Loadium 100% compatible with JMeter for load testing is a crucial tool that determines whether the web application under test can satisfy high load requirements or not. It also helps to analyze the overall server under heavy load.
This allows you to scale your JMeter tests to any size. Besides JMeter, Loadium works with other open-source platforms and plugins. And you can easily make testing part of your CI/CD environment with Jenkins and other platforms.
Avoiding to load test your web application can be risky. If the product is exposed to an excessive load, the entire system can fall on its knees, offering nothing but a waste of time and resources and potentially unhappy users.
That’s why load testing is one of the crucial parts of performance testing.
What is JMeter
Apache JMeter is one of the most used performance testing tools for developers. JMeter is a test tool that is used to analyze and measure the performance of applications, different software services and products. What makes JMeter unique is that it’s highly versatile despite being open-source.
JMeter is written in Java, used to test web and FTP applications as long as the system supports a Java Virtual Machine (JVM).
Moreover, Loadium with JMeter offers software testers the opportunity to test their applications for both dynamic and static resources, such as queries, servers, logs, scripts, and files.
Apache JMeter can also simulate a heavy load on a server by creating multiple simultaneous virtual users on a web server.
Is Loadium The Best Alternative to Other Load Testing Tools ? Absolutely Yes!
