Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It is open source as well as relatively extendable. It allows us to extend and add additional functionality and features. Its deployment is also very easy.""The biggest thing I liked about it is that there is a huge user base out there, and being shareware and being Apache, if I have any question on how to get something done, I get 18 different answers. Out of those, there would be at least a few good approaches for what I was trying to do. So, the support system out there is most valuable.""Scripting with the solution is good.""The performance of the solution is excellent.""I like the fact that JMeter integrates well with other tools.""The reports and analysis tools are very good. They are the solution's most valuable features.""The recording and playback functionality is helpful.""Very user-friendly and easy to use."

"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 most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to.""The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good.""Very easy to use the front end and the UI is very good.""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."

Cons
"I sometimes found the documentation to be not as explanatory as I would've liked it. In the cases that I can think of, I was looking for a rather hand-holding approach with Step A, B, and C, but then I realized that with a product that is open source like this, you can't do handholding. That is because there are so many different uses and different unique environments and setups for it, but I remember thinking a few times that if they only just said this.""You really need a technical team in order to really utilize the product.""We're like the solution to be more user-friendly.""The reporting is not very good.""They can improve it a little bit in terms of distribution load testing. We struggled with it during the distribution. In terms of reporting, runtime monitoring is not currently included, and it should be included. They can also improve it on the reporting side in terms of the comparison of the reports. They can also focus more on integration with CI/CD. Currently, people are using their own customized tools. It would be nice if Apache can provide some standard tools and procedures for integration with CI/CD tools like DPR. There are some tools, but it would be nice if official standard tools and procedures are available.""It should start supporting the presentation layer. It currently provides performance testing specifically at the application and API level. It can be extended to the presentation layer, which includes mainly Angular and React frameworks. It should also be easy to use and easy to train people.""Considering the kinds of tests we are performing here, where we launch several tests at the same time as a batch request, JMeter is not the best tool for the job. Those kinds of things could be done easily with other tools, like T6.""Automation is difficult in JMeter."

"Support wasn't able to solve a technical issue.""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.""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.""LoadRunner offers a full protocol, whereas, with this product, only a few of the protocols are supported - not all."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is an open-source product.""We are using the free version, and if required, we can easily switch to the other version.""When comparing the price with Load Runner, and if the cost is an issue then JMeter is a better choice""I haven't looked into it. Most of our projects are nonprofit or grant-based. Everything is public commons, so we don't really have to worry about that so much.""I was using the free version of the software.""In terms of open-source adoption, it is completely free."

"Licensing for NeoLoad is subscription-based.""Its licensing cost is very less."
