We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The performance of the solution is excellent."
"JMeter is easy to use for a user who doesn't have too much knowledge of programming or certain languages."
"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."
"We appreciate that the solution is free to use, as an open-source tool."
"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."
"The most valuable features are functional testing and the central repository that contains various scripts."
"I sometimes found the documentation to be not as explanatory as I would've liked it. In the cases that I can think of, I was looking for a rather hand-holding approach with Step A, B, and C, but then I realized that with a product that is open source like this, you can't do handholding. That is because there are so many different uses and different unique environments and setups for it, but I remember thinking a few times that if they only just said this."
"Currently, the integration pipeline is implemented by using Jenkins or a similar tool platform. These are continuous integration tools. As far as I know, integration is done by using custom scripts. It would be good if the integration with a continuous integration pipeline, like Jenkins or Hudson, can be done out of the box without using a script."
"It should start supporting the presentation layer. It currently provides performance testing specifically at the application and API level. It can be extended to the presentation layer, which includes mainly Angular and React frameworks. It should also be easy to use and easy to train people."
"The interface could be made more user-friendly."
"JMeter output reports can be difficult to understand without training."
"It's not easy to get the data from one place or to do customizations."
"The plug-ins make the reports heavy and they have to be run in non-GUI mode."
"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 dashboards need to be simplified and made more user-friendly."
"This is an open-source product."
"In terms of open-source adoption, it is completely free."
"I was using the free version of the software."
"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."
"When comparing the price with Load Runner, and if the cost is an issue then JMeter is a better choice"
"We are using the free version, and if required, we can easily switch to the other version."
"There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
