Published by Itexis, AppsLoad ® is a user perception-based load testing software
A new approach :
Anticipates application performance problems based on user perspective
Simulates the behavior of any application chain in charge (client / server, Citrix / TS, web client, etc.)
identifies bottlenecks (number of users, number of applications, LAN / WAN, etc.)
AppsLoad has been tested on Windows 2008 R2, Windows 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 (32 or 64 bit)
AppsLoad®is certified and
Advantages of AppsLoad®
RESULTS ARE EASY TO READ AND INTERPRET
All the active elements of the delivery chain are used as they would be during production
The behavior of the delivery chain in charge is perfectly anticipated. There is no surprise in the production environment.
Possibility of correlating the number of simultaneous users with the performance of the target machines in the same graph
Optimization of the application’s parameters to get the best compromise using a “what if” approach
Simple and immediate graph analysis
AppsLoad provides the following statistics aggregate: Number of competing users; average response time against reference response time, maximum deviation, standard deviation as well as the number iterations during load testing.
Measures taken by AppsLoad are pushed in the performance Microsoft monitor in order to correlatethe AppsLoad aggregates and the performance counters of such target machines as CPU and memory
A new approach
AppsLoad is able to simulate user actions (mouse movements, keyboard signals, etc..) and calculate any deviation in application response time against the time of reference.
AppsLoad’s algorithms are capable of continually scrutinizing the graphic interface so that it will be in perfect sync with the application that is being tested.
In a nutshell
Simple and fast learning curve (scenario recording just like an Excel macro recording)
No skill necessary : all the intelligence is carried out via IA and shape recognition
Measures application response time from the graphic interface (what we are measuring is what the user sees)
No code is installed on the application servers (no “pollution » of server performance))
