Neotys releases NeoLoad 1.0, a load-testing tool


News: Neotys releases NeoLoad 1.0, a load-testing tool

  1. Neotys has released NeoLoad 1.0, a commercial Java-based load testing tool. By simulating a large number of users accessing your application, NeoLoad tests the robustness and the performance of the server under different loads. A test report can help pinpoint errors and bottlenecks.

    NeoLoad attempts to help answer the following questions:

    • Is the application working properly?
    • How many users does the site handle?
    • Will the site crash under load?
    • What are the application response times?
    Key features:
    • Browser based recorder - Simply browse your application to record your scenario
    • System Monitoring - Get statistics from your servers (CPU usage, memory, etc)
    • Data replacement - Log in the virtual users with different accounts, submit forms changing the values
    • Data extraction - Extract generated links and forms
    • Content validation - Perform basic functional testing under load
    • Reporting - Generate a test report (HTML/PDF/XML)
    • SSL - Record and replay secured pages.
    • IP Spoofing - Mandatory to test IP based load balancers
    NeoLoad is multi-platform (Windows, Linux, Solaris) and can generate a large amount of traffic by using additional load generators.

    NeoLoad can be downloaded or purchased from Neotys' web site:

  2. Looks very nice[ Go to top ]

    I can't help but notice the similarities between their UI and JMeter's UI (though neotys' is much prettier). It makes me go "hmmmm".

    Do we have a case of proprietary software copying open-source?
  3. looks nice[ Go to top ]

    Looking at the online demo, it looks like Neotys has done their home work. From the short demo, it looks like NeoLoad takes the best ideas from Mercury, Rational, Testmaker, jmeter and others. It's a bit expensive, but no where near as expensive as Mercury.

  4. IPSpoofing How to do?[ Go to top ]

    They do IP Spoofing for load test. Do they use JNI to do the same?
