Overall Satisfaction with Apache JMeter

We used JMeter for performance and load testing of our cloud service to verify that it worked well with many users before launch and also to be able to calculate costs when scaling up the service for more users.
  • Easy load testing to verify system with load from many users
  • Very customizable through your own Java code
  • Possible to run from a console without any user interface
  • Make it easier to record traffic and use that as input during testing
  • Ability to simulate many users
  • Ability to simulate many parallel threads
  • It gave us confidence that the costs would be manageable with many end users
  • It gave us confidence that the cloud platform we used would be sufficient
SoapUI is a bit easier to get rolling for people without development skills but if you have people with development skills JMeter shines. JMeter also uses significantly fewer resources on the client so you can be sure your testing isn’t restricted by the client machine.

Do you think Apache JMeter delivers good value for the price?

Did Apache JMeter live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Apache JMeter go as expected?


Would you buy Apache JMeter again?


It’s great for load testing when you want to apply a load but wants to be sure it’s not restricted by the client machine you run JMeter on. It can be a bit hard to use for people without Java skills.
