Simple collection of notes begun that will be organized down the road if there's
any need to do so.
In order to execute JMeter, I had to use real Sun Java and not OpenJDK. I modified
the last line of bin/jmeter thus:
/home/russ/dev/jdk1.6.0_38/bin/java $ARGS $JVM_ARGS -jar `dirname $0`/ApacheJMeter.jar "$@"
Limit the number of threads. The harder JMeter is forced to work (i.e.: more
threads), the more inflated timing gets because threads are waiting to gain
access to the CPU. See
The test plan. This consists of:
- list of thread groups
- logic controllers
- sample generating controllers
- configuration elements
See an example of a test plan here.
Output. JMeter reports warnings and error to jmeter.log.
Test files. The JMeter load tests are simply XML files, so you can check
them in to your version-control system.
