Best Load Testing Tools12Load testing software is an evaluation tool for determining how an application will perform as the work level approaches the limits of the application's specifications. The primary goal of load testing is to define the maximum amount of work a system can handle without performance slipping significantly. The process of increasing the load beyond its known capacity and seeing how that load affects the application is sometimes called stress testing.JMeter1https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/MN/jr/HRH2X6MD7M7N.jpegSelenium2https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/3q/9o/I2IDCMT2B304.jpegSoapUI NG Pro3https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/Jv/gB/6187RCKN3V59.PNGNeoLoad4https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/GZ/ZB/STZ0E52XKTB1.pngProgress Test Studio5https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/R7/rr/QLIB3ZTZ3984.JPEGMicro Focus LoadRunner (formerly HP LoadRunner)6https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/Zm/IY/D5DAJSH3LPPI-180x180.GIFOracle Application Testing Suite7https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/VC/02/T4E108T4IWP2-180x180.PNGMicro Focus Performance Center (formerly HP Performance Center)8https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/Zm/IY/D5DAJSH3LPPI-180x180.GIFBlazeMeter9https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/Wh/YD/H3AVXZSG59GL.pngParasoft SOAtest10https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/Fw/Au/D35SMKRV1STM.pngLoadComplete11https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/FF/ah/XWV9K91QDLW1-180x180.PNGRapise12https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/uS/Zp/26AAAKR7HJBA-180x180.PNGQualiSystems TestShell13https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/6B/69/25O0R6DQ3QG1-180x180.JPEGFlood IO14https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/b3/Ul/05LCLCVOVZDT-180x180.PNGLoad Impact15https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/28/hz/XPLIJH9028O1-180x180.JPEGWebLOAD16https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/4q/wk/DJIBH3QA02ME.pngSOASTA CloudTest17https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/tL/tP/JVQ0HDAXKTKH.jpegApica LoadTest18https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/yy/u3/DFCN4AK0EOPX.jpegLoad Focus19https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/KD/fM/MH0SE0M3LW31.PNGOctoPerf20https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/6T/JR/77MTOGK5M88U.PNGAppvance21https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/wE/PB/CH3MC1G4WABE.pngdotcom-monitor Web Load Testing and Stress Testing22https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/a2/pF/PT8SPL4TCL88.pngStormRunner Load (formerly HP StormRunner Load)23https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/vendor-logos/Zm/IY/D5DAJSH3LPPI-180x180.GIFSoftLogica WAPT24https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/vW/O8/OB64MLOQX48T.PNGParasoft Development Testing Platform25https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/A2/nS/41Z2MUGZ43IJ.png

Load Testing Tools

Best Load Testing Tools

TrustMaps are two-dimensional charts that compare products and services based on end-user satisfaction ratings and research frequency by prospective buyers. You can filter the data by company size, because small businesses and enterprises can have very different needs.

Products and services must have 10 or more ratings to appear on the TrustMap, and those above the median line are considered Top Rated.

Load Testing Tools Overview

What are Load Testing Tools?

Load testing tools are rightly considered a subset of performance testing software, but is one of the most important aspects of overall testing. There is much overlap between the two categories in terms of product coverage.

Load testing is the simplest form of performance testing and is designed to test system behavior under expected loads. This is different to stress testing which is about overloading systems until they break to understand the outer performance limits.

Load testing, by contrast, ensures that a software application or physical network can handle user requests likely to be encountered under ordinary operating circumstances.

Load testing is almost always performed at or close to the end of the production cycle so that multi-user load simulations are more accurate. While individual components of an application might be load tested as part of the development cycle, as is the case in agile development, this is more properly referred to as functional testing.
