The reporting is not very good.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.

More Apache JMeter Cons »

The performance in some cases needs improvement. Sometimes it requires too many resources.Performance and memory management both need to be improved because other solutions use less memory for the same amount of data.If ReadyAPI had more integration with all of the big tools on the market then this would be very useful.I would like to see a better dashboard for monitoring in the next release of this solution.
