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

Pros
"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."

"It is a good source for load, stress and performance testing.""It helped in achieving the testing of on-premise applications, as well as cloud-based applications, without much difficulty.""NeoLoad is best tool for testing in production without making many changes to the script or solution.""I like the scripting and parameterization features.""The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good.""The test cases are quite easy to build and to maintain. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us. It's the reason why they changed from JMeter to NeoLoad.""The most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to."

Cons
"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."

"It needs improvement with post-production.""NeoLoad does not support Citrix-based applications.""While importing the scripts from backup it should not create the new variables because it has created some issues for us.""I would like to see support for auto-correlations.""Sometimes it's complicated to maintain the test cases. It's much easier than in JMeter, however. I'm not sure if this depends so much on NeoLoad, or is more based on the environment that we are testing.""Most people focus on HTTPS or TCP, but it would be good to have support for a variety of different protocols."

Pricing and Cost Advice
