In this video, Mike Smith expands the functionality of JMeter with plugins specializing in the visualization of the results of a load test.
[Instructor] Once JMeter is downloaded,…it can be expanded with plugins.…The plugins I'll install focus on graphing…and displaying results after running a load test…and this is important because the graphing function…within JMeter doesn't always offer us…the clearest information on our results.…There are a lot of plugins that I can install for JMeter…to expand this functionality and the…Jmeter-plugins website is the place to find them.…I'm focusing on two specific downloads…that contain bundles of plugins.…
I'll head on over to the Jmeter-plugins website…and in the search bar, I'm going to search for graphs…and the first one I'm concerned with is three basic graphs,…pretty self-explanatory, right?.'…So I'm going to click on the download versions link…at the bottom to download that version.…The second one I want to download is…the five additional graphs, again just clicking…on the download version that I want to download.…Now, once downloaded, I can extract these files…to their corresponding ext and lib folders…
