In this video, Mike Smith demonstrates how the JMeter HTTP managers can handle, and even manipulate, information through the load test.
- [Instructor] Running a load test against a website means…that you sometimes need to manage…and handle different aspects of that website…such as cookies and the cache…that the browser would normally take care of.…As JMeter isn't a web browser,…there can be times when I'll need to give it a helping hand…with things like this.…I can do this with HTTP Managers.…Right-clicking on my Test Plan reveals Config Elements.…Within this,…I can add several helpful website-related managers.…HTTP Cache Manager allows me to manipulate the cache…that can be sent with the requests in the HTTP load test.…
This means that I can preserve or delete a cache…during that test.…HTTP Cookie Manager allows me to manage the cookies used…within the HTTP load test.…If, for example, I'm testing anything with authentication,…and I want to preserve the cookies,…then this allows me to do just that.…HTTP Header Manager does exactly what it says on the tin,…it manages the headers of the HTTP load test.…This means that your load test can carry forward the headers…
- What is load testing and why do we do it?
- Creating and running load tests
- Improving a test by adding timers and assertions
- Running your load test through the CLI
- Saving CLI results to a .jtl file
- Importing a .jtl file to JMeter graphs
- Creating an HTML dashboard at CLI runtime
