JMeter for Performance Testing
Although the Apache JMeter solution is a low-cost option for performance testing, JMeter is NOT an easy tool to use. Also, JMeter has no formal support (since it is an open source tool).
Curious about JMeter yourself? Installing is easy, just follow the steps below.
How to install JMeter:
- Install latest Chrome Browser
- Create a free BlazeMeter account
- Install latest Java JDK
- Install latest version of JMeter
- Install BlazeMeter Chrome Plugin
As an Olenick Consultant, I have had the pleasure of working with various tool partners. With JMeter, I have been able to see the value that Olenick & Associates provides through the evaluation of support of your application, using JMeter, as well as several other commercial performance testing tools. Once the tool that supports your application is determined, full-service solutions from scripting, to execution, to analysis are available when you partner with Olenick.
JMeter desktop application is an open source software, a 100% pure Java application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance.
