We used LoadComplete by SmartBear as a load testing tool for one of our clients who requested to perform load testing on an application that had some failures on production after days with heavy load. We decided to go with LoadComplete as a trial and to adopt the tool if it met our needs.
  • Load Testing
  • Automating tests and integrating with CD pipelines
  • Recording tests to avoid writing scripts
  • Outdated UI
I think it's more suitable for users who use SOAP APIs a lot, as well as users who are familiar with SoapUI or ReadyAPI since the user experience contains some similarities. It's a good option for load testing, maybe not the best but it does get the job done

LoadComplete is used to evaluate the load testing process. We already had TestComplete for test automation so we started to use LoadComplete for load testing.
  • Easy and handy UI options to select
  • Good support from documentation
  • Eye-catching results
  • Slow when the size of tests increase
  • Coding is not possible
  • Need to support flexibility for a framework that can be customized based on needs
If we already use TestComplete for test automation and there is an urgent need to perform load testing, then it is easy to start with LoadComplete but the tool itself has to improve a lot and support customization to suit our needs. I would say if load testing is the main criteria to use this tool, then there are other open-source tools like JMeter that can support better than this. Of course, as it is an enterprise tool it has very good reporting and record and playback options that I see as an advantage for basic users.
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.

We use LoadComplete to generate traffic in our applications. The common task is to check how an application works after one or few components were changed - e.g. after migration to a new database or after a new module was connected to the system. Our QA Department does control of performance changes and provides a detailed report to our system analytics and developers.

As a little bonus, although LoadComplete is not a tool for API testing, it can run API calls, and sometimes it is rather helpful for us.
  • Smart built-in data correlation. Automatically helps to correlate different dynamic parameters like user session ids, authorization tokens, db-identifiers and so on. Works very fast and save your time for test development.
  • Record & Play feature - LoadComplete can record application servers' metrics like CPU and memory usage.
  • Rather slow work with logging, especially on long tests. Test logs can occupy a big memory space.
  • Coding is not presented in LoadComplete, we can use only predefined features, so we have some limitations in test development.
Good solution for fast development of load tests, especially for staff without programming skills.

We use loadcomplete in the QA and Tech Ops department. We use it to test the speed and load of several applications we develop in-house. We use LoadComplete to create reports and report any issues that we may notice during a certain load. As we develop new applications to update our old ones we will be using LoadComplete from day 1 to make sure our new application does not cause any performance issues to our server as well as have the best experience for our customers.
  • Able to generate detailed reports.
  • Displays graphs during load testing to show the user (Performance Engineer) where a bottleneck occurred.
  • Ability to run tests in the cloud.
  • Port test scripts from TestComplete.
  • Some graphs remain empty, I would like a description of why a certain graph cannot gather data.
  • Allow user to customize the graph.
Loadcomplete is well suited if you have testcomplete. The ability to port over automation tests to turn into Performance tests is one of the best features the company can offer. With the proper training anyone can use loadcomplete, especially if you write your own scripts.

If loadcomplete is not paired with testcomplete, there could be a bit of a learning curve. One feature I don't like about LoadComplete is the lack to write your own scripts. You must do the play back, record and update several variables if you are to have dynamic tests.
