Cons
JMeter output reports can be difficult to understand without training.The interface could be made more user-friendly.It's not easy to get the data from one place or to do customizations.Automation is difficult in JMeter.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.There is some work to be done with the integration.In future releases, it would be helpful if there was an integration with ALM Octane.The tool should be made a bit more robust, and better support should be made available.
