Overall Satisfaction with JMeter

JMeter is being used to run load tests against the web applications that we are working on.
  • It allows excluding css and js files from request whenever you want
  • The installation is quite simple
  • No programming knowledge is required
  • I'd like to have the chance to modify the scripts but since they are really big XML file that task is almost impossible
  • A friendly UI would be appreciated
  • It's good to know when an application is working after applying changes
  • The script maintenance task is hard to achieve, often it's better to create a new script from scratch
  • The reports provide a lot of information which sometimes is hard to be interpreted
  • Gatling
The recorder provided by JMeter is ok and if your team has no idea about programming you can use it to test your web apps without writing any code.
It's useful to test web applications and verify that they are working as expected. It's not the best option if you want to work on the scripts to modify them because the scripts are huge.
