With my pro Dojo membership I have been watching the Performance Testing 101 series. I’ve found it quite useful as a getting started with performance testing but also an introduction to JMeter. I’ve yet to start using it on a product but so far it’s making sense.
More and more I’m seeing people ask which tool to use and why. @mwinteringham posted in a slack channel today “I would like to hear arguments for why other opensource tools might be a better option to JMeter”.
I’ve seen people recommend JMeter, Gatling, locust.io and Artillery. I’ve also probably missed some tools there but these are the most common I’m seeing. Do you use any of these tools? Do you have any arguments for or against any of them?
