JMeter is an open source load testing and performance measurement tool. It is very useful for quality assurance purposes, and can be used to simulate many simultaneous users accessing a web application for example. The responses of the server being tested can be collected using JMeter, and dynamically analyzed on the fly for correctness. The speed of the responses can also be measured, with built-in reports providing a graphical interpretation of the server's performance.

JMeter is an indispensable tool for doing regression testing. Test scenarios can be automated using a simple scripting language within JMeter (BeanShell), and the scripts can be played back as many times as needed. Within the same scripts, the responses can be examined and analyzed. JMeter was developed by the Apache Foundation, the same organization that developed the world-renowned Apache HTTP server.
