When there's a high number of TPS I can achieve more transactions per seconds given the hyper-limitations.

The most valuable feature for us is the available information on the forums and to be able to discuss and get answers from the people that are involved in using this tool.

The features that I appreciate are quite basic. It is easy to ramp up the threads and start calling the application. A lot of connectors can already be found within Apache JMeter, but we are not using the entire set because the integration between the customers and platform is based on HTTP. We are just going to produce lots of HTTP sequences.

The most valuable feature in JMeter is the Thread Group, which helps us to see whether the performance is good.

Considering the kinds of tests we are performing here, where we launch several tests at the same time as a batch request, JMeter is not the best tool for the job. Those kinds of things could be done easily with other tools, like T6.

The solution could use some sort of educational features to offer tips and hints to help users navigate it better. They should improve the manuals and help files.

Currently, the integration pipeline is implemented by using Jenkins or a similar tool platform. These are continuous integration tools. As far as I know, integration is done by using custom scripts. It would be good if the integration with a continuous integration pipeline, like Jenkins or Hudson, can be done out of the box without using a script.
