Affordable yet Powerful Load Testing Solution, LoadComplete 4.4 Delivers Power of the Cloud
SOMERVILLE, Mass. — September 08, 2016 —
SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for teams, released improvements to LoadComplete, the leading performance and load testing tool for web applications and sites.
Load testing is typically performed using multiple transactions depicting different usages through the application under test. With LoadComplete 4.4, users can now view the performance of individual transactions in real time as the application is being load tested. This allows for the detection of errors and degradations for particular use cases under stress. Additionally, LoadComplete has expanded support to include load generation from all regions on Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). SmartBear continues to make investments to deliver an easy to use load testing solution while remaining cost-effective.
“As test teams increasingly shoulder the added responsibility of carrying out load testing in a rapid development and delivery setting, they need an easy-to-use platform to detect problems quickly,” said Anand Sundaram, Vice President of Products, Performance Testing and Monitoring. “With this release, LoadComplete provides additional insights in real time to help identify issues before the application goes live.”
Load generation using cloud based instances allows organizations to generate massive amounts of load without complex setup and by avoiding the expenses associated with setting up and owning load testing labs. It also allows for the elastic generation of additional load to simulate traffic spikes with relative ease. LoadComplete customers can now access all Amazon EC2 regions for load generation.
LoadComplete is a desktop tool for load, stress and scalability testing of websites and web applications. Designed from the ground up to help users focus on the tasks at hand, LoadComplete does not require advanced programming skills. It works with both traditional HTML websites and Rich Internet Applications using modern web technologies like AJAX, ASP.NET, Java, Flash, Flex and Silverlight. The “record and playback” and “visual programming” features enable the creation of powerful and flexible first load test within a few seconds. LoadComplete enables testers to generate load from virtual machines, on premise computers or the cloud. Customized reports in LoadComplete help users to get end-to-end visibility and find problems at both client and server side.
