What is most valuable?

The ease of use is the solution's most valuable feature. Also, the ability to easily create test cases is also very good. It's easy to just ramp up on the solution.

What needs improvement?

The solution is new to us. I'm not sure if we're using the full capabilities of the solution yet, but from what we have used, we're quite satisfied. In future releases, it would be helpful if there was an integration with ALM Octane.

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

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.

What other advice do I have?

We are using the on-premises deployment model. The advice I would give to others would be to look at your requirements and decide if the solution is right for you. For us, it was API testing and JMeter is very good for this. I'd rate this… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before we chose JMeter, we looked at NeoLoad, but it looked to have the same issues surrounding licensing that LoadRunner did.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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

What do you think of Apache JMeter?

What is our primary use case?

This is a cost-effective tool, which provides people the ability to do POCs without worrying about costs.

How has it helped my organization?

Apache JMeter provided us with the opportunity to test applications for clients who did not have the budget to employ heavy-duty tools like LoadRunner. Additionally, due to ease of installation, it can be installed in any client network, without the requirement for port opening.

What is most valuable?

API testing, Database Testing, and MQ testing can be done with ease.

What needs improvement?

The tool should be made a bit more robust, and better support should be made available.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for two years.
