a different kind of license. You also have to work with the IBM team to assist in scaling.

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.I would like to see support for auto-correlations.While importing the scripts from backup it should not create the new variables because it has created some issues for us.NeoLoad does not support Citrix-based applications.It needs improvement with post-production.
