Would Neoload be able to facilitate DHCP stress testing?

We would like to simulate load on a DHCP server with multiple clients obtaining an IP address. How could Neoload be used for this type of test?

Neoload wouldn't be suited to this kind of testing, it could be used as a test harness driving programs that obtain IP addresses but how those programs pretend to be computers/devices I don't know

Hi Paul,

DHCP testing is not natively supported by NeoLoad, but you can develop a custom Action to handle it.

You need an Enterprise license or a Professional with Integration & Advanced Usage.

Then, you can write a custom action that picks arguments from the NeoLoad GUI then run the DHCP query (you can use a Java library like dhcp4java) and return the results back to NeoLoad for the analysis.
