ensure high performance testing
Apache JMeter can be utilized as a load testing tool that analyzes and quantifies performance across various services, focusing primarily on web applications. This Apache project can also function as a unit-test tool for JDBC database connections, Webservices, FTP, LDAP, JMS, HTTP, OS native processes, and generic TCP connections. JMeter can be configured as a monitor as well, although this would usually be considered to be ad hoc monitoring rather than advanced. On top of this, JMeter can handle some functional testing too.
