2019 is around the corner. It is expected that a new technology will start to emerge or get added to the old one. Same is the case of software testing, especially performance testing tools
so it’s important that we stay updated about them in 2019.
Let’s have a look
WebLOAD is a load and performance testing tool specifically designed for web applications.
Rated enterprise-grade, the tool is every enterprise first choice to complex testing requirements.
Flexibility and ease of use are among the two important strengths of the tool.
Furthermore, WebLOAD also supports over a hundred technologies from web protocols to enterprise applications.
StresStimulus is a strong performance testing tool because it addresses application scenarios that are difficult to test with other tools.
It records user actions and replays them in order to emulate variable usage patterns. Additionally, it also monitors load impacts and fixes playback errors.
A Java platform application, Apache JMeter can be integrated with the test plan.
Though the tool was initially designed for testing just web applications, its scope has been widened recently. Nevertheless, it works only under UNIX and Window OS.
LoadUI Pro made it to this list because it is the best tool that could create script less and sophisticated load tests in the shortest time.
Detailed reports can be accessed, and load tests automated on Bamboo, Jenkins, TFS, or any other automation frameworks.
Moreover, functional tests from SoapUI can be quickly converted into load tests using LoadUI Pro.
Load View is a cloud-based performance testing tools that make use of real browsers to run a performance test on websites as well as web applications.
The test results are made available as real-time online graphs. Furthermore, tasks for simple calls to download content as well as a complex interaction that stimulates user interaction can be performed using Load View.
The Rational performance tester is the right option for building an efficient error-free cloud computing service.
The tool can be used for both server-based applications and web applications.
Developed by IBM, the automated testing tool comes in many versions.
An innovative performance testing tool, NeoLoad automates test design, maintenance, and analysis for DevOps, as well as Agile teams.
In order to support performance testing across the life cycle – the tool integrates with continuous delivery pipelines.
WAPT, the abbreviated form of Web Application Performance Tool is a tool designed specifically for websites and internet applications.
Other than measuring the performance of web interfaces, it also enables the user to run performance tests under different load conditions and environment.
Nonetheless, the system requires Windows OS.
This tool is a performance testing version of Loadrunner.
It lowers the cost of distributed load testing and reduces the risks of deploying systems which don’t meet performance requirements.
With effective tool utilization tracking, HP Performance Tester predicts the system capacity to lower the hardware and software costs.
This testing tool is mainly used in cloud-based services as it aids in website optimization and improving the performance of web applications.
It also brings in traffic to the website by stimulating users to determine the amount of stress and load the website can work efficiently at.
Furthermore, the system works well on both Windows OS and LINUX.
Rated enterprise-class, Silk Performer is capable of testing multiple applications in different environments that holds thousands of simultaneous users.
Moreover, the tool also supports a wide array of protocols. Lastly, Controllers or Individual protocols require no License, and it is customer friendly to use.
We had talked about JMeter earlier, and SmartMeter.io is an alternative to it.
This tool enables users to perform test scenario creation with scripts and excels in test reporting.
GUI tests can be run with real-time results.
An easy to use and affordable performance testing tool, LoadComplete creates and executes realistic tests for both web apps and websites.
The system requires a 64-bit operating system to work like Windows XP Professional or Windows 7.
Furthermore, it also provides detailed reports and metrics which help gain in-depth insights.
AppLoader is specifically designed for business applications as it would allow you to test applications by replicating the same user experience from all access points.
When a user uses the application, the scripts are generated automatically which can be further edited without coding.
Regular updates and a strong support is an additional advantage of the AppLoader.
Testing Anywhere is an automatic tool which works well in the case of websites, web applications, and other objects.
The tool is mainly used by developers to find bottlenecks in web applications.
Considered powerful, it takes just 5 steps to create a test. The tool is compatible with all versions of Windows OS.
This desktop-based advanced HTTP testing tool records scripts which are easy to use.
In order to validate the response, the scripts could be modified using the GUI.
After the execution of the tests, reports are generated for analysis. Loadster system requires a Windows 7/Vista/XP to work on.
Also known as ManageEngine, is a widely used automated testing tool.
This tool performs remote tests on web services from any geographical location.
Alongside, it also offers other testing options such as functional testing, stress testing, load testing etc.
CloudTest test websites, APIs, mobile apps and more. The cloud platform could be literally used as a virtual testing lab where developers can carry out tests in a cost-effective way.
Though the services are not free and the price differs according to the number of load injectors required, the trial version with a power of 100 concurrent users is still available for free.
OpenSTA is the abbreviated form of Open System Testing Architecture.
It is a GUI based tool and is believed to be comparatively complex than the other tools present in this list.
The results and statistics are taken through a number of tests to carry out the test successfully. Nonetheless, the tool is completely free to use.
Being the first unified test automation platform, this tool erases the redundancies by unifying tests.
It offers complete integration with Rally, Jenkins, Hudson, Jira, and Bamboo.
Lastly, it also reduces cost and allows the team to work together and collaborate.
