Enables us to monitor our application instances as well as our database to see where the bottlenecks are

What is our primary use case?

We use BlazeMeter to run simple POST requests against our application to simulate heavy load. We can then monitor our application instances as well as our database to see where the bottlenecks are.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has helped us simulate heavy load situations so we can fix performance issues ahead of time."
  • "My only complaint is about the technical support, where sometimes I found that they would not read into and understand the details of my question before answering it."

Enabled us to identify bottlenecks in our infrastructure and better prepares us for large amounts of traffic

What is our primary use case?

We have an AWS elastic beanstalk Node.js express backend with Mongodb that we expect to experience a significant amount of load in the coming weeks.

What other advice do I have?

Excellent product!

Can quickly scale out a load test across the world, to simulate realistic world traffic conditions.

What other advice do I have?

Definitely ask your engineering staff if they're familiar with JMeter. If they're not, it would be good to get a quick two-hour tutorial on it and then BlazeMeter will make a lot more sense.

For heavy load testing on a specific application, we did not encounter any stability or scalability issues.

What other advice do I have?

I would say use it, but people also have to know that they have to do their own due diligence and they have to make sure that their servers are okay. My advice would be to gather statistics on the servers as the tests are running, so that if the test indicates that there's something wrong, you can quickly look to the CPU, to the memory, to get an idea if it looks like it's an internal issue, or if it looks like it's an external issue.

It can push large numbers of simulated users at our applications and provides access to detailed reports.

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking to improve your website performance and ensure maximum uptime by load testing your system from end to end, then there is no better solution that I have found. It is extremely simple to setup.

We are able to see the errors compiled, along with their responses.

What other advice do I have?

Having a simple setup and being able to get the tests up and running right away, is the key for this solution.

The URL testing is valuable. It is not a complete load-testing solution.

What other advice do I have?

Look for your needs. This product is not a complete load-testing solution. It does offer certain types of load testing like URL testing but, other than that, we did not find them useful.

Vendor
I like the ability to spin up as many load generators as I need, and get statistics on response times and the load generators themselves.

What other advice do I have?

BlazeMeter is an easy way to get really accurate results from JMeters that you already have without having to build a set of networked JMeters (e.g., one with the UI running a bunch GUI-less slave machines).

It can generate a heavy load and provide a report that shows how the system behaved under the load.

What other advice do I have?

It is an excellent and reliable tool. I liked it very much.

It helps us procure the required load generation infrastructure.

Consultant
A cost effective way to scale our existing JMeter load tests.

What other advice do I have?

When selecting a vendor, I look at ease of use, support, product maturity, and their partner model. BlazeMeter is a great solution to run your existing tests. You will need detailed knowledge of JMeter to get the most out of your testing and BlazeMeter offer comprehensive training if you are new to this.

We like the ability to run a test repeatedly and that it is easy to make small changes to the test.

What other advice do I have?

It's free and easy to sign up and try, so give it a whirl and see if it meets your requirements. We found it met ours and more, helping us gain confidence from our customers and solve a nagging problem in the performance of a third-party application.
