In this video, Mike Smith explores the GUI of JMeter and walks through the process of creating a load test.
- [Instructor] To create my first load test,…I need to open Jmeter.…To do this, I'm going to navigate to the bin folder…within my Jmeter directory, and from here,…I'm going to double click on the Apache_JMeter.jar file.…Once open, you'll see the Jmeter front end.…This is broken up into three distinct sections.…The toolbar section at the top of the screen…has all of the functionality you'd expect it to have,…including creating a new test, opening an existing one,…and saving the current one.…
It also contains buttons for starting a test,…stopping it, and clearing out any information…from old tests from the current session.…The right hand section is your context panel.…This will show you details on anything…that you've selected on the left hand side.…And speaking of which, the left hand side…is your Test Plan.…This section shows a list of every item…within the test so far.…For this course, I'll be building tests…against a fake brand, landonhotels.com.…
With this in mind, it's time to start building some tests.…
