SaaS load generators

NeoLoad is a SaaS performance and load testing solution where load generators can be either deployed on-premise, within Kubernetes or OpenShift infrastructure and now with NeoLoad as a fully managed service in the cloud.

Now, users can generate load in the cloud from NeoLoad SaaS and execute load tests as a fully managed service on demand in public cloud (Google Cloud Platform) within 5 mins.

Now you can quickly test your public facing applications without managing your infrastructure by yourself and validate the entire application delivery chain by generating load through firewalls, load balancers and network. NeoLoad will provide all the load testing infrastructure you need, on demand and save you time, effort and remove the wait you typically have for resources.

Platform asset management: Deletion policies

Do you have a high volume of test results to manage? Do you want to automatically use your allotted volume within your SaaS plan?

NeoLoad Web now allows rule-based deletion policies to be set at the workspace or test level to automatically keep only the results that are useful to you, avoiding time-consuming and error -prone maintenance tasks. To get started, go in your workspace settings and configure your first deletion policy.

Enhancements: Direct project export to NeoLoad Web

NeoLoad GUI can now directly export an optimized project file to an existing NeoLoad Web test to reduce the time and effort to test an updated project.

Tricentis qTest integration

We introduced a new option to create defects in qTest when NeoLoad SLAs are breached. The URL to qTest that is inserted in NeoLoad reports now targets the qTest test run.

Dynatrace integration enhancements

Dynamic monitoring now creates counters during a test to observe and optimize within auto-scaling systems. Now any change in the infrastructure under test is reflected in NeoLoad. For example, when a new container is started during a load test session, it will be added to NeoLoad, and in a case where the environment is sized down, the chart corresponding to the component (a Docker container) is stopped.

Other Dynatrace enhancements include an option to handle self-signed certificates for a Dynatrace instance deployed on-premises, and the ability to set a proxy specifically for the Dynatrace integration.

Proxy management in Neoload Web

You can declare a proxy in Neoload Web. This allows NeoLoad Web to connect the licensing platform to use VUH and to access the internet in a secured way.

Comparison in dashboards

Neoload Web now can compare up to four test results in a dashboard. A new wizard will help you to choose the type of report you’re looking for. Comparison Dashboards will use a specific layout to ease your analysis.

API improvement

In some rare cases NeoLoad Web was providing more information than the REST API. For example, shared transactions were only exposing one user path’s result.

Now, a new endpoint provides full results.


Secured project upload to support

NeoLoad now uses SFTP to secure the transfer of a project to the support team.
