Introduction y Definition : y JMeter is an Apache Jakarta project that can be used as a load testing tool for analyzing and measuring the performance of a variety of services. . JMeter can also be configured as a monitor. with a focus on web applications. y Why ? : y JMeter can be used as a unit test tool for JDBC database connection.J MS. LDAP. although this is typically considered an adhoc solution in lieu of advanced monitoring solutions. HTTP and generic TCP connections. FTP. WebServices.

y To be organized. y y Warning y Doesn t record https. .Proxy Server Role Record Http requests run by users. y Record only what is meaningful. y Stick to the exact http request a lambda user .

Organization Thread groups y Determine How many users. y . will concurrently run the tests y How long between 2 launch of the test y How many times the tests will be run y Loop controllers y Determine in a thread group y How long between 2 launch of the same sampler How many times the set of tests will be run.

Organization Thread groups Loop controllers .

y Because the thread group doesn t take in count the server. . can take several seconds before responding.Organization Throughput Controller y Make variable pause during the test run to simulate better a client behavior.

Genericity y Variabilisation : y In order not to modify a test to run it on different machines y Example : user and password changing from a shelf to an other .

Genericity y Http default Request y Allows you to put a default ip port and path for all the Http Request contained in the scope y Gives you an easy way to run your test from a device to an other one just by changing the default adress. .

Genericity y Regular Expression extractor y If the data has to be used several times along the test y Like a sessionId for instance. .

y Size assertion y To know if the size of the response received match with the size expected y To verify if the file received is the good one. . y A research result for instance. y Xpath assertion y Using the DOM of the response to check if an element appear.Assertions y Response assertion y To match a pattern in the response code y The response code for instance.

proxy.Running tests y Non Gui Mode y Why? y The stress due to test and display is too high when running distributed tests.server P 8000 .jtl -H my.jmx -l log. y How ? y By running command line Example : jmeter -n -t my_test.

y How ? y Edit remote_hosts=127.0.properties y Start jmeter_server.Distributed testing y Why ? y To simulate stressed environment with a lot of clients.bat .bat on the host machines y Run jmeter.0.1 in jmeter.

y May also be recorded in a specified file for further treatment .Analyzing Test Aggregated graph y Gives all the statistics Result tree y Gives in a tree form. and the sampler data. the requests. all the concerning the tests y May be recorded in a specified file for further treatment (data mining) samplers results.
