Overall Satisfaction with JMeter

We use JMeter for load and stress test for most of our client's products. We target for:

  • Page load
  • Duration of test in seconds with number of virtual users that server can support in x number of seconds (users/sec)
  • Determine a system's behavior under both normal and anticipated peak load conditions
  • Min/Max duration for each page to load
  • Reverse stress test and its consequences
  • Duration of test in seconds with number of virtual user that server can support in x number of seconds (users/sec)
  • Determine a system's behavior under both normal and anticipated peak load conditions
  • Min/Max duration for each page to load
  • Better UI
  • Multiple project window
  • Saving and importing script on another machine looses some settings
  • Increased overall efficiency of product
  • Find bottleneck during peak traffic time
  • Consulting for clients
  • LoadStorm
I have used LoadStorm. But, with JMeter we have advantages for it being open source, as lot of our clients don't have the budget to invest in tools. It can be used to write complex scripts, multithreading framework allows concurrent sampling by many threads and simultaneous sampling of different functions by separate thread groups and across multiple test types:
  • Web - HTTP, HTTPS
  • SOAP
  • FTP
  • Database via JDBC
  • LDAP
  • Message-oriented middleware (MOM) via JMS
  • Mail - SMTP(S), POP3(S) and IMAP(S)
  • MongoDB (NoSQL)
  • Native commands or shell scripts
With LoadStorm all you can test is web pages and write simple scripts.
Things to consider:

  • Number of supported users
  • Peak traffic time
  • Page size and total number of pages
  • Images on page and its size
