What do you like best?

I like best how quickly we are able to test complex use cases scenarios for load testing, identify bottlenecks and fix them. We were in a great hurry and without a lot of experience with Performance Testing. The customer support is great, there isn't a single question or issue we had, that wasn't quickly resolved by support. As a DevOps engineer, I really like that our Manual QA can easily create complex use cases/ scripts by simply recording the use cases, without any need to know how to code - it saves me a lot of time not to have to create those scripts and scenarios myself, plus I get the inputs of the product / business analysts side which is key for making sure I test the right stuff. The correlation, answer validation and parameterization is done automatically with almost no need for intervention by me. When I do need to change the script I can easily do so directly in the code (JavaScript). The reports and analytics are excellent and save a lot of time and money by identifying bottlenecks and what we can do to fix them. We ruled out many (expensive) options that we thought could fix our bottleneck, but after testing with WebLOAD we realized these fixes won't solve our root problem - thus saving us a lot of money moving to more expensive infrastructure unnecessarily. I love how WebLOAD integrates with Amazon AWS so I can on demand deploy the load generators simulating as many concurrent users as needed without having to buy expensive hardware - this is really cool.

What do you dislike?

I didn't like that my license is tied to one specific computer.

I sometime work on multiple computers and this is limiting for me.

I understand I could have opted for a SaaS version of WebLOAD or a floating license which I will probably do.

I recommend for new users to check out the SaaS version of WebLOAD from start. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

1. Don't hesitate to contact support also for things related to Performance Engineering expertise (and not just the product) - they are extremely helpful and happy to teach and help - this can save you a lot of time and money.

2. Make sure to use WebOAD's amazing correlation engine , parameterization and answer validation. You may be surprised how many tests have "passed" that are actually just hitting the cache etc.

3. Check out the floating license and / or SaaS version of WebLOAD Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an eLearning site, we experienced a huge spike in usage once everyone moved to distance learning due to Corona. We were sure we could handle the traffic but ran into bottlenecks. We quickly looked for Load Testing solutions and tried JMeter because it's free. The problem was that they didn't really have support and even though we had someone who was an expert in Jmeter to help us, we quickly saw that it couldn't solve our problems. We couldn't really simulate the real complex user scenarios with this tool, and it required a lot of technical expertise. Also the reporting was signficantly lacking - it was very hard to keep track of our results and compare between them. At the end of the day, we couldn't answer the basic questions of how many concurrent users can we now support with these scenarios/ scripts and with this and that infrastructure. We then checked out a few other professional enterprise grade tools and chose WebOAD. Thanks to WebLOAD and the excellent customer service we were able to pinpoint our bottlenecks and fix them. Since we have been makingcontinuous improvements and validating each time that our performance is improving and definitely not deteriorating. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We are just beginning to use WebLOAD. Richard J. from customer support responded to my request. He provided both answers and more importantly education about how to use WebLOAD recorder and console. Using webLOAD gives us valuable insight into bottle necks and robustness of our products. Thank you Richard for the guidance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Finding useful examples of how to use WebLOAD for API testing is challenging. I would like to see more scripting examples of how to use WebLOAD. Also so may different files, configuration settings and it is unclear what each type of file does and whether we need to save them all. Quick start for different scenarios would be userful.

Webload lets you do anything you want. I used many tools in the past, and in all of the you reach a point that you feel you are stuck. In webload JavaScript helps me code anything, and with their Java I can do even more. I am doing projects for companies, and I can test anything with it.

Faster creating scripts. Their correlation Engine, is really the best out there. it may need tweaks from time to time, but it can find values that other tools do not. At the end of the day.

The dashboard and reports are also great tools. You have a good list of predefined report and web dashboard, that helped a lot, when I worked with other people.

Price/Performance - this is really the best tool out there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is no record/replay support for Citrix in webload. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The price is amazing when you see the list of capabilities you get.

1. The Flexibility is great.

2. Reports and Dashboard.

3. Many integrations Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was testing with webload web application, DB, and a few protocols that were developed in-house. I could do it all either with http, DB protocols, and for the in-house protocols I used their Java integration. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I might be perceived as an "old school" engineer, but I could not implement DevOps methodologies without making sure that the system goes through performance testing before it goes into production. I evaluated many load testing products that offer testing in continuous mode, but none do actually do it in a way that will be truly automatic.

Webload was the only one I found that does automatic load testing without requiring the involvement of an engineer in the analysis of the results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
