What is Eggplant Performance?
eggPlant Performance provides sophisticated performance testing and load testing tools that can test the widest range of technology and can scale up to simulate any load you need, but are still easy-to-use. eggPlant Performance has been designed to cleanly manage the difficult stuff so you spend more of your time looking at what really matters – improving the user experience of your application. It ensures that your cloud and server based applications will continue to work, perform, and provide an excellent user experience with hundreds or thousands of simultaneous users. eggPlant Performance consists of three main components: Studio, Test Controller, and Analyzer. Studio is used to create the different components of a load test (including scripts, test data, test definitions, and monitoring targets). Test Controller is used subsequently to execute the tests and monitor them during runtime. Analyzer is then used to view completed test runs and their results, as well as generate a wide variety of charts and tables to analyze the data. eggPlant Performance supports a variety of virtual user types for different automation options, depending on the performance or load testing requirements and objectives. — Web HTPP/S: For protocol-level web scripting — Rich clients/UI-based: This includes Citrix VUs (for automating any desktop app published over Citrix), eggPlant Functional VUs (for integration with TestPlant’s functional UI testing tool), WinDriver VUs(for driving the interface of any Windows-based rich client application through a combination of object- and image-based approaches), Selenium VUs (for automating the user experience of browsers). — TCP/UDP: For recording network traffic

Performance Testing Manager at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Excellent and personal customer service yet debugging needs improvement

What is most valuable?

Generation Rules wizard for correlations.

What needs improvement?

Correlation that is automated. All-in-one script development and script management interface. Currently, you have to flip between Visual Studio and Eggplant Studio. Debugging needs to be improved to include logging of certain items, including response times, line numbers, correlation, and parameter substitutions, etc. When running a test through the controller, you cannot drill down to a specific Vuser log for a specific script with line numbers, parameter/correlation substitutions, etc. Script readability - Subrequests are not nested under main request, but relegated to the end of the script for all requests. Ability to auto generate script from SOAP, WSDL, REST imports.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Yes. Bugs occur fairly frequently, but they are very responsive in identifying them and scheduling them for fixes in future releases.
