Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable features are the integration with Jenkins and the reporting.""Scripting with the solution is good.""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.""Very user-friendly and easy to use.""User-friendly and open source.""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 most valuable feature in JMeter is the Thread Group, which helps us to see whether the performance is good.""When there's a high number of TPS I can achieve more transactions per seconds given the hyper-limitations."

More Apache JMeter Pros »

"It stores good reports, as in, improved reports if compared with the SoapUI. It also has in-built security. You just need to switch and check the security testing. My team has never used it, but I know ReadyAPI provides those facilities as well."

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.""We're like the solution to be more user-friendly.""Automation is difficult in JMeter.""It has some proxy-based dependencies which require specific proxies to be set up or disabled, which causes problems.""It's not easy to get the data from one place or to do customizations.""They can improve it a little bit in terms of distribution load testing. We struggled with it during the distribution. In terms of reporting, runtime monitoring is not currently included, and it should be included. They can also improve it on the reporting side in terms of the comparison of the reports. They can also focus more on integration with CI/CD. Currently, people are using their own customized tools. It would be nice if Apache can provide some standard tools and procedures for integration with CI/CD tools like DPR. There are some tools, but it would be nice if official standard tools and procedures are available.""The reporting is not very good.""The interface could be made more user-friendly."

"This is an area for improvement with the tool. We unnecessarily use JMeter for some website testing, which we would like to avoid by introducing this tool for API and load testing because it provides load testing features."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"When comparing the price with Load Runner, and if the cost is an issue then JMeter is a better choice""In terms of open-source adoption, it is completely free.""This is an open-source product.""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.""I was using the free version of the software.""We are using the free version, and if required, we can easily switch to the other version."

Overview

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.

Speed is just as important as accuracy when it comes to APIs. A slow API can grind the user experience to a halt, but you don't have to wait for things to go live before understanding how they will behave under heavy load.

With LoadUI Pro, you can reuse your functional API tests built on the industry's #1 open-source based API testing tool, SoapUI Pro to speed testing and reduce the time it takes you to deploy high performance REST and SOAP web services.
