    [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[.]

    Before purchasing Tricentis NeoLoad, we were using a similar Javascript-based tool from another vendor for years. The major issue we were facing was it was very unstable. We were not confident that we would get a test run successfully, especially if the test is heavy. Ex: A 24-hour load test with 3500 users. It used to crash at the end of the test, trying to pull data points, and we'd lose our precious 24 hours! Tricentis NeoLoad totally aces when it comes to stability. I can easily run the same test without having to worry about crashes or slowness. It also reduces the amount of coding that I had to do with the previous tool and saves much time. However, what I miss compared to the previous tool was flexibility. I could plug the previous tool with any third-party DB, stream and store the test data in a time-series DB, and then plot-important graphs out of it. Though Tricentis NeoLoad provides visuals by default, it does not provide any support for third-party integration.

    • NeoLoad supports performance test engineers with a strong feature set to analyse the results. The first metric you have in mind is response time of the application. The metric satisfies the stakeholder if it meets the requirements. Otherwise, the stakeholder wants to know some comments and suggestions for improvement. I rely on the data gathered by monitoring agents when I analyse test results. The monitoring agent is a service which collects different counters from an operating system, databases, web server, etc. The results can be analysed in individual composed graphs. This is a powerful feature to deliver conclusive reports to stakeholders. Even the export of reports in various formats is helpful for communication with different stakeholders.
    • Our customers like the flexible license model of NeoLoad. A usual performance test project starts with the development of tests and configuration of the test environment. Finally, there is a first test execution followed by a couple of additional test executions. Usually, it is hard to say how long it takes to implement the issues based on the test results. So we usually do not know how long is the period between first and last test execution. It does not matter how long the period might be. In most of our projects we prefer daily licenses of NeoLoad. If you buy e.g. a four-day license you can use NeoLoad at four different days.
    • As a performance test engineer, I like the impressive APIs of NeoLoad. NeoLoad is just a performance test tool and the vendor Neotys is focused on this job. Whenever you would like to add something into a test scenario which is not mainly a performance issue you can integrate these parts by APIs which are easy to handle and very powerful. They also support you in case technologies which are not supported yet by NeoLoad. Maybe there is a new device which you want to monitor. Therefore you can report the measurements of the specific counters by the data exchange API during test execution. So you can analyse the data in the usual way. In our company we developed already a couple of features based on the APIs of NeoLoad and we are very happy with this flexibility.

    • There is no support for VT3270 terminal emulation to support mainframe-hosted applications.
    • The ramp-up and ramp-down time data are not automatically excluded from the average response time calculations. Instead, you must exclude these times manually each time you run a test.
    • There is not a summary graphic that shows the distribution of all of the response times on a single graph. We currently export the data as a coma separated variable (CSV) file and import into Excel to generate this summary graph.

      In being flexible to meet all needs, it is very bare bones by design, but this could be a considered a feature and not a bug.

      Its tools are very compatible with both Windows,Linus & can be reuse & share our test-suite & results to certain analytics. Neoload has good support of many protocols. like enterprise software SAP Oracle Siebel etc as compared to Apache JMeter. Moreover; for value-added & with new feature loaded as well as road-maps i preferred the direction of Neoload over Apache JMeter.
