Pros
"We have a centralized delivery team and we are able to meet enterprise requirements, which include different types of protocols that are involved, including scripting. The technology supports that and enables us to have a wider range of testing. Enterprise-level testing is something that we are satisfied with.""The solution is a very user-friendly tool, especially when you compare it to a competitor like BlazeMeter.""I think the number one feature everybody likes is the capability to easily generate virtual users as well as the reporting.""One of the most valuable features of this solution is recording and replaying, and the fact that there are multiple options available to do this.""The most valuable part of the product is the way you can scale the basic testing easily.""Micro Focus LoadRunner Enterprise Is very user-friendly.""This is a product that has a lot of capabilities and is the most mature tool of its kind in the market."

"I feel that the codeless part, the dynamic value capture part is quite easy in NeoLoad compared to other tools.""The most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to.""It offered us an easy to use, limited code option for end-to-end performance testing.""The licensing cost is very less for NeoLoad. It is user-friendly and easy to understand because they have created so many useful functionalities. When I started working with this tool, we just had to do the initial assessment about whether this tool will be able to support our daily work or not. I could easily understand it. I didn't have to search Google or watch YouTube videos. In just 15 to 20 minutes, I was able to understand the tool.""The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good.""Very easy to use the front end and the UI is very good.""The test cases are quite easy to build and to maintain. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us. It's the reason why they changed from JMeter to NeoLoad.""The stability is okay."

Cons
"Micro Focus needs to improve in terms of support. With the same support plan but when the product was owned by HP, support was more responsive and better coordinated.""It's not that popular on the cloud.""The reporting has room for improvement.""It would be good if we could look forward at the future technology needs we have. I would like to see Micro Focus provide more customer awareness around how LoadRunner can fulfill requirements with Big Data use cases, for example, where you do performance testing at the scale of data lakes... when it comes to technologies our company has yet to adopt, I would like to see an indication from Micro Focus of how one does performance testing and what kinds of challenges can we foresee. Those kinds of studies would really help us.""Third-party product integrations could be a little more slickly handled.""The solution is a very expensive tool when compared with other tools.""The TruClient protocol works well but it takes a lot of memory to run those tests, which is something that can be improved."

More Micro Focus LoadRunner Enterprise Cons →

"LoadRunner supports multiple protocols, whereas NeoLoad supports only three protocols. With NeoLoad, we can go for the SAP technology, web-based HTTP, and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). If I have to simulate .NET application-based traffic, I won't be able to do that. So, protocol support is a limitation for NeoLoad. It should support more protocols.""I would like to see support for auto-correlations.""We would like NeoLoad to be able to support more protocols. Testing can also be a little tricky at times.""The SAP area could be improved.""Most people focus on HTTPS or TCP, but it would be good to have support for a variety of different protocols.""Support wasn't able to solve a technical issue.""Sometimes it's complicated to maintain the test cases. It's much easier than in JMeter, however. I'm not sure if this depends so much on NeoLoad, or is more based on the environment that we are testing.""LoadRunner offers a full protocol, whereas, with this product, only a few of the protocols are supported - not all."
