Before going live with a critical .NET application, it is important to load test. Setting up and executing a proper load test will allow you launch your application with confidence since you will have a very good sense of how it will perform when it is being used by a large number of users simultaneously. You will avoid performance issues that will lead to decreases in productivity that ultimately hit your bottom line.
Perhaps the most important part of a successful load test is the load tester that you choose to utilize. Selecting the right load tester can save you money and time that can be better invested elsewhere in your business. The wrong load tester can be a trap that sucks away money and resources.
Traditional load testers oftentimes become those kinds of traps. Traditional load testers are expensive both in upfront costs and in licensing and consulting fees that pop up while using them. They can take weeks or even months to set up and execute, which dramatically delays the launch of your applications. Even worse, many of them do not even give you the most valuable kind of data: that from the end user’s perspective.
This is where AppLoader shines. AppLoader strips away the inefficiencies of traditional load testers. There is no need for complex test scripts, special licenses and lengthy coding. You can literally set up tests in minutes, which is why AppLoader is affordable, fast and effective when compared to traditional load testers.
Unlike traditional load testers, you can quickly set up multiple tests with AppLoader that cut through the complexities of your .NET application and focus on specific components. By doing so, you can more efficiently identify where the bottlenecks are.
With AppLoader, you can obtain an accurate picture of the end-to-end performance of your .NET application. That picture will be from the end-user’s perspective, which is the most useful data that you can get on your application’s performance.
This data is presented as a graphical analysis that gives you the crucial information that you need to analyze the application’s performance. Unlike other load testers, whose results can be difficult to interpret, AppLoader presents you with straightforward, easy to understand, useful data that you can apply immediately.
Load testing does not have to be the drain on time and resources that it is oftentimes portrayed as being. If you select the right load tester, properly plan your load test and sensibly execute it, then your investment will ultimately pay for itself. You will be able to take full advantage of the complexity and multi-vendor .NET applications on the market today for greater productivity and more satisfied customers.
