Overall Satisfaction with JMeter

JMeter is being used by our QA teams mainly for performance testing. We are into banking and finance domain. Hence, the performance of the bank transactions should be very rich. JMeter helps us to find bottlenecks around performance issues within our web apps and web services. JMeter also helps us to simulate different user loads in order to test web application under various load patterns.

  • JMeter provides great documentation.
  • To get a summarized HTML report, the user needs to configure a lot of things. It should be done with a single click like other paid tools in the market.
  • Support to measure desktop based application performance.
  • 100% ROI with more customized JMeter framework.
  • We have fine-tuned a lot of performance issues related to our application using JMeter.
  • The only negative ROI is you need highly skilled people who know coding for creating dynamic JMeter scripts.
The main and best thing is that it's an open source tool with the biggest community worldwide.
It is well suited for the organization who is looking for an open source solution for their performance testing needs. JMeter is the best tool for performance testing, I don't see any limitations here, and hence it's never less appropriate for any organization.
