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®

  • 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))
