We build a software application which enters into various testing phases such as unit testing, integration testing, system testing and acceptance testing. Here we are covering most of the aspects of the white box testing and black box testing. What about the software application performance? Can we say that an application which is functionally sound after testing is fit for the business purpose and use? Definitely not. There is another important aspect of testing which is

Best Practices from JMeter – JMeter Tutorials Series Day 11

Procedure to reduce limitations of JMeter in distributed environment, following are the guidelines will assist in creating a real and continuous load:

Decrease resource necessity Find out the Scoping Rules and design consequently Find the JMeter logs Before executing scripts,find out the default browser Connectivity settings Reduce and limit the Number of Threads Don’t use functional mode Only use same sampler in a loop rather than lots of similar samplers, and also use variables (CSV Data Set)

JMeter’s Distributed Testing - JMeter Tutorials Series Day 10

Distributed testing is a testing process, supports multiple systems to implement stress testing. Distributed testing is helpful to test those web sites and web server applications who work with multiple clients simultaneously.

Figure shows the client-server model of Distributes testing,


Master: A JMeter GUI which controls each slave. Slave: A JMeter-server which gets command from the master and sends the request to server under test. Target: The web server gets request from slaves, under test

Copy all JMeter
