"I like the fact that JMeter integrates well with other tools."
"JMeter is easy to use for a user who doesn't have too much knowledge of programming or certain languages."
"The performance of the solution is excellent."
"It is open source as well as relatively extendable. It allows us to extend and add additional functionality and features. Its deployment is also very easy."
"A lot of things are valuable. It is free. It has a lot of features, such as report generation and integration with CI/CD, which makes it very competitive with the other paid solutions available in the market. It is a good solution."
"The recording and playback functionality is helpful."
"When there's a high number of TPS I can achieve more transactions per seconds given the hyper-limitations."
"User-friendly and open source."
"The solution can handle a huge amount of workloads, it's quite scalable."
"What we like the most is that it integrates with UC."
"The most important feature for us is that it supports a lot of protocols because we support all of them, including HTTP, FTP, mainframe, and others."
"The most useful aspect of the solution is that it provides agents in different geographic locations."
"It has good protocol coverage."
"Paramterization and correlation are important features."
"Considering the kinds of tests we are performing here, where we launch several tests at the same time as a batch request, JMeter is not the best tool for the job. Those kinds of things could be done easily with other tools, like T6."
"Automation is difficult in JMeter."
"The reporting is not very good."
"JMeter output reports can be difficult to understand without training."
"They can improve it a little bit in terms of distribution load testing. We struggled with it during the distribution. In terms of reporting, runtime monitoring is not currently included, and it should be included. They can also improve it on the reporting side in terms of the comparison of the reports. They can also focus more on integration with CI/CD. Currently, people are using their own customized tools. It would be nice if Apache can provide some standard tools and procedures for integration with CI/CD tools like DPR. There are some tools, but it would be nice if official standard tools and procedures are available."
"We're like the solution to be more user-friendly."
"The interface could be made more user-friendly."
"You really need a technical team in order to really utilize the product."
"Licensing costs could be reduced."
"We are going to continue to use the product in the future, I recommend this product. However, those who are looking for only REST-based on the API, I would recommend some other tool because of the cost. There are others available on the market."
"The product is pretty heavy and should be more lightweight."
"The solution is very costly. The cost is very high, especially considering a lot of other resources are available now and they are less expensive. For a small organization, it is very difficult to sustain the costs involved in having the solution or the related fees"
"The product is not stable and reliable in the version we are currently using."
"I would like to see better-licensing costs."
