Tool Information

Introduction

Tool Summary

The Apache JMeter™ desktop application is an open source software, pure Java application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. Apache JMeter may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources (files, Servlets, Perl scripts, Java Objects, Data Bases and Queries, FTP Servers and more). It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types. It can be used to make a graphical analysis of performance or to test the server/script/object behavior under heavy concurrent load.

If you feel that JMeter starting to hang (it usually happens when working with default configuration)
than you need to increase the memory heap, within the jmeter.bat file.

New Release of JMeter brings:
A toolbar with controls, so users no longer have to go into the drop-down menus.
You can set the System to CrossPlatform LAF from the options menu.
The new "Search" feature is quite the coup when compared to JMeter 2.5 which had no such functionality.
In order to add the test-plan from the file system users had to use the drop-down menu "File" and use the option "Open" in it.  Now you can drag the file with the test-plan in the file system and drop it to JMeter.
As expected, this feature supports only *.jmx files.
The "Log viewer" allows users to observe logs at runtime, without opening the *.jtl file from the system and requires a switch in order to activate "Log viewer" check-box from "Options" menu.

At my dev shop everyone is a big fan of JMeter and the online resources make it a better open source choice then Grinder, Gatling and Tsung (for us at least). However, there are limitations with open source. Tech support for particular issues is one of those limitations. The only way to get around that is by having an expert in-house or on speed dial, unfortunately that has it's own issues and expenses. For more serious/busy shops having a commercial tool is a necessity, it simply saves so much time when you don't have to research and dig for the answer...instead you pick up the phone. We've tried a lot of solutions and ended up using Radview Webload http://radview.com I've been very happy with it and it doesn't cost an arm and 2 legs, plus an ear...like some other solutions (LR). However, we haven't stopped using JMeter. Every shop is different so it is important to find the best tools for you. My advice is try them out and see what works for you.
