I am a QA lead in a small company. They want to do load testing for devices. I don't have much knowledge of jmeter or any other tool. My team members also don't know java. How do I deal with it ? Do I learn by myself jmeter ?
I'd probably won't go with JMeter unless you have some deployment expertise in house. Learning the tool is only moderately hard, but getting the tool to scale is a very difficult problem. When you have to start needing 10, 20, 50 machines to scale up your load tests to production like capacities. You then have to consider things like how much network bandwidth, what channels are using what, how stable the machines you have in your load test bed, etc... The reason for this is, your staging environment might be in your data center, but most companies will not have a full dedicated testbed in a data center next to their AUT.

My fav so far I think is SOASTA. They have a VM based solution you can run free on a small scale locally, then scales easily on Amazon for large scale tests. But I do think the 2 above are a lot easier to use.
