Apache JMeter

Apache JMeter

Apache JMeter is an open source pure Java desktop application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. It was originally designed for testing Web Applications but has since expanded to other test functions. It may be used as a highly portable server benchmark as well as multiclient load generator.

It may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources such as static files, Java Servlets, CGI scripts, Java objects, databases , FTP servers, and more. JMeter 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.

JMeter can also assist regression testing applications by letting you create test scripts with assertions to validate that your application is returning the results you expect. JMeter supports variable parameterization, assertions (response validation), per thread cookies, configuration Variables and a variety of reports.

JMeter architecture is based on plugins.
