k6 (formerly Load Impact)

[k6 (formerly Load Impact)] is well suited to run performance automated suites and to run stress tests, spike tests and load tests[.] We can run tests from recorded [sessions] but we cannot run npm modules and we cannot run nod js libs[.]

LoadComplete

If you are testing an application and you don't have experience in performance testing, this tool will help you to test the load with some documentation help. It's very easy to use. and if you have complex scenarios to determine the coding and adjusting graphs, the LoadComplete will not be a helpful tool for you.

  • Running locally or on cloud
  • Excellent docs

LoadComplete

  • We have been using LoadComplete in the Tech Department. I usually use LoadComplete to test the speed and loads of several applications we develop in-house.
  • Moreover, we have also used LoadComplete to create reports and at the same time report any issues that we notice during a certain load.
  • It is an affordable platform.
  • LoadComplete has a lot of good features which has made my life so much easier so there are many pros of this tool as well. It is quite easy to use and comes in very handy.

Customer support is good. If any concerns are raised, they are usually resolved soon, but when questioned about a feature LoadComplete does not support, it usually takes more time to resolve.

Alternatives Considered

k6 (formerly Load Impact)

K6 is a very different kind of tool to the other load testing tools we tried. Most other tools like LoadComplete for example are more focused on creating tests from a user interface, recording tests for running later, etc. These are all very good and useful, but if your focus is running load tests on APIs only, K6 is a very good option. It's also open source and therefore can be used even if you don't have the budget for buying a pro version of a load testing solution

LoadComplete

We chose loadcomplete because we already use SmartBear software for other automation solutions. Porting over test cases is easy and a user can have a test up and running within minutes. I do wish SmartBear would have better support and I haven't used any other testing tool in a while to make a comparison.

Return on Investment

k6 (formerly Load Impact)

  • K6 make its easy to engage Devs in testing
  • Extremely fast installation make it count for us
  • Not using all system resources is a great benefit
Mahmoud Shaaban | TrustRadius Reviewer

LoadComplete

  • We were able to perform tests of websites very easily but the tool doesn't allow customizing test scripts. So all new websites built on the latest angular technologies cannot be performance tested using this tool
  • No, API performance testing capabilities, hence we had to use ReadyAPI and give up on LoadComplete. In this case, it was 0 ROI for us
  • We do use it heavily for Database Load Testing though. It also helps us generate a lot of tests data for other functional testing saving us a lot of time from manually replicating the test data
