Cons
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.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 user interface is a little bit tricky.
