Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to.""Very easy to use the front end and the UI is very good.""The stability is okay.""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 licensing cost is very less for NeoLoad. It is user-friendly and easy to understand because they have created so many useful functionalities. When I started working with this tool, we just had to do the initial assessment about whether this tool will be able to support our daily work or not. I could easily understand it. I didn't have to search Google or watch YouTube videos. In just 15 to 20 minutes, I was able to understand the tool.""The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good."

"The most valuable features are the SSIS reports, the deployment models, and the ability to interact with other Microsoft tools.""Performance-wise, it is a great tool.""Easy to use and easily scalable.""The most valuable features are tools like IntelliSense and ReSharper.""It is a very common and strong product. A lot of support is available for this product.""The stability has always been very good.""The ability to quickly make your own components has been valuable.""It is very easy to use. You can handle a lot of things together at once in one package, which is a good point for us."

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.""Support wasn't able to solve a technical issue.""LoadRunner offers a full protocol, whereas, with this product, only a few of the protocols are supported - not all.""Most people focus on HTTPS or TCP, but it would be good to have support for a variety of different protocols.""LoadRunner supports multiple protocols, whereas NeoLoad supports only three protocols. With NeoLoad, we can go for the SAP technology, web-based HTTP, and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). If I have to simulate .NET application-based traffic, I won't be able to do that. So, protocol support is a limitation for NeoLoad. It should support more protocols."

"It is not good in terms of performance. When you open Visual Studio, you have to wait for a while to process your code. It uses a lot of resources and has a lot of features. If we could disable some of the features, it would be lighter and faster to use. Nowadays, for some of the projects, we use VS Code for JavaScript or Python. VS Code is very light and easy to use, whereas, in Visual Studio, we have to wait because it takes time to compile or run a project. It has a lot of competitors in terms of performance, such as Intelligent ID. Intelligent ID is very easy to use. It has many features, and it is lighter to use than Visual Studio. In terms of error handling, sometimes, it shows an error before you finish your code, which can be improved. It would be good if it has a version for Linux. I use VS Code on Linux, but I am not sure if Visual Studio has a version for Linux.""The solution is quite expensive.""We would like to be able to easily integrate this solution with our continuous integration tools, such as Jenkins.""There are too many features with the product and I would like there to be less.""The integration with Git needs improving because it is a bit disjointed and unpredictable.""In Visual Studio we still don't have anything which can pinpoint memory leaks on a certain code line.""One of the problems with this solution is you need to be highly technically skilled to operate it, it is not for everyone.""It needs more integration with other tools for monitoring. Microsoft also needs to make it more modern to make it work with microservices and the cloud. It is a bit outdated currently."

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.
