The biggest thing I liked about it is that there is a huge user base out there, and being shareware and being Apache, if I have any question on how to get something done, I get 18 different answers. Out of those, there would be at least a few good approaches for what I was trying to do. So, the support system out there is most valuable.

The scripting ability is most valuable. It is easy to use. There is a UI, and you can go in there and figure those things out. After you've got a good set of tests, you basically have a scripted document that you can grab and execute in a pipeline.

It is pretty quick to set up, and you can scale it and version control it.

I like the fact that JMeter integrates well with other tools.

A lot of things are valuable. It is free. It has a lot of features, such as report generation and integration with CI/CD, which makes it very competitive with the other paid solutions available in the market. It is a good solution.

It is open source as well as relatively extendable. It allows us to extend and add additional functionality and features. Its deployment is also very easy.

The features that I appreciate are quite basic. It is easy to ramp up the threads and start calling the application. A lot of connectors can already be found within Apache JMeter, but we are not using the entire set because the integration between the customers and platform is based on HTTP. We are just going to produce lots of HTTP sequences.

The recording and playback functionality is helpful.

When there's a high number of TPS I can achieve more transactions per seconds given the hyper-limitations.

The most valuable feature in JMeter is the Thread Group, which helps us to see whether the performance is good.

JMeter is easy to use for a user who doesn't have too much knowledge of programming or certain languages.

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.
