PureLoad is a load testing tool that simulates thousands of users executing requests against server based applications. It can be used to verify that your application will meet the expected performance criteria. PureLoad reports quality and performance problems, as well as detailed statistics gathered during a load test. PureLoad also includes extensive support for easy recording and testing of Web-based applications. The HTTP Recorder ease the process of capturing HTTP and HTTPS requests into PureLoad scenarios. The Web Crawler is used to scan a static Web site for general errors, and it can also be used to generate PureLoad scenarios to be used in a load test.
PureAgent monitors response times from an agent to a server by replaying transactions at specified intervals. This includes static and dynamic Web applications as well as other server applications. Response times are collected and alarms can be sent if performance and availability goals are not fulfilled. The agent is managed using a standard Web browser. Using the browser, an administrator specifies transactions to run, intervals, alarm settings, etc.
PureTest is primarily targeted for function testing in the earlier phases of a development project. Even though it supports testing a variety of applications it is especially useful for debugging and snooping of Web applications. It includes a HTTP Recorder and Web Crawler which makes it useful for generic verification of HTTP requests and Web content checking.
