Overall Satisfaction with JMeter

It is used for performance testing of mobile or desktop applications to check the scalability, reliability, and responsiveness of the product in the market. It is used by the performance center of excellence department inside the performance engineering team of the company. It addresses response time issues and performance metrics of applications faced by the client product.
  • Open source tool
  • Database load testing
  • Handles the correlation effectively using regular expressions
  • Naming convention of transaction scenarios in the jmeter dashboard could be improved.
  • Think time and pause time could be explained effectively.
  • Increase the RAM usage from tool itself rather than going into the bit files and changing it for accommodating a higher number of users and machines.
  • Limited access to help
  • Improve GUI of tool
  • Open source tool hence very likely to be attracted by client to get this tool
I have evaluated LOADUI (web free version) and it was a very unstable tool and I could not rely on those results completely as I was not sure how the tool was performing. It only generated the top 10 less transaction times and when Jmeter was in use, it was very effective in using plugins to accommodate more outputs.
JMeter is well suited for Java applications where the user can script the scenario once and make changes to accommodate for as many numbers of users for load test execution. The image and selection of any files or exporting files scenario is handled well.

It is less appropriate to test Ajax applications where it is required to script click per use.
