Cons
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.

Everything is very manual. It's up to us to find out exactly what the issues are.The solution has a lack of compatibility with newer technologies.The support for automation with iOS applications can be better.The pricing is an issue, the program is very expensive. That is something that can improve.They should extend some of the functions that are a bit clunky and improve the integration.
