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.

The integration with Git needs improving because it is a bit disjointed and unpredictable.The pricing of this solution should be lowered.We would like to be able to easily integrate this solution with our continuous integration tools, such as Jenkins.The documents on the Microsoft website are not very useful, and they ought to make it easier to find answers.The database administration could be better; you should be able to choose new tools with the development environment in Visual Studio. It could be easier to use.The data flow can be improved.Enhancing the support for web application testing and load performance would be an improvement.The service right now is far too expensive. You need to pay per user.

I think that the pricing is quite good.For the cloud services option, you buy a subscription per account or per user. This costs around $52 a month per person.

Overview

The NeoLoad load and performance testing tool for web and mobile apps realistically simulates user activity and monitors infrastructure behavior to eliminate bottlenecks. It covers all performance testing from component and automated tests to system-wide hybrid-cloud load tests.

Visual Studio Professional Edition provides an IDE for all supported development languages. As of Visual Studio 2010, the Standard edition was dropped. MSDN support is available as MSDN Essentials or the full MSDN library depending on licensing. It supports XML and XSLT editing, and can create deployment packages that only use ClickOnce and MSI. It includes tools like Server Explorer and integration with Microsoft SQL Server also. Windows Mobile development support was included in Visual Studio 2005 Standard, however, with Visual Studio 2008, it is only available in Professional and higher editions. Windows Phone 7 development support was added to all editions in Visual Studio 2010. Development for Windows Mobile is no longer supported in Visual Studio 2010; it is superseded by Windows Phone 7.
