Apache JMeter Review

A free solution that's stable and easy to use

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for performance download testing.

What is most valuable?

It's a solution that's easy to use. It's a bit different from SoapUI and LoadUI.

What needs improvement?

The user interface is a little bit tricky.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for three to four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's not 100% scalable like LoadUI, but LoadUI is very expensive. We're an outsourcing company, so we have approximately ten users. We may have plans to expand in the future.

How are customer service and technical support?

The solution doesn't have technical support. If we need answers, we look for them on the internet.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we used the basic version of LoadUI. We switched because LoadUI is very expensive and Apache JMeter is free.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex. We did have it done in a day. It took approximately one hour. We have about five to six people that manage the solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is free. You don't need to worry about licensing costs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate other options before choosing this solution.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the private cloud version of the solution.

I would rate this solution eight out of ten. If it had a bit of a better user interface, I would rate it higher.
