Overall Satisfaction with JMeter

We are doing test cloud-based applications with Apache JMeter. This is used only by my team and not across the organization.
  • Extending functional JMeter scripts for reliability testing.
  • Using the Module Controller to modularize reusable fragments.
  • JMeter's capabilities as a testing tool for RESTful APIs.
  • I think JMeter hangs up on large loads. I have seen JMeter becoming unresponsive in the middle of a test. It is because of garbage collection in JMeter. We use best practices to mute all listeners, use non GUI mode, etc., but even with many best practices JMeter pauses in between load tests.
  • The reporting feature can be improved to provide better test results.
  • We used JMeter for testing cloud-based applications effectively and tremendously improved performance of applications under tests.
It is best open source tool available in the market . Also it is easy to train resources and is also very useful for integration testing.
JMeter has great capabilities as a testing tool for RESTful APIs.
