This video shows you how you can create system load via the UI with the QF-Test Demo test-suite for monitoring and measuring real end-to-end times as well as user acceptance times and ressources needed.

Further information

  • The application is stressed/set under load. Many simultaneous/synchronized actions test the application's load limit. QF‑Test's special characteristic is that load tests are executed via the graphical interface (User/transaction via QF-Test in their own user sessions) and not evitably protocol based
  • The detection of non functional errors is possible: e.g. response time, simulated live operation, stability of server/client environment. Supplement to functional oriented tests.
  • You can create load tests out of functional components (QF-Test is primarly a functional GUI testing tool), so you can reuse existing steps
  • Checking the client's side hardware dimensions is possible. Alternatives: via virtual computers/desktops, cloud based solutions, dockers/ containers.
  • QF-Test can be combined with many other tools, so that load is generated: Tools like JMeter, JUnit as well as specialized load test tools like NeoLoad (a protocol based tool for web), Loadrunner from hp, Gatling, Silkperformer, Scapa TPP etc.
  • Technical details and implementation of QF-Test load tests are documented in the manual. An easy scenario and example of implementation is delivered in the QF-Test installation.
  • For the execution of load tests (also for higher numbers) cost-effective runtime licenses can be purchased or leased (subscription licensing) for a determined period of time.

Practical examples: QF-Test in use

Mrs Weiß of Münchener Verein, Munich, Germany: „When the cost-benefit-analysis in a project doesn't recommend an extensive load tests, the existing QF-Test automted tests are started manually or time-controlled as a batch-job on 20 virtual machines at MÜNCHENER VEREIN insurance group. So that load is created on the application and a statement concerning performance is possible."

Load tests with QF‑Test in the web area

Connection to highly specialised commercial tools:

  • NeoLoad by Tricentis (former Neotys)
  • Loadrunner by hp
  • Silkperformer
  • Scapa TP

As well as open source tools:

  • JMeter
  • Gatling

QF-Test's focus is the web interface, NeoLoad's focus are the Backend systems and network level.

  • Regression tests created via QF-Test can still be used in NeoLoad as load tests, stress tests and performance tests.
  • In the web area such tests are executed on network protocol level, this means without graphical presentation in the browser. NeoLoad converts these QF-Test regression tests into web load tests.
  • Muth Partners has creaetd a special software interface to integrate existing QF-Test scripts.

Advantages of load tests with both tools

  • These NeoLoad load tests contain a a metric of end user experience for new analysis possibilities.
  • Automated import from QF-Test to NeoLoad to a great extend.
  • Recognition possible via names of sequences and transactions
