Quotes From Members Comparing LoadRunner vs. Neotys NeoLoad

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Enables us to test most of the products and projects that we have across all the different technologies, without having to look at other tools.The number of protocols that it supports, and especially, for example, when it talks about SAP GUI-based performance testing.The ability to do multithreading. That's available in any performance testing tool, but the number of protocols that this particular tool supports has been very good.The capabilities and flexibility of the Controller, the ability to monitor the systems under test, and the comprehensive results Analysis which saves a great deal of time.

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.There are several key features, including Jenkins integration, infrastructure monitoring, and results analysis.In my opinion, correlation of dynamic data is the most important advantage of this tool.

Cons
We still have some issues with integration with things like SiteScope which, obviously, being another HPE product should be very straightforward, but there are always issues around that.You should be able to use LoadRunner as a single platform. You should be able to have browser based access. You should be able to run enterprise tests.If the support of the protocols was the same throughout the other protocols and it was there evenly, then I would rate the product higher.More guidance on the use of the Tru Client protocol which is used for Web interfaces.

NeoLoad does not support Citrix-based applications.It needs improvements in the UI. It's currently not as friendly as it should be.It would be good to make some updates on the reporting side.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I would still consider LoadRunner as an expensive tool and you get a LoadRunner and the Performance Center.The cost depends greatly on the needs of the testing engagement.
