"Very powerful performance testing tool for web applications. "

What do you like best?

User interface is not complex. Easy to understand and work flow is very simple.

Comes with many useful testing features.

Using Jmeter we can record and run our script with simple steps. And it comes with various listeners types,

When executing my test script, my workstation works as set of different devices. It's amazing right ?

So i don't need multiple devices to test my application. I can deploy my executions by using a single machine.

status report types and assertion types which are very useful when creating test scripts.

Also reporing and graph features are very accurate in Jmeter.

Thread counts and user counts are highly customizable.

In addition, I can simply import existing projects (Jmeter project files) into blazemeter for further testings.

Conclusion : Jmeter saved our money and valuable time.

What do you dislike?

It's very difficult to find any cons about this powerful tool. Actually it works perfectly for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended and very practical.!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my past two years i have worked as a full time performance tester. Jmeter is my primary and favorite performance testing tool. When i'm a beginner for performance testing, this tool helps me to improve my performance testing skills in very efficient way.

"One of the most powerful Tool for load testing (compared to Commercial or Open-Source solution)"

What do you like best?

One of the most powerful Tool for load testing (compared to Commercial or Open-Source solution)

It is a very flexible tool and allows much higher customization than commercial products.

It has since 3.X a very nice web report that provides very rich reporting.

It integrates very well with the development stack through Maven, Gradle, Jenkins, Bamboo...

It is very easily deployable or available on the clouds (AWS, Google, Azure)

It allows load testing a very large range of protocols with Core or Open Source or commercial plugins.

It has a recording feature that allows a huge gain when building a load test. It also has a lot of Extractors (JSON, HTML, Regex, CSS / JQuery ) that allow building very complex scenario easily and an IDE for building it and debugging it.

Its architecture in plugin allows extension that ranges from simple productivity extensions to complete plugin for new protocols.

What do you dislike?

Nothing blocker.

But maybe the lack of undo/redo in the GUI.

And for beginners, the need to read the documentation and a certain learning curve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read the very complete documentation at https://jmeter.apache.org/

Read up to date blogs

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Load testing Web applications based on J2E, PHP, ASP.NET technologies, Mobile Applications, Micro-Services based applications, Restful Webservices, Soap Webservices, Enterprise ERP, BI applications, Video Streaming servers.

"Must Open Source Software to ease software testing"

What do you like best?

Jmeter can be used for various aspects of software testing, as below:

1) API Testing

2) Junit Testing

3) Database testing

4) web interface testing

5) unit Testing integrating with eclipse

6) Devops integration

7) Performance testing

8) Data driven testing

9) Automation testing

What do you dislike?

Since being an open source, its lags few useful aspects like reporting feature out of the box.

Although those plugins can be added as per need, but for new users it may be challenging to have everything setup and gather the required details to use full potential of Jmeter.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Encourage Open Source.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While coming across Software testing, Jmeter provides below solution for below business problems.

1) Foremost being a open source software it provides a fully capable software out of the box without any cost associated of licensing and so on.

2) Widely tutorials available for anyone to learn and start using the software.

3) Integration with most of Dev tools

"Testing utility for a variety of interface points"

What do you like best?

JMeter is versatile utility for building good range of input data options and a variety of ways to show results.

- easy to use and with allows users to build test cases with minimal learning curve.

- can be used it to functionally test http restful interfaces, web endpoints

- can be customized to test with legacy applications

- ability to easily switch from functional to load test by adding users.

- can be used to run integration test as part of maven build.

What do you dislike?

- Limited documentation. This is one area for improvement. It needs to be more detailed and does not appear to be well organized.

- Limited options to test non-java apps

Recommendations to others considering the product

For applications using Java, Jmeter is an easy choice as it allows you to create custom plugins.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted to build an application that exposes a restful interfaces through HTTP. We wanted something that works for functional tests as well as integration test for builds in maven. Since the application was built on java, Jmeter was an easy choice.

Jmeter made it easier to create large set of data inputs. It helped us when we were going through design changes and required automated regression tests.

"JMeter - complete tool for load&performance"

What do you like best?

- very easy to use

- has a graphical interface, which is a good feature, especially when testers don't have a high level of expertise with load or performance testing

- it helps you clearly define load, performance and stress testing notions

- it is highly configurable, allowing you to create simple or complex test plans

- free of charge

- it can be run in distributed mode, a very useful feature especially when wanting to simulate load tests as closely as possible to real life scenarios

- able to use csv files as inputs

- able to create nice graphical reports

- it can be run from the command line, hence, it has the possibility of being integrated with a CI system

What do you dislike?

- the graphical interface is not very intuitive and you'll have to carefully read through the available documentation in order to figure out how to start and create test plans

- when used for non-Java apps, the app might crash for time to time and it needs a restart

- if using test plan with more than let's say 1000 concurrent virtual users, then you'll need a powerful computer to be able to support this load. The alternative is to run the tests in distributed mode, which is a more elegant and reliable solution, but it implies costs, as new Amazon machines are required (for example).

- not enough control over the test cases; you can modify them via the UI interface and that's about it; you have direct access to the source code, but modifying jmx files can be challenging at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- A complete tool for load and performance testing. If you want quick results, JMeter is the way to go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- I am able to easily create load, performance and stress tests.

- The management is able to clearly see the current state of the system: what's its breaking point, how well does it behave under normal and stressful situations

- being able to integrate JMeter with a CI system, we can easily analyze how the system has been performing throughout a certain period of time

"Jmeter: performance testing tool with high flexibility"

What do you like best?

When using Jmeter,we do not need to programming test scripts.As long as you familiar with the HTTP request, the business process, you can according to the input object in the page to write test cases.What's more,Jmeter's test scripts are easy to maintain, which can be copied, and saved in a certain part.

What do you dislike?

JS program and the page cannot be verified using Jmeter, you need to verify manually by yourself.What's more,even if the JMeter script is executed successfully, it is still unable to determine whether the program is executed correctly, and sometimes it needs to enter the program to view, or view the response data from the Jmeter.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can use Jmeter by reading some tutorials or official documents as if you are a beginner.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used the Jmeter tool to complete the test of the Http interface.A subsystem is proposed to be placed in the same "test plan", and the process test can be distinguished by "thread group", which is also easy to set up different test data. More independent interface, can be unified in a thread group, the order of the completion of the test.

"A tool for automate test and try stress test"

What do you like best?

It offers you many options and tools to make automatic test and stress test. It adapts to many different scenario and it is really complete. Add some plugin cover all your needs.

What do you dislike?

It uses soo many resources. When you make a complex test, I'm not able to simulate more than a couple of threads at the same time. In addition, configuration of single componet should be more simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch out resources used and try to permit more threads simultaniously

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've realized stress tests that help me to find problems in my web services and fix them. I've also realize some test case that simplify deployments automation.

"Quick no-frills performance testing. Spartan user interface, but lots of features"

What do you like best?

JMeter is commonly used for performance testing, with support for benchmarking REST/HTTP APIs (or Web Services/SOAP if you're stuck in the '90s) along with a number of other protocols, including JMX. The user interface is a bit bare (it appears to be an ugly Swing-based UI) but it does the job reasonably well and can output data as CSV for later analysis if needed. There are also several nice plugins that show, e.g. a percentile view, response time over time, grouped by user-defined criteria (e.g. showing parts of a multi-transaction flow), etc.

JMeter also supports controlling multiple "slave" agents from other machines, allowing you to really hammer a target server in throughput tests. I'm not sure if using an asynchronous I/O multiprocessing model might provide increased scalability for these tests, as JMeter uses a classic threading model.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit difficult to set it up as part of an automated test (CI/CD) system, though it is possible to be done. It would be nice if there was better integration with build tools, which is perhaps as much a reflection on both build tools like Gradle/Maven as the design of JMeter.

There are some subtle gotchas with the way you organize nodes in the tree view. It's entirely possible to accidentally add too much delay between steps, so be very careful to validate your results against what you expect the configuration to be doing - is it really pausing for the time you configured, or is it pausing much longer/more frequently? It is easy to make JMeter pause 5 seconds between *each* step, rather than 5 seconds at the *end* of running all of them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are other interesting tools that may be worth assessing, like Gatling, which is written in Scala and may be more programmable. Gatling provides a UI configuration and seems better-integrated with build tools. However, I don't personally have experience with Gatling, so cannot comment there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running performance tests! It's a simple way to run performance tests and share results with others. Saving data as CSV allows the data to be re-imported back into JMeter for later analysis if needed (e.g. to validate previous results or compare with future runs).

"do performance testing for web applications"

What do you like best?

take very less time to begin to do the performance test and stress test; and also can share the test cases to other team members

What do you dislike?

The GUI is not very friendly and it doesn't support the stress test very well. Sometimes it will no response when do the stress test. That would be great to give some suggestions for the test results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

very easily to set up the test for performance test and stress test, and also can share the test case with the team members. And it also support to do lots of different server/protocol types, such as HTTP and REST.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

do performance test and stress test very easily. It includes set up the test environment, prepare the test data, run the test case to get test result. And can make decision to adjust the source code based on the result. By the way, also can share the test data to other team member as it saved as a jmx file.

"Best ever load testing tool for performance projects"

What do you like best?

Already used it for Http, Https, SAP over web, Kerberos, SOAP, SMTP, and other special cases of proprietary protocols, demanding special plug ins.

Always accurate and scalable.

Always open source and completely free.

What do you dislike?

UNDO feature still missing although product is technically mature.

Internal documentation should be revised and updated.

The number of provided examples may be increased.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it!

Employ a consultant if just beginning to test performance.

Jmeter is open source so it's free for all..

It has all the important functionality that you may need to start performance and load testing.

It is extremely scalable and reliable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Performance issues are not easy to solve for various reasons.

However, Jmeter is certainly the best ever load testing tool for performance projects.

"JMeter is a good tool for executing automated tests plans against HTTP services"

What do you like best?

How well it works with concurrent requests. It's flexibility and stability. The different ways to view the results. That the plans created can be ran with testing tools like redline. That it works on so many platforms.

What do you dislike?

It's tricky to configure until you work with it a lot and look at examples and tutorials.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Work through some tutorials and find example plans for help learning the basics.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some load testing just to test basic load functionality of the system. I haven't used it to try to create load tests that to mimic real world load patterns with JMeter. I've used it for a good amount of testing to validate that API call results are consistent over time with very high call counts.

"One of the most popular tools for load and performance testing"

What do you like best?

If you think about performance testing of your web services - first tool yuo should thisnk it is JMeter. What made JMeter the most popular? Integrated proxy - you can record all your interractions with web service(POST, GET, UPDATE and etc requests with params) and after that edit it - and you have good load testing plan. Xpath validation - on every response you can validate that reponse contains required elements.

And at least you can create graph of your load testing where you could see performance.

What do you dislike?

Sophisticated load testing project could be difficult to understand with new joiners, a lot of modules depends on their position in project structure.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We measure system degradation from build to build.

"I have used JMeter as performance testing tool in two of my projects but now I choose locust"

What do you like best?

Easy to add slaves, GUI is easy for some testing engineers that lack of programming experiences.

Can use some other tools to record test scenario and export to script of jmeter.

What do you dislike?

xml is not a good script format, and hard to reuse or structured in a large project.

While in most of time we don't need GUI.

The report is not good to integrate with other tools.

In a Continuous Integration system, it is not always easy to have jmeter than other tools like locust.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Well, if you just want a load testing tool, and you have good experience in programming like python, I think tool like locust may be better for you.

But if the engineer don't like programming, jmeter may be good for you in small projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ERP system related with house funding, and some web projects based on Java.

It can help us to find the bottleneck in user's view or feature's view. And it save us a lot of cost to build the infrastructure of performance and load testing ourselves.

"Powerful but a little overhead in normal cases"

What do you like best?

It is very powerful. I can use many machines to send requests to my server at the same time to do a load test. And it has many options to custom the request. And it has a GUI so you can explore the features easily.

What do you dislike?

There are too many options to do a test. So it is a little confused sometime. And while I load test a HTTP server, some simple features are just enough. For example, I don't need so many concurrent connecting to my server, I just need to test the QPS. So in these cases, Apache Benchmark or wrk are much easier tools to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is better to include a easy-to-use cli tool so that I can use some script to run it. We used it to test XMPP server but then use Tsung instead.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to test my HTTP server with many concurrent connections, to see the QPS and the latency of the server. I also use it to load test an XMPP server.

"Flexible to support any complex requirements"

What do you like best?

1. flexible to support many complex test requirements, such as support most response format, in the worst case you can parse it with regex.

2. easy to use for simple case

What do you dislike?

1. steep learning curve if you want be a master

2. not easy to distribute tests for million requests. You have to write your own script to simulate million requests at the same time. Of course there are some open source scripts you can use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you tests are complex and too many, you should use it. If it's simple, you can try to use other simple tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need test our server to make sure it supports million requests at the same time. Some requests depends on previous requests, such as to call business api you have to login first. JMeter is so flexible that you can config the dependency and user pervious result as next request parameters.

"Best ninja tool for application performance test"

What do you like best?

Apache JMeter is completely Portable and 100% Java based tool. It is actually designed for web application testing but used to test other functions as well. This is a full multitasking framework allows concurrent sampling by many threads and simultaneous sampling of different functions by separate thread groups. A careful GUI design allows faster operation and more precise timings like you never had before. The caching and offline analysis or replaying of test results is the best that you can get from this. It can be used to make a graphical analysis of performance or to test your server/script/object behavior under heavy concurrent load. It can be used to to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types.

What do you dislike?

Nothing as such only setup is bit difficult for first time users. Once your setup is doen you will be on cruise control.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I definately recommend Apache JMeter for using in testing. Its high performance and meet the need for a robust project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used this tool for performance testing of one of my project for both on static and dynamic resources like files, Servlets, Perl scripts, Java Objects, Data Bases and Queries, FTP Servers. I used it for to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types.

I spend some time to configure and understand the basics with the documentation and it was straight forward to complete my job less than a week and to send the measurements to my supervisor about the distributed application that we had to analyze before send to production.

What do you dislike?

I had to do some more research to understand more the functionalities that we need to use, I really don't remember what was but took more efforts to jmeter work. The documentation was okay, but some things that is not usual or necessary on a kind of measurement and the documentation leaks on it.

"Load Test With JMeter"

What do you like best?

Jmeter is open source load testing tool, is straightforward to use and supports several programming languages, including HTTP/HTTPS, SOAP, JDBC, LDAP and JMS. It also provides a variety of graphical analyses of performance reports

What do you dislike?

Getting "correct" response times from JMeter forces you to understand how to make a realistic client/server setup. If you’re not careful you might end up measuring some incidental bottleneck, like your own workstation’s capacity. On the other hand, I guess that you’d have to consider things like this with any tool!

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is best open source tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I I was using Jmeter for load testing and Unit testing for testing business critical process like CRM.
