In this video, Mike Smith introduces thread groups to the load test. Thread Groups are akin to users and out the load into the load test.
- [Announcer] If I want to run a low test that…simulates a lot of users performing various actions,…it all starts with the users, right?…I need to build out the test to…help simulate users within my low test.…To do that, I'm going to use something called a thread group.…Think of a thread group as a group of people…waiting to do what is written…in the test plan section of the JMeter GUI.…To add the thread group to the test plan,…I'm going to right click on the test plan…on the left-hand side of the screen,…go to add and find threads.…
There are a few types of thread groups…built into JMeter that I could add,…but I'm just concerned with thread group at this stage.…It's the most basic type and the one I'll be using most.…Left clicking on this, adds that element to the test plan…meaning that we now have a group of users…to perform the actions we set out in the plan.…I can now also see that the context view section…of the screen has changed to show me…the specific details of the thread group.…
Here, I can change elements such…
- 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
