Apache JMeter Previous Solutions

We sometimes use LoadRunner for various purposes but currently, we use JMeter 80% of the time because LoadRunner's CPU consumption becomes very high for TPS more than 5000. Also, LoadRunner is not free so we have to pay for the license. We're using it for very few projects now. JMeter can easily achieve a high TPS but LoadRunner has a lot of high-resource requirements. LoadRunner's advantage is that the output report is very comprehensive. JMeter reports are only good for the people who understand the detailed logs. Out-of-box, LoadRunner has nice reports and ease of execution. In JMeter, it's also simple but requires some online training or knowledge on the loader and the setup. View full review »

We have used LoadUI and SmartBear with tools like Selenium. Some of the developers, at that time, were used to JMeter and they introduced it. It is a very nice tool. View full review »

I've used LoadRunner in the past, among other solutions. I switched to Apache because it is free. Other tools are much too expensive and can cost up to $50,000 a year if you are looking at commercial options. Now Neoload probably the best one (better than Load runner as per my subjective perception) but it's a way too costly View full review »

We also use Postman and when it comes to making a very large request, it is the better option. It is also a user-friendly solution and you do not have to go through a lot of documents to start using it. JMeter works better for iterative testing. View full review »

I have also started working with BlazeMeter. One of the differences is that the automation is not possible in BlazeMeter. However, BlazeMeters allows for the selection of different bandwidths, it takes less time to write tests, and it is more user-friendly. View full review »

We previously used LoadRunner. We decided to switch because on LoadRunner scaling up was a problem. We needed licenses to do so and it was becoming a problem for us to simulate the number of users we were expecting. View full review »
