Overall Satisfaction with Apache JMeter

Jmeter is used for the load or performance testing of an application. It is used to identify the bottleneck in the performance and improve the user experience. We have used for newly created authenticated API, Identify management system, and database to store PII. It is worth the tool to create your project and scripts to benchmark the performance numbers for future releases and improvements. We have found many bottlenecks in the application which required to re-design the data flow with the help of Jmeter.
  • Performance Testing.
  • Load Testing.
  • Penetration Testing.
  • Scale the test and rerun existing scripts.
  • Project Creation.
  • Variable declaration.
  • Global Design UI.
  • End User scenario to execute like live users performing the action on the application.
  • Creating Scripts.
  • Running Scripts.
  • Generate Report.
  • End User test scenario.
  • Authentication, Http Header, Request and Response.
  • Good ROI on improving the performance of the application.
  • Finding issues in the performance.
  • Benchmark the performance results.
  • CON: Need skillset to create and maintain the scripts in Java.
  • Scripts are reusable and it is executed by any user.
  • Need Client and Server setup to execute the scripts.
It is very costlier than Jmeter to manager for a multi-seat license. All company does not procure the license for costlier tools. Maintaining Load Runner scripts is difficult than JMeter scripts. You need skill resources to create and maintain the loadrunner scripts and tools. PRO for loadrunner: It's Paid tool and you will get the support whereas with Jmeter you have to rely on the community to support if there are any issues.
