Easy to navigate and offers reasonable pricing but needs grouping features

Pros and Cons

  • "The stability is good."
  • "The should be some visibility into load testing. I'd like to capture items via snapshots."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for performance testing. 

What is most valuable?

The solution is easy to navigate. 

The testing it offers is very useful and compatible with many platforms.

We don't have to maintain any infrastructure, as that is already provided by BlazeMeter. 

The real user monitoring feature is great.

I like that you can integrate JMeter script into the solution and run your load while testing a number of users.

The solution easily runs with end-user experience monitoring and you can run scripts right in the solution. 

The initial setup is pretty straightforward. 

The stability is good. 

The solution can scale. 

We have found the technical support to be quite helpful.

The pricing is quite reasonable.

What needs improvement?

We have already provided some sort of feedback for our BlazeMeter vendor who is directly interacting with us. We would like, for example, for there to be some sort of grouping features available. 

The should be some visibility into load testing. I'd like to capture items via snapshots. 

While they are in the cloud, it would be good to also offer on-premises options. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for about ten years. It's been about a decade. We've used it for a while. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We've found the stability to be reliable. We're not running into any performance issues at all. There are no bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We are planning to scale up to more BlazeMeter products very soon. You can scale it well. We want to scale up to ten products a month.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has been very good so far. They are helpful and responsive. We are satisfied with the assistance overall.

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

We also use LoadRunner.

How was the initial setup?

The solution is very straightforward to implement. It's not overly complex or difficult. 

The deployment only takes one week or so. 

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

The pricing of the solution is pretty good. It's not overly expensive.

We pay to license the solution every year. There are many types of license models. We have chosen the UH license model for which we pay every year.

What other advice do I have?

We're a customer and an end-user.

I'd advise a company considers multiple technologies to support its goals. 

I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Provides great flexibility and we can run executions from multiple locations

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution offers flexibility with its configurations."
  • "Lacks an option to include additional users during a test run."

What is our primary use case?

I mainly use BlazeMeter for scripting. I have a performance testing background, and can directly record my workload with the help of a BlazeMeter plugin. Once I've recorded I can modify a couple of enhancements. I can design my signature in BlazeMeter and choose multiple dedicated IPs, depending on our load. We are system integrators and I'm a senior engineer. 

What is most valuable?

Providing the Cloud load generator is a good feature. We can run executions from multiple locations. Very few tools provide that. They have recently started with separate API testing. I haven't had a chance to use that yet but it might be very helpful. The solution offers flexibility with its configurations, taking around two to five minutes each. You can see the metrics in a graphical view while running the tests. Response times are also visible and can filter whatever we need and get the results of error loads. 

What needs improvement?

Documentation for the solution could be improved because there are some areas, such as licensing costs, where there is a lack of information regarding structure. I'd also like the ability to see a comparison feature after carrying out several tests. I'd like to know the difference in terms of response times and other details. That would be a great feature for them to provide. 

Sometimes we'd like to include additional users during a test run to check application sustainability. We can do it from a scripting end but it would be great if BlazeMeter would provide the option of adding a few more users while running a test.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for five years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good. 

How are customer service and technical support?

If there are issues I update it in a chat and the technical support creates a ticket ID for follow-up. Sometimes they respond very quickly and other times they are very slow at resolving the issue. Response times are inconsistent. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is relatively straightforward and user-friendly. We have less than 50 users, we don't do any load tests.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend BlazeMeter because of the accuracy of the results. 

I rate the solution eight out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Great performance testing and API Mocking with reliable stability

Pros and Cons

  • "It supports any number of features and has a lot of tutorials."
  • "The reporting capabilities could be improved."

What is most valuable?

I like the BlazeMeter extension. It is a very good expansion. With it, you can record any type of performance script scenario, and you can generate in a JMeter script, Selenium, et cetera. That is a very good feature. 

If you want to do that, it is used mostly on performance testing, API Mocking, et cetera. The API Mocking capabilities are great.

For performance, it is a very good tool and we don't have too much to do. 

It is UI-based and you can select the load generator and it is auto-scalable. You can select the origin where we want to generate load from it. We can select the bandwidth, for example. 

It supports any number of features and has a lot of tutorials.

The solution is stable.

What needs improvement?

I cannot recall coming across any missing features.

The reporting capabilities could be improved.

It would be ideal if it could incorporate tools such as APM or Dynatrace.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for six years. It's been a while. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have found the solution to be stable. There are no bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. It's reliable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

For the paid version, we have our own technical support for BlazeMeter. They are helpful.

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

The cost is a bit high for the Indian consumer. For a European or American user, the solution may not seem that expensive.

What other advice do I have?

We are just customers and end-users.

I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. We're pretty happy with its capabilities in general.

I'd recommend the solution to other users and organizations.

Good support and documentation

What is our primary use case?

We used BlazeMeter for our performance testing. It allows us to run our tests on the local area network. Its primary use is to make sure that applications can handle a high load before going into the production environment. It will generate a report with the results. The clients come up with some of the test cases and we have to validate them.

How has it helped my organization?

Using this product has improved the way our organization does testing.

What is most valuable?

This is a customizable product. The documentation is good. The sharing works well.

What needs improvement?

Having more options for customization would be helpful.

Has good recording features but it should have the ability to customize reports

Pros and Cons

  • "I really like the recording because when I use the JMeter the scripting a lot of recording it takes me a lot of time to get used to. The BlazeMeter the recording is quick."
  • "In terms of improvement, I would like to have the ability to customize reports."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to create processes for performance. I created a one time function and implemented it for 1,000 users. 

What is most valuable?

I really like the recording because, with JMeter, the recording takes me a lot of time to get used to. With, BlazeMeter the recording is quick.

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, I would like it to have the ability to customize reports. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using BlazeMeter for around two months. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I implemented it for 1,000 users. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. I deployed it myself. Because I'm new to BlazeMeter it took two days to deploy because I needed to study it first also.

I deployed and also maintain it myself. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I also evaluated JMeter and LoadRunner but I prefer BlazeMeter because of the speed and because it's easier to use. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a seven out of ten. I would recommend it. 

I would like for it to be Windo-based. It should have the ability to be implemented into Windows applications.
