Powerful performance testing tool

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Likelihood to Recommend

Apache Jmeter is very useful for parameterizing tests and loading info, which means it has a great performance testing. JMeter will allow you to evaluate if you need to extend outside the existing hardware infrastructure. It can maximize the access to the CSV data by reading it correctly, as the I/O efficiency is overhead. It also offers a very simple user experience, many plug-in modules and a range of graphical maps and descriptive notes to the audience. You could even use the chrome BlazeMeter add-on to capture, retrieve, and create JMSX files in HTML Cookie Manager for an app-based check.

JMeter - Best open source performance test tool

Likelihood to Recommend

JMeter is the best open source performance test tool that is used across our organization. Nowadays, clients are very serious about their application's performance as functionality. To make sure of the application's performance, stability and reliability, different types of performance testing are required. With JMeter, it is very easy to record and enhance the scripts with minimum programming knowledge.

It is well suited for the organization who is looking for an open source solution for their performance testing needs. JMeter is the best tool for performance testing, I don't see any limitations here, and hence it's never less appropriate for any organization.

Great tool for Performance Testing

Likelihood to Recommend

It is a very great tool for running load tests to check the performance and scalability of REST APIs. Its free for commercial use and well supported by the community. It needs to have a very good system that supports a high heap size. It has a lot of plugins and extensions which can improve performance testing.

JMeter, a tool to test web apps

Likelihood to Recommend

It's useful to test web applications and verify that they are working as expected. It's not the best option if you want to work on the scripts to modify them because the scripts are huge.

JMeter, well done taking on the competition

Vetted Review

It is free and easy to use. It is very well suited for both functional and performance testing of web services. Very powerful test suites can be generated in little time and executions are easy to set up. Direct integration with Blazemeter is very helpful when you are ready to scale testing. Execution reports are also very informative and easy to process. JMeter is not the a good tool for testing that involves UI interactions.

JMeter is a great all around load test tool with some caveats.

The key questions I would pose are: how high of a concurrent load do you need to generate against the system? How technically skilled are your personnel that will perform the load testing? How much programmable/scripting/code based control do you desire from the tool? Do you prefer more of a GUI based tool or a programmatic code/scripting based tool? JMeter will be for those that want a GUI, moderate to low scripting/code based control/programmability, moderate to low load generation, and for users experienced in the novice to expert range.

Jmeter- Performance testing tool

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

It is well suited for beginners. Users need to do the parametrization and correlation all by themselves to prepare scripts. So they can understand how do performance testing tools work. It works well for testing web applications or to identify any bottleneck or root cause of a failure. For example I faced a concurrency issue where when two reports were generated at the same time. It would generate two 0kb pdf files with no content. Jmeter helped me in resolving this issue. It is not well suited for functional testing since other tools like selenium or imacro would be better since they require less of parameterization and correlation.

Performance Testing Using JMeter

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

If you are looking for Open source or even starting off with performance testing, JMeter is the tool for you. The more you use JMeter the more you will learn it's powerful capabilities. It's best suited for testing the API layer/protocol layer. You can also achieve UI layer performance testing with selenium samplers.It has powerful assertions and so you can use JMeter as functional test tool too at the service layer. Parameterization is very easy. Html cookie manager will help you immensely for a browser-based test. You can use a BlazeMeter plugin on chrome for record.playback and JMX file creation.Jmeter is not recommended when you want to test the performance of the application with complex scenarios in UI layer.

What Can JMeter Do For You?!

I would like to know what are the overall goals of the projects under review and the opportunity to emulate various user types and scenarios. A simple load test is extremely easy to build with this product and then can be adapted to any test case options needed as the project moves forward in the software development lifecycle.

A situation where this would be well suited would be to view a large dataset and then slicing and dicing to see graphical representation of the data. It allows the user to process a lot of data and work through it without having an end goal in mind. It's a good way of on the fly info.

Jmeter as performance testing tool for web applications/products

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Likelihood to Recommend

Jmeter is free tool, so it's preferable in case if there is no budget for performance testing. Jmeter is most suitable to build simple load profile and quickly analyze web app or DB performance. It's cross-platform and can be configured to have cluster and create required load. Jmeter is less appropriate if you need to perform custom actions that are not listed among Jmeter handlers (it's required to write Java code and requires development skills). It would be great if Jmeter can support multiple scripting languages like TestComplete (automation tool)

Jmeter is a great automated tool that can be used for both functional and load/performance testing.

It is very well-suited when looking for a free, open-source tool. No setup is really required here either, so you can hit the ground running. The community support is okay, but since the tool is not that popular you will not find much information on it online (however, the official documentation is written pretty well). If you are looking to test XML/JSON-type web-services in both functional and performance ways it is a good tool.

why Jmeter to use for functional and automation and performance testing

Jmeter is open source tool. It helps in a lot of automating manual test cases. We are using it for functional, automation and load testing of our websites. It supports all protocols like REST, FTP, SOAP, web services, Java, BeanShell and others. it is very user-friendly. Any one can understand it easily, and it has a good UI so any manual tester can use it.

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.

JMeter requires knowledge of web pages, urls, scripting, and medium level to experienced QA people. It works great for read only websites, that is, websites that don't require forms be be filled in or secure logins. Working with forms and security can be done, but it's not that straight forward. I wouldn't recommend this tool for junior or unexperienced people, or for someone that will need a step by step guide or wizard.

It is perfect for simple cases (as I'm not an expert I haven't used it so deep). The best part that I love about JMeter is that you can add your defined variables, and then call them in all your requests. It really helps. The other part that I don't like so much is that after deleting something, you can't revert it. Sorry if I understand the question wrong.
