We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 reports and analysis tools are very good. They are the solution's most valuable features."
"When there's a high number of TPS I can achieve more transactions per seconds given the hyper-limitations."
"The most valuable features are that it is user-friendly, it's easy to use and easy to teach to others."
"The interface is user-friendly."
"The solution offers excellent integration capabilities."
"It's a very simple solution to use."
"The solution scales well."
"It clearly makes it easy to test APIs based on the SOAP protocol. We are a logistics company, and we have lots of tracking calls coming in. We provide APIs for tracking services, and it makes sense for us to use SoapUI to test them thoroughly."
"The out-of-the-box support for the database is a valuable feature."
"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's not easy to get the data from one place or to do customizations."
"JMeter output reports can be difficult to understand without training."
"We tried automation but it's not easy to integrate with the synching and some of the mission tools that we use for automated testing of APIs."
"The documentation needs to be improved because the interface is not easy for a first-time user."
"Stability has been an issue for us. It needs to be looked at and made a bit better."
"If the load and bare minimum could be defined, I would give this solution a higher rating."
"Occasionally, when you are saving, the solution can hang."
"There are no bugs or glitches, but a few features available only in the Pro version could be made available in the open-source version. Some of the features do not necessarily need to be only available to Pro users. The data generator would be really useful for the open-source version users."
"It is limited to scope and risk services only. It does have some support for JMS, but it is not out-of-the-box; you have to do some tweaks here and there."
"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"
"I haven't looked into it. Most of our projects are nonprofit or grant-based. Everything is public commons, so we don't really have to worry about that so much."
"The cost is not that bad."
"I think the number of users is also limited, considering how much we pay."
"My understanding is that the pricing is okay, however, that's taken care of by our procurement team. It's around $5,000 for three years."
"The Pro version can be expensive for some companies. There are no costs in addition to the licensing fees."
"We have team members who are working in shifts, and it is not possible for us to utilize a single license on a single piece of hardware so that multiple team members can use it. We have to take out multiple licenses for each team member."
Apache JMeter may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources, Web dynamic applications. It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, group of servers, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types.
