Customers tell us time and again, the reason they chose NeoLoad is because of its ease of use, speed to create and maintain tests, and scalability. Here are the NeoLoad features that make that happen.
RealBrowser adds powerful browser-based features to NeoLoad’s already innovative protocol-based testing capabilities. By reducing the technical expertise required to test dynamic custom web and cloud-native applications, users can leverage RealBrowser to easily scale their performance engineering practice into Agile and DevOps teams and cover more applications, at an accelerated pace.
Support front-end and back-end testing with both browser-based and protocol-based approaches from within the same solution and the same interface, reducing the learning curve and increasing the ability to deliver performance results.
RealBrowser is built on modern, efficient technology, consuming roughly 30% fewer memory and CPU resources than legacy browser-based testing tools.
RealBrowser leverages the same user interface and design features NeoLoad customers are accustomed to. This simple no-code/low-code approach with powerful record/play capabilities allows non-experts to quickly design performance scenarios, while still providing performance experts all capabilities and metrics they would expect from a flagship solution.
With RealBrowser, you can now rapidly create performance tests in minutes, and provide meaningful performance test results back to the development team within hours of a build being completed.
Faster design of the painful task of correlating dynamic parameters with:
NeoLoad aims to bridge the gap between Dev and QA by enabling DevOps teams to design and run performance tests as code (YAML) with their everyday development tool/IDE or CLI. Test as code and code-less testing let any user harness all the scalability, and test results analysis power, that are solution hallmarks.
NeoLoad provides SOAP/Web Services support with options for REST and WSDL API testing. NeoLoad enables you to easily import Swagger/OpenAPI file or URL to quickly get a NeoLoad performance test scenario that matches the API definitions.
Convert existing functional test scripts to performance test scripts to accelerate performance test design and maintenance. NeoLoad converts Tricentis Tosca and Selenium functional tests into performance test scripts.
Collaborate across dev, QA, operations, and business teams to create a standardized performance testing approach throughout your enterprise. Regardless of skill set, users can define SLAs, share test assets, and review results while the test is running and after it completes.
Test earlier in the application lifecycle by testing at the API level.
NeoLoad supports both graphical and code-based approaches to performance engineering: create, define settings, and run performance tests as code using a YAML-based description format which is human readable, implementation agnostic, and domain specific to load testing. It’s great for developers, performance engineers, and business experts to collaborate on SLOs (Service Level Objectives), environment details such as service endpoint details, and load testing details such as ramp-up semantics.
Overriding a NeoLoad Project: NeoLoad provides the unique capability to override a GUI-based Project with a YAML text file so that it’s easy to set any environment contextual settings in an automated process.
100% YAML-based projects: An alternative is to create a 100% YAML-based project to define your API test.
NeoLoad supports Jenkins Pipeline as Code.
Analyze your test results live so you can react rapidly to an anomaly before the test is over. And leverage in-depth test reporting when the test is completed.
NeoLoad supports the monitoring of a broad range of infrastructure technologies including operating systems, application servers, web servers, databases, and network devices. See more technologies.
Integrate with JMeter and Gatling
Make better use of early development performance tests from tools like JMeter and Gatling by ingesting and centralizing all executed test results in NeoLoad and leveraging NeoLoad’s substantially more robust analysis capabilities.
Integrate with Dynatrace, AppDynamics, New Relic, and Datadog
Collect performance metrics at the application components level to dive deeper into the performance load test analysis. Combining information obtained from performance testing (NeoLoad) with in-depth metrics from an application performance management tool helps accelerate the identification of root cause in highly complex applications.
Automatic pass/fail performance SLA validation enables you validate every build.
Built directly into NeoLoad, choose from over 70 on-demand locations from seven different providers so that you never have to run the risk of testing from within the same data center as your infrastructure.
Controller and LoadGenerator Docker images are provided on DockerHub to ease the deployment of NeoLoad in a Docker-based environment.
NeoLoad natively interacts with container orchestrators such as Kubernetes, OpenShift, Microsoft AKS, Amazon EKS, and Google GKE to provision and use load testing infrastructure automatically, on demand. Controllers and load generators are spun up for the duration of the test and released once the test is finished. No need to write lengthy scripts to provision machines, manually connect dynamic testing resources to CI pipelines, or manually change the number of load generators used for a test.
Define and run your tests on NeoLoad’s centralized test infrastructure. Collaborate with everyone involved in NeoLoad performance test execution or analysis (i.e., testers, developers, QA managers, business stakeholders/product owners). NeoLoad is available through a SaaS-based deployment.
Reserve load testing infrastructure (i.e., controllers and load generators) and virtual users by date and duration to guarantee resources are dedicated for application performance testing for a specific team or team member and avoid testing schedule conflicts among the teams.
Manage and share test versions in Git or SVN. NeoLoad provides native integration for both standards to improve collaboration using the same corporate shared tools.
For the most real-world simulated mobile and web applications tests, NeoLoad emulates users accessing the server with varying bandwidths, latency, and packet loss with preconfigured values for varying signal strengths of 3G, 4G, WiFi, and more.
