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.

Cons

  • 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.

It is good to use. I still use it in my current job location to do performance testing of web applications

Usability

Based on 1 answer
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.

Alternatives Considered

JMeter gives us a much more versatile option for driving our performance testing options. Having so many data configurations, timers and listeners to choose from is very important to our QA teams. We also save so much time in using this product because of the speed at which we can build solid test cases and scenarios. JMeter gives such great flexibility in the test plan build. The ability to mix and match test types and functions is crucial to our success.

Return on Investment

  • JMeter has brought a very positive influence in the way that we test web services. This allows us to find more issues sooner and identify server, network and database shortcomings during unit and performance testing.
