Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"JMeter is easy to use for a user who doesn't have too much knowledge of programming or certain languages.""The most valuable feature in JMeter is the Thread Group, which helps us to see whether the performance is good.""The most valuable features are the integration with Jenkins and the reporting.""The reports and analysis tools are very good. They are the solution's most valuable features.""When there's a high number of TPS I can achieve more transactions per seconds given the hyper-limitations.""The recording and playback functionality is helpful.""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 performance of the solution is excellent."

"It's an open-source solution with a very large community and available documentation."

Cons
"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.""Automation is difficult in JMeter.""The interface could be made more user-friendly.""It's not easy to get the data from one place or to do customizations.""JMeter output reports can be difficult to understand without training.""The reporting is not very good.""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.""You really need a technical team in order to really utilize the product."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is an open-source product.""I was using the free version of the software.""In terms of open-source adoption, it is completely free.""We are using the free version, and if required, we can easily switch to the other version.""When comparing the price with Load Runner, and if the cost is an issue then JMeter is a better choice""I haven't looked into it. Most of our projects are nonprofit or grant-based. Everything is public commons, so we don't really have to worry about that so much."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: The biggest thing I liked about it is that there is a huge user base out there, and being shareware and being Apache, if I have any question on how to get something done, I get 18 different answers… more »
Top Answer: It's open-source, so there's no cost. If you need some support from the vendors there will be a charge for that.
Top Answer: I sometimes found the documentation to be not as explanatory as I would've liked it. In the cases that I can think of, I was looking for a rather hand-holding approach with Step A, B, and C, but then… more »

Overview

Apache JMeter may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources, Web dynamic applications. It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, group of servers, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types.

Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms. Native apps are those written using the iOS or Android SDKs. Mobile web apps are web apps accessed using a mobile browser (Appium supports Safari on iOS and Chrome or the built-in 'Browser' app on Android). Hybrid apps have a wrapper around a "webview" -- a native control that enables interaction with web content. Projects like Phonegap, make it easy to build apps using web technologies that are then bundled into a native wrapper, creating a hybrid app. Importantly, Appium is "cross-platform": it allows you to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS and Android testsuites.
