BlazeMeter offers a great SaaS solution for running performance tests in the cloud

It is being used by several teams at this time, while the rest of the organization is ramping up to use it.

It is being used to run performance tests with .jmx scripts. We don't have to set up a performance test environment and we use the Blaze Cloud as a SaaS solution.
  • BlazeMeter takes the .jmx script that teams had written for JMeter. The transition from JMeter to BlazeMeter was seamless.
  • BlazeMeter offers its own cloud and hence we did not have to set it up on-premise.
  • BlazeMeter hits our application from various geographic locations that simulates real life users.
  • BlazeMeter should not require the purchase of 2 dedicated IPs for each suite of performance tests.
  • BlazeMeter should make custom packages cheaper than they are today when purchased for an enterprise and should include dedicated IPs in the package.
  • BlazeMerer should have integration with Jenkins Pipeline 2.0.
It is suited for most API scenarios that we have tried. However, it does not fit in well for big data solutions.

BlazeMeter is great if you need results now and have no idea what you are doing

We user Blazemeter to load and stress test several online radio streaming websites managed by my company. As far as I know it was being used by my department only at the time.
  • Blazemeter has very intuitive and uncluttered UI. It is very easy for a beginner to figure out and get started.
  • Blazemeter allows several methods of creating performance tests - using several popular open source applications. Therefore most often there is no need to learn to use a new tool or language.
  • Blazemeter reporting is very basic and shallow. There is no way to drill down or correlate. I can get better reports by using JMeter for free.
  • Blazemeter is very costly. Testing with volumes of more than 1K cu is expensive, and can be done for much cheaper if a company/team is willing to invest a bit of time to figure out how to use cloud instances and JMeter slaves, and to write a basic script to collect resulting xml output.
Performance testing is a complex concept to grasp and Blazemeter is easy to get started with. So if a completely non-technical beginner needed immediate results and cost was not an issue, I would recommend Blazemeter as a temporary, short term solution. However, if the individuals intention is to execute performance testing regularly, I would strongly encourage them to consider other means. For example Redline13 + JMeter.
