Apache Jmeter

This is one of the best tools according to us, in order to measure performance of your system and make it suitable to the user requirements.

We analyse and measure the performance using this tool. It does not call for state-of-the-art infrastructure and supports numerous load injectors.

It cannot record HTTPs communication or intercept the AJAX traffic, which works against this tool.
