Faster design of the painful task of correlating dynamic parameters with:
Pre-defined rules for the most common frameworks: .Net, JSF, Oracle E-Business, Siebel, and more
Automatic detection and handling of application-specific parameters
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 Tosca functional tests into performance tests
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.
Automatic script update
Performance test automation
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.
SOAP / REST support
Assisted design with Swagger/Open API import and highly efficient extractors for fast test design and fewer errors in scripting
The API test cases can be created from NeoLoad GUI for the best efficiency, or from a YAML descriptor, to ease the collaboration and allow a simple text file edition
Test standalone APIs or APIs within end-to-end tests. Same solution, same skills
Devs, QA, PO, Ops share a common view of API performance
Performance test as code for automation
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.
Performance test analysis
Real-time test results
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.
APM integration: Dynatrace, AppDynamics, New Relic
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.
SLA and thresholds
Automatic pass/fail performance SLA validation enables you validate every build.
Performance test in the cloud
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.
Performance test collaboration
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.
Version control with GIT & SVN
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.
