NeoLoad 4.1 launched!
NeoLoad users will be as excited as I am about the launch of NeoLoad 4.1, just out this week. The new version contains a ton of new features and improvements but there are a few that really stand out:
- You will now be able to performance test ANY kind of mobile application. With NeoLoad 4.1's new tunneling mode, application traffic can now be recorded from any mobile device, even those without proxy configurations and even those that are native mobile applications.
- NeoLoad 4.1 adds the ability to simulate network latency and packet loss to network traffic, allowing you to create even more realistic scenarios. Since network conditions can have a serious impact on response time and server scalability, introducing latency and packet loss is a huge step forward in emulating realistic conditions. This feature is built into the NeoLoad infrastructure and comes without additional cost.
- If your organization is implementing (or thinking about implementing) Google’s new SPDY (speedy) technology, NeoLoad 4.1 becomes the first load testing tool to support this. You will be able to validate your server infrastructure before deploying SPDY as well as investigate the impact that SPDY has on your application’s performance, and the servers’ scalability. Google's SPDY protocol has been adopted by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) for use in the forthcoming HTTP 2.0 standard. Google uses SPDY widely and has in the past said SPDY improves page load times by 15 per cent, and was designed to halve the time needed to load a page.
- A new monitoring module allows you to import monitoring data from external sources. This helps eliminate the firewall implications that are sometimes faced when the application’s infrastructure is on the opposite side of a firewall from NeoLoad. Data can be collected on servers using other monitoring tools and then imported into the NeoLoad results engine and investigated just as any other monitored data collected by NeoLoad.
