Quotes From Members

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."

"The most valuable feature is that you can create an infrastructure on-demand and do performance testing with it.""The usability and ability to integrate with other solutions is quite good. When I use it in on Azure, then Red Hat is the most likely solution I use. When I use AWS, then I tend to use Lambda functions. In either case, it works well and you can use it either way.""The most valuable feature is that we do not have to accommodate the load-testing infrastructure in our own data center.""The record and playback feature is the most valuable feature. It's all driven by the script, so it's a script-based tool where the background tracing starts. Java's background process does a lot of tracing. The process starts in the background. It sees what peaks of volumes that the process can handle. It's easy to use because it's script based, record, and playback. I"

"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."

More Apache JMeter Cons »

"Improvements to the reporting would be good.""I don't know of any features that should be added. The solution isn't lacking anything at this point.""There are three modules in the system that are different products packaged into one, and they can sometimes be difficult to figure out, so they should be better integrated with each other.""I would like for there to be better integration with other tools so that when you do load testing you can also do a security check."
