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.

Tricentis Tosca

A lot of good features Tosca has and has helped our department in multiple ways. When it comes to end-to-end, that doesn't mean in one particular business but across multiple technologies too. It's very easy as it's scriptless and anyone can easily learn. We have automated more than 2000 scenarios so far and I can say once all the test cases were built it's easy to just execute them now. If any modifications are required we do those and then executive. Reusability has made it more easier.

Also with the integration with other test management and defect tracking tools it gives us more scalability.

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.

Tricentis Tosca

  • It's one stop shop for all your test automation needs like - api layer, ui layer, load testing, mobile automation.
  • It has excellent support for CI/CD and Devops environment which makes it very modern but much needed solution
  • It can run in cross browser and cross devices with same test script and again saves a lot of time.
  • Excellent results and dashboards gives nice view into results.

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.

Tricentis Tosca

  • It does have a steep learning curve, A tool is often perceived capable of doing only what its user is able to achieve in accomplishing while using it. For this reason, its very necessary if for the team at Tricentis to continue doing the great work they are doing to train early adopters of this fantastic tool.

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.

Once you get used to the tool it's very easy to automate and also maintain the test cases. Only one recommendation or a drawback that I see here with Tosca is their Test case design (red section) approach. It's complicated.

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.

The vendor support that is provided in terms of Mail, chat, forums, online support is so easy and I haven't seen this with any other tool vendor so far.

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.

Before going in for TOSCA we tried to use Selenium / UFT. But TOSCA stacked much ahead than other tools.

Tricentis Tosca

  • It really had a very good impact on our ROI. We were able to automate most of the apps and layers with in it and get a very short execution time which led to increased releases with in short span of time.
  • Time to market really improved and efficiency of developing scripts was not too bad.
  • With built in test dashboards, it was easy to pull metrics and share the insights with management.
