Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The reports and analysis tools are very good. They are the solution's most valuable features.""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.""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 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.""Scripting with the solution is good.""The recording and playback functionality is helpful.""User-friendly and open source."

Cons
"The interface could be made more user-friendly.""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.""JMeter output reports can be difficult to understand without training.""The plug-ins make the reports heavy and they have to be run in non-GUI mode.""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.""You really need a technical team in order to really utilize the product.""We're like the solution to be more user-friendly.""It's not easy to get the data from one place or to do customizations."

"The reporting side of things is really complicated. It's difficult to get out exactly what you're looking for, there are almost too many options.""Technical support is slow and wastes a lot of time, so it needs to be improved."
