Welcome to Apache Jmeter Tutorial 2021 edition. Apache Jmeter has been around for more than 20 years to the fact that load testing is synonymous with JMeter. It is java based load testing tool managed by Apache Software Foundation. When we talk about load testing, one needs to be sure of how much traffic the site would be able to take in. Millions of companies are functioning because of their applications such as websites, mobile apps, etc. And losing visitors can finish the entire company. Just for few hours google was down and the world felt like a standstill. The same was when Instagram and Facebook were down. Hence, load testing is a crucial part of the Software Development Life Cycle itself. 

This tutorial has been designed specifically for beginners where we will look at the apache JMeter from scratch. What is it, advantages of it, features, installation and everything along with it. The components of it and all with live examples. This tutorial has 10 blogs on it with working examples to take you from absolute zero. And this tutorial should be enough for you to add knowledge of Apache Jmeter to your resume and crack any interview.

What is Apache Jmeter

Apache Jmeter is a Java-based desktop testing application to test the load capacity of the server as in the breakpoint, issues in heavy traffic, how long does it take to get a response from the server, are there any delays in the whole process, and focusses on both load testing and stress testing seamlessly. It has its entire ecosystems and terminologies of thread groups that send requests via samplers and hence get responses through listeners. Writing test plans and executing requests of multiple types like an HTTP request, JDBC request, etc. This tutorial thence would expand on the features of this tool, use of proxy servers, remote testing, and loops.


Performance testing becomes an integral part of enhancing any product. As a product grows so does the company, then focus on narrowing down response in milliseconds becomes crucial. There have been so many cases that products that were a failure, became a success story after the response time lessened up which further increased users and hence revenue of the product. This has been witnessed by all Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube. Now there are cloud-based load balancers provided by AWS too, but apache JMeter still stays strong in the market because of the fact it is an open-source product and extremely easy to use as you would not require knowledge of coding that much as well. It can even get easily integrated with Jenkins.  So, let us get started with the tutorial with the introduction, installation, exploring the elements, assertion, controllers, interview questions, and more. Happy learning engineers:)
