"The recording and playback functionality is helpful."
"I like the fact that JMeter integrates well with other tools."
"JMeter is easy to use for a user who doesn't have too much knowledge of programming or certain languages."
"Scripting with the solution is good."
"Very user-friendly and easy to use."
"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."
"User-friendly and open source."
"The performance of the solution is excellent."
"We are happy with the technical support."
"The reporting is not very good."
"You really need a technical team in order to really utilize the product."
"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's not easy to get the data from one place or to do customizations."
"The interface could be made more user-friendly."
"Because so much is being done these days with authentication processes, a better system for either getting bearer tokens or some kind of token-based authentication prior to executing APIs would benefit the product. It is there, and you can do things. It is just not real clean at this point. There should be a better authentication process for JMeter or some automation or better guidelines for gaining and utilizing tokens on the fly."
"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."
"On a smaller scale, there will be no budget issues, but as we expand to a larger user base, I believe we will face some pricing challenges."
