JMeter

JMeter is well suited for Java applications where the user can script the scenario once and make changes to accommodate for as many numbers of users for load test execution. The image and selection of any files or exporting files scenario is handled well.
It is less appropriate to test Ajax applications where it is required to script click per use.

LoadComplete

If we already use TestComplete for test automation and there is an urgent need to perform load testing, then it is easy to start with LoadComplete but the tool itself has to improve a lot and support customization to suit our needs. I would say if load testing is the main criteria to use this tool, then there are other open-source tools like JMeter that can support better than this. Of course, as it is an enterprise tool it has very good reporting and record and playback options that I see as an advantage for basic users.

Pros

JMeter

  • Easy of use - in generate load like HTTP requests, and processing/analyzing the responses. No coding is necessary at the basic level, just need to understand load testing and the infrastructure being tested.
  • Automatic management of things like cookies to help with session state support - so you don't specifically have to worry about it or handle it
  • Lots of testing/configuration options to suit your needs in making the right load generation (sampling requests), and analyzing the results, including any pre and post processing of the results first. Things like the Beanshell/BSF pre/post processors, response assertion, regular expression extractor, XPath extractor, CSV data set config
  • There is a JMeter cloud service called BlazeMeter that I think would be useful for those that need to scale up high load without provisioning their own systems. I've not personally tried it though, but I recently attended a meetup presentation that highlighted nice useful features that BlazeMeter provides. One should evaluate the service if they are considering JMeter and need to expand beyond existing hardware resources.

LoadComplete

  • Able to generate detailed reports.
  • Displays graphs during load testing to show the user (Performance Engineer) where a bottleneck occurred.
  • Ability to run tests in the cloud.
  • Port test scripts from TestComplete.

Cons

JMeter

  • Jmeter requires many tweaks with respect to its configuration file and thread properties. users need to edit theses files themselves. There could be some interface where we can edit this fields.
  • Jmeter cannot handle more threads and hangs up when we increase the number of threads. This causes lot of inconvenience. In these situations, user can be notified that such change would be lead to slow performance so that user can do as required. The same appears when we try to view huge files on graph listener.
  • Jmeter should optimize the read and write access to output csv since it acts as overhead to the I/O performance. This affects our test results for the application which we are testing.

LoadComplete

  • Rather slow work with logging, especially on long tests. Test logs can occupy a big memory space.
  • Coding is not presented in LoadComplete, we can use only predefined features, so we have some limitations in test development.

Price, Wiki and user sharing. Having access to the information provided by the developers and other open source providers is key for me. The ability to share information and get answers directly is very important to success in software testing. And the price of this product currently is amazing. Too many companies charge way too much money for products that are far behind in their value and pertinence

I can jump right into a new test plan and start building from scratch. The natural progression from test plan to thread group and then designing the basic format of the process is very streamlined and smooth. With only slight modifications I can build out a very complex model from a very basic beginning.

I have been using JMeter for the last year. By using this tool, you can make sure the system will work under varied loads. It helps us to simulate real time scenarios by creating required virtual users and make sure the application will work under load. Perform load, stress, and stability testing using JMeter.

Customer support is good. If any concerns are raised, they are usually resolved soon, but when questioned about a feature LoadComplete does not support, it usually takes more time to resolve.

Alternatives Considered

JMeter

I have used LoadRunner and Silkperformer, and so far Jmeter turns out be the easiest to use of all these. While each of them have their own ROI, Jmeter can be picked by anyone in hours and start testing within a day. While with other tools, we need to get license, install them (takes a while) and setup tests and firewalls, etc.

LoadComplete

We chose loadcomplete because we already use SmartBear software for other automation solutions. Porting over test cases is easy and a user can have a test up and running within minutes. I do wish SmartBear would have better support and I haven't used any other testing tool in a while to make a comparison.

JMeter

  • Gives liberty to developers and testers to perform testing. Easy to set up and run load tests, stress tests has improved testing.
  • Enhances the performance testing which ensures the delivery of well-suited applications.
  • The Enterprise messaging system, it's a great tool which helps in testing JMS based messages.

LoadComplete

  • Many built-in features (like auto data correlation, load distributing etc) will save time for development.
