The two standout features for us are: * Team Server Collaboration - as is the case with many MNCs like ours, teams/team members are spread geographically at various locations. The Team Server module is a boon for such teams as multiple users... more»

What is most valuable?

* Graphical test creation * Centralized test and results repository * License management

How has it helped my organization?

With the simplicity of the test design interface, little domain knowledge is required for each scripted application, so we are able to generalize all of the performance testers to the point that any tester can update and execute any script... more»

What needs improvement?

If there was ever a way to bring the same level of ease to advanced scripting with Javascript to make it as easy as a regular test in NeoLoad, I would love to see it. Some type of global test scheduler where different tests could be arranged... more»

What is most valuable?

Wasted time in low-end work (scripting) is greatly reduced with NeoLoad. It enables my team to record and modify test scripts very quickly. This reduces the effort for testing and enables the team to do more high-value work like analysis of... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Performance testing is done by testing frameworks in which NeoLoad is the driver of load. The ability to extend the tool is crucial for organisations. Our test framework is composed out of NeoLoad as a centralised component surrounded by... more»

What needs improvement?

The weakest feature of most of the load test tools is result analysis. It is important we can customise graphs to visualise results in such a way that stakeholders can understand the outcome of testing. To be able to visualise results better,... more»

What is most valuable?

* The load testing support for different specialized products. * It has great reports and provides us with good flexibility. * The product support was from Neotys was good.

How has it helped my organization?

By running NeoLoad just prior to a major system upgrade, we discovered a major performance issue which pointed to a configuration setting on one of the servers. The configuration was amended and the scripts re-run.

What needs improvement?

It wasn't easy to learn how to use NeoLoad and it has a bit of a learning curve. The language used to code scripts was very specific to NeoLoad. It would be better if they incorporated Java and/or other popular coding languages as this would... more»

What is most valuable?

The ability to quickly record and correlate a script very quickly with a lower learning curve. A complex LoadRunner script could take days to create, but the same script in NeoLoad could be created within hours. We had contractors coming in,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We were able to create more scripts using NeoLoad within a short time frame. We increased the number of applications we support/test due do the quick scripting time. Now we have more time to do analysis and engineering work which is very... more»

What needs improvement?

The ability to show transactions per second during the test run. Currently, we have to eyeball the TPS using the graph. NeoLoad 5.2 will have TPS reading after the test is completed but not during the test run.
