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.

Veracode

Well Suited
  • Well suited for modern programming languages
  • Super good for organisations which do not have a big IT budget to spend on infrastructure
  • Veracode Security consultation is invaluable for teams/Business Units which do not have a dedicated security team
  • These culminate and make it ideal for a startup to quickly benefit from Veracode's setup leanness to get going on Security scanning
Less Appropriate
  • For scanning large legacy applications/software (huge code base, multiple platforms to build, platform specific languages used)

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.

  • The tool seems to have been build for automation.
  • As a security engineer, I prefer the types of findings discovered through DAST or IAST since I can easily verify findings, but the SAST findings may be easier for the developers since it points to the area of code.
  • While it's hard to get developers to take advantage of the consultation calls, I like the fact we can get a highly technical person to walk us through any type of Veracode question.

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.

  • Although an improvement to what was there previously, the Analytics section using Looker, could still use some improvement. It does seem that what Veracode has deployed is a very limited version of Looker. While helpful and useful, there seems to be so much more that Looker does (such as dynamic querying), however, the version that Veracode employs doesn't seem to offer this.
  • More user control of administrative functions such as user adding/deleting. Veracode still uses a 'soft delete'/'hard delete' functionality. This can become cumbersome for self-user-administration when a deleted user has to be re-added. A support call is then necessary to have this done.
  • Their idle timeout process needs work. While using the Looker tool, you must save your work every few minutes, as their 'Shark-attack-like' idle timeout will sneak up on you and redirect you away in an instant causing you to lose any unsaved work.

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.

This used to be terrible. Had a difficult time figuring out where information was. Partly this was due to duplicative features, jargon labels, and user navigation. However, in the seven years I've been using the product, it has gotten better.Some of my issues were associated with trying to get scans to work unassisted. Now that scans, once set up, just run periodically, I don't have to deal with that as much. Part of this might also be that I've learned what I need to know about getting around. And still part of this assessment is in comparison to other tools out there that are even worse. Still, they could benefit from an investment in a full useability redesign from someone with an outside perspective, modernizing the UX but also studying and working through the bigger usability concerns. I would love to see better diagnostic tools around getting scans to work so I wouldn't need their tech support people to get scans to work. However, as long as the scheduler keeps going, my needs on this get ever rarer.

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.

Veracode Support has been great. Any time I have had a question, they have responded in a prompt manner. I'd say nine out of ten times they are able to resolve any issues that have come up with a short email exchange. For issues requiring a bit more investigation, their consultants are tops.

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.

Have also evaluated services by GitHub and Snyk. I will say that we continue to use Veracode because of its brand recognition and vendor status in the financial services industry. However if my current company was not operating in this industry I would be tempted to use the less-expensive security analysis services provided by GitHub and Snyk.

Return on Investment

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.

Veracode

  • As I already stated, the cost per application is very high which makes the use of Veracode too expensive for many of out applications.
  • The analysis report is accepted by our clients as a proper SSAT report.
  • Most of out competition does not perform any type of SSAT on the applications they create. This is something we offer and be the only one out there doing this type of testing.
