Quotes From Members

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

"The recording and playback functionality is helpful.""The performance of the solution is excellent.""The most valuable features are the integration with Jenkins and the reporting.""The scripting ability is most valuable. It is easy to use. There is a UI, and you can go in there and figure those things out. After you've got a good set of tests, you basically have a scripted document that you can grab and execute in a pipeline. It is pretty quick to set up, and you can scale it and version control it.""It is open source as well as relatively extendable. It allows us to extend and add additional functionality and features. Its deployment is also very easy.""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.""User-friendly and open source."

The BlazeMeter the recording is quick."

"It's not easy to get the data from one place or to do customizations.""You really need a technical team in order to really utilize the product.""We're like the solution to be more user-friendly.""They can improve it a little bit in terms of distribution load testing. We struggled with it during the distribution. In terms of reporting, runtime monitoring is not currently included, and it should be included. They can also improve it on the reporting side in terms of the comparison of the reports. They can also focus more on integration with CI/CD. Currently, people are using their own customized tools. It would be nice if Apache can provide some standard tools and procedures for integration with CI/CD tools like DPR. There are some tools, but it would be nice if official standard tools and procedures are available.""Automation is difficult in JMeter.""The reporting is not very good.""It should start supporting the presentation layer. It currently provides performance testing specifically at the application and API level. It can be extended to the presentation layer, which includes mainly Angular and React frameworks. It should also be easy to use and easy to train people.""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."

More Apache JMeter Cons »

"Having more options for customization would be helpful.""The reporting capabilities could be improved.""The should be some visibility into load testing. I'd like to capture items via snapshots.""Lacks an option to include additional users during a test run.""In terms of improvement, I would like to have the ability to customize reports."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is an open-source product.""We are using the free version, and if required, we can easily switch to the other version.""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.""I was using the free version of the software.""When comparing the price with Load Runner, and if the cost is an issue then JMeter is a better choice""In terms of open-source adoption, it is completely free."
