We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is free. You don't need to worry about licensing costs."
"The solution offers a lot of plug-ins and a huge continuously developing community that is regularly offering new features and plug-ins."
"API testing, Database Testing, and MQ testing can be done with ease."
"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."
"The most valuable feature for us is the available information on the forums and to be able to discuss and get answers from the people that are involved in using this tool."
"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."
"Designs dynamic scripts and scenarios, as per our requirements, which is one the most important feature available in NetStorm. It helps us to do performance testing of our application in a periodic way."
"NetStorm can generate high load with a single machine. Its Runlogic feature is very useful to send load to cover each and every flow of the application. NetStorm gives the feasibility of generating load with multiple load arrival models helping components to be tested based on its usage."
"The user interface is a little bit tricky."
"The solution could use some sort of educational features to offer tips and hints to help users navigate it better. They should improve the manuals and help files."
"The tool should be made a bit more robust, and better support should be made available."
"In future releases, it would be helpful if there was an integration with ALM Octane."
"There is some work to be done with the integration."
"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."
"Need to add or support some more APIs in the Script Manager window."
"The user interface had to be improved for the product. Its user interface should be made simple and easy to customize as per user needs."
"I switched to Apache because it is free. Other tools are much too expensive and can cost up to $50,000 a year if you are looking at commercial options."
"This is an open-source solution, and there are no fees."
"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"
