Cons
It would be nice to know how much GPU memory we are using because the data points are not there or it's hard to read.The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools.While the stability is generally good, there are a few strange issues that crop up unexpectedly which affect consistent use of the product.More real-time monitoring should be available for the system under test.Dashboard creation should be implemented, so we can get the results in a desired format.It is tough to maintain from the infrastructure side.New features have been added in latest version and need to be improved with the DevOps integration.We are expecting more flexible to use Jenkins in continuous integration going forward.

Performance and memory management both need to be improved because other solutions use less memory for the same amount of data.If ReadyAPI had more integration with all of the big tools on the market then this would be very useful.I would like to see a better dashboard for monitoring in the next release of this solution.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We license it as we need it. If we use it for one client, and only need it once a year, the licensing cost for 500 users would be approximately US $2.50 per day, per user, so approximately US $1250.00 per day.It is a bit expensive, especially for smaller organizations, but over-all it can save you money.It is a bit expensive when compared with other tools.ROI is 200%.
