Cool open source tool for WebService Performance testing

Score 7 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Interaction with Java and JUnit is the one of best features and strengths of JMeter.
  • Bean shell is another strength where you can write a customized version of your scripts.
  • Webservice Performance is pretty easy compared to other tools.
  • UI Recording gives a easy way of building scripts.
  • JMeter needs to improve the interface and the start and stop process; several times it just hangs when you see an issue and stops testing in between. There is no impact but user has to reopen JMeter as the earlier session still hold resources.
  • More powerful reporting and listeners, compare previous test and current test results. Loadosophia is best example of it, including BlazeMeter which are paid versions.

Pros and Cons

  • Multiple thread group can simulate multiple user system
  • Setup thread, tear down thread, so we can create a scenario first, do the operation and tear down at the end
  • CSV file is very useful
  • I noticed that sometimes after you record staff in JMeter, the order is sometimes wrong.

Pros and Cons

  • Performance testing and aggregating results in one place.
  • From functional testing of API's to regression and peformance tesing, the same tool can be used and tests can be leveraged.
  • Copy & pasting - I noticed bugs when I copy & paste tests under a thread group to others.
  • Some simple way of sharing variables from one thread group to other in same JMX.

Jmeter, what can not you do with it?

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to construct Webservices script - You just need to add a sampler with the endpoint, payload and header information. And boom you can run a load test on the service with varying load and capture the response time and throughput. In a commercial tool like Loadrunner or Silkperformer, this process would take at least couple of hours, while with Jmeter we can do this in 10 minutes or less.
  • Modularizing the scripts - Jmeter has a very good way of organizing the scripts and the reusability of the existing script (transactions) is also as easy as copy pasting the script.
  • Jmeter tests can be run from anywhere, so you can run it from the idle webserver itself if you have some firewall restrictions to test it from your local or other environment.
  • Jmeter distributed tests can be spawn from the AWS and results collated to see the performance from different regions in the world.
  • The most not so good thing about Jmeter comes with the distributed testing. When you setup a distributed testing say with two machines, the load being generated from each machine has to be the same. So we can not separate the test plan and say run these x scripts on machine 1 and y scripts on machine 2. Both machines will run the same load with all the scripts. There is a standard feature available in all the commercial tools to specify which scripts and how many Vusers to be run from which machine in a distributed testing.
  • Reporting and graph visualization aren't that great. The option of adding external plugins for reporting does enhance it to some extent but not anywhere what we can get from Industry standard tools
  • Jmeter for UI based scripting doesn't work easily as the websites offload more work into their Javascript in the UI. Jmeter does not execute the Javascript and we may not be able to measure the real user experience.

Pros and Cons

  • Modular test construction
  • Detailed statistical reporting
