is part of the Neotys Software load testing product
family, designed for load testing and stress testing
NeoLoad allows to answer several crucial questions
about client/server and web applications before
the application goes live :
- How the coding may alter the application's
behaviour in live environment ?
- How to detect as soon as possible errors
having an influence on global performance and
correct them before running through a QA cycle
- How many users my server will be able to
- Will my users experience acceptable response
times during peak periods ?
- What is the root cause of errors involved
by peak traffic periods ?
- What is the overhead of security regarding
- Where are bottlenecks in my multi-tiers environment
NeoLoad allows all its customers to
easily answer those questions by automatically recording
scenarios reproducing users behaviour.
Those scenarios can be played back multiplying the number
of virtual users and combining parameters like various
modem speeds, users arrival rate, geographical localization,
customization of data...
NeoLoad will provide results and will allow to correlate
response times with information like CPU load, DB load,...
It allows a very fine analysis going
to loading of every single object of a page.
Among some of the recent experience
in Europe, we have been able to detect and identify
issues in production environment such as :
- Errors in a login update involving an infinite loop,
dramatically impacting performance
- Anticipated opening of 200 DB2 databases, slowing
down the transactions
- Design issue in a Multi tiers application supposed
to support 1200 users and struggling with 15 users.
- No SSL need of a bank logo on the homepage involving
increase of response time.
NeoLoad allows to archive scenario's
results and so insure that any new modification won't
affect the application under test.

User Friendly Interface:
No script language ;NeoLoad has a point
and click only interface.
In a few minutes,
you'll be able to drive your first loadtest within clicks,
without any training !
NeoLoad's interface allows a very easy
scenario variabilisation. Among a lot more functionnalities,
you can easily extract logins/passwords from a CSV text
file in order to run your scenario using various logins.
You can also easily switch the server address , which
allows to record a scenario under a test or QA environment,
and then wsitching to pre-production environment.
The product is very affordable : you
can purchase a full Neoload copy for the price of the
only maintenance of competition ! This involves a very
good quality/price ratio.
