"The user interface had to be improved for the product. Its user interface should be made simple and easy to customize as per user needs.""Need to add or support some more APIs in the Script Manager window."

More Cavisson NetStorm Cons »

"Licensing costs could be reduced.""The product is pretty heavy and should be more lightweight.""The solution is very costly. The cost is very high, especially considering a lot of other resources are available now and they are less expensive. For a small organization, it is very difficult to sustain the costs involved in having the solution or the related fees""I would like to see better-licensing costs.""We are going to continue to use the product in the future, I recommend this product. However, those who are looking for only REST-based on the API, I would recommend some other tool because of the cost. There are others available on the market.""I would like to have better support for adding more users per load generator.""The debugging capability should be improved.""The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using."
