Hardware requirements differ widely from one test to another. The greater the stress placed on the web server, the greater the demand placed on hardware resources by the Load Generator. Furthermore, requirements increase with the complexity of the scenario. Additional Load Generators may be used to further increase the load.

During the test, the Load Generator CPU and memory usage is monitored in the Runtime screen. If the CPU or memory usage level regularly exceeds 90%, either the number of Virtual Users must be reduced, or the think time between pages increased. Alternatively, additional Load Generators may be used.

Screen resolution

A minimum of 1024x768 pixel is required for screen resolution.

As 4K has become the new high-resolution norm, NeoLoad on-screen items may become very small, which makes them extremely hard to see and use. You can change the DPI settings in Windows for yourself and the current program, or, if you're an Administrator, you can change the system settings for all users.
