'Spread your executions without boundaries'

Used Daily for 1+ year
Reviewed on 2018/09/16
Review Source: Capterra

Easy to work with it and highly recommended for any performance tester.

Pros

User interface is not complex. Easy to understand and work flow is very simple.
Comes with many useful testing features.

Using jmeter we can record and run test scripts with simple steps. And it comes with various listeners types, status report types and assertion types which are very useful when creating test scripts (Jmeter).

I can simply import existing projects (Jmeter project files) into ‘blazemeter’.
Also reporing and graph features are very accurate.
By using cloud services, it gives more weight to my executions. Because of that i can reduce unnecessary cost and time.
Thread counts and user counts are highly customizable.

Cons

No cons to say. Perfect application for my performance testings.

It was very easy for a beginner like me to figure out and get started as its UI is very intuitive

Pros

Its is great cause I create and debug my scripts locally (using jmeter) and then upload and use BlazeMeter when I need serious power (or to look share nice looking graphs with clients). As an added bonus, I can even run tests locally on my own JMeter instance and have BlazeMeter show me the nice graphs! (I'm not sure why more jmeter users aren't taking advantage of this).

Cons

I was originally using JMeter on my local machine which was fine for very small loads, but I once I needed to test a few thousand virtual users I wasn't able to scale.

Good service, tested 4k users, went smoothly

Overall I've been quite satisfied with BlazeMeter. I signed up for the Pro plan earlier this month as I wanted to test with 4k users on our deal of the day site which was crashing at bad times i.e. whenever we would put up a deal :(

I shopped around quite a bit and settled on Blazemeter as it was the only tool that I got to work correctly for my site login process (I'm creating a few hundred random new logins on my dev server per test). I really like that I can develop my scripts locally and then upload them to BlazeMeter when I need to test with 4k users. Blazemeter provided a good visualization of all the data I normally get from JMeter, I also got some graphs which show me exactly where the site's breaking point is - pretty helpful. It was a simple process, and very worth the $500 (I ran over 15 load tests).

Pros

--JMeter is the best, most popular testing tool on the planet. No proprietary BS or hardware.

-- Absurdly attentive customer support when I was having JMeter issues.

-- Fairly priced at $500/month. Other options would have cost 4 times more.

Cons

-- You are billed per test, not per minute, i.e. a 10 minute test costs as much as 1 hour one.

-- Not the best price if you are only going to run one test a year.

Blazemeter Chrome extenstion

Used Weekly for 6-12 months

As a Software Quality Assurance Professional I would like to highly recommend this for recordings during performance testing.

Pros

This tool helped me a lot in performing performance tests during my projects. I was able to do my recordings in a way which is really easy & tidy. Also it is supportable for both YAML & JMX file formats. I was able to use the jmx script easily in JMeter to do the performance testing. We also could edit the script using editor itself which is another advantage

Cons

It still saves all the requests including some unnecessary requests. It 'll be better if we could limit it to certain extent
