[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[.]

NeoLoad is a very comprehensive tool if you are looking for a performance test tool for web applications and other applications using protocols like REST, SOAP, etc. The concepts are easy to understand and mostly clear. This enables you to develop very fast tests with a very good flexibility regarding the number of virtual users, the mixture of scripts, locations where load is generated or there is load variation. In consulting projects it is very helpful that project data and reports can be viewed by NeoLoad without the need of a license.

Pros

k6 (formerly Load Impact)

  • Scripted load tests that can be run from CI/CD pipelines
  • Running locally or on cloud
  • Excellent docs

Tricentis NeoLoad (formerly Neotys NeoLoad)

  • Building performance testing scripts is easy. NeoLoad builds the scripts for you by recording your session as you navigate through the application under test.
  • NeoLoad works with mobile applications using the same recording technique.
  • NeoLoad has modules that permit gathering OS metrics from the target host and correlating the data with the load testing results. The modules are agentless, meaning that there no need to deploy NeoLoad code modules on the host to gather these metrics.

Cons

k6 (formerly Load Impact)

  • I would like to see k6 run in browsers
  • I would like to be able to import npm modules
  • I would like to see k6 has a GUI

Tricentis NeoLoad (formerly Neotys NeoLoad)

  • It takes longer than expect to connect with Load Generator machine, caused in failure of test launch.
  • It should support others languages apart from java-script.
  • Code based automation is missing, which leads little frustration.

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.

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
Ahmed Anwar Nasr | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tricentis NeoLoad (formerly Neotys NeoLoad)

NeoLoad is more SAP-centric and offers use cases a lot closer to what we experiment on a daily basis. The main competition in the space would be loadrunner but it lacks the flexibility of NeoLoad, and also comes at a much higher price in a way that would have hurt our time-to-value objective.

Return on Investment

k6 (formerly Load Impact)

  • K6 make its easy to engage Devs in testing

Tricentis NeoLoad (formerly Neotys NeoLoad)

  • Using NeoLoad Prevented multiple production outages. ROI depends on the criticality of uptime and SLA for a given application.
  • It takes Developers time to construct an accurate load test plan.
  • Preventing problems is almost always a positive ROI. NeoLoad has indeed benefited our organization compared to its cost.
