How to Execute Performance Testing with JMeter?

Conducting performance testing, the specialists define the critical for application or system load. The testers also analyze the system behavior under the high load.

Using the JMeter tool during performance checking, software testing company may deeply feel all advantages of work with this tool.

What Are the Pluses of Performance Checking with JMeter?

  • JMeter allows to fulfil performance testing of the static resources (HTML and JavaScript), as well as the dynamic ones (AJAX, Servlets, JSP).
  • With the help of the JMeter tool, one may determine the maximum number of the simultaneous users which may be supported by the website.
  • JMeter presents a wide range of the graphical analysis samples of the performance reports.


Performance testing itself includes several other checking subtypes. For testing with JMeter, it is:

  • load testing (it is checking through the simulation of the boundary number of the simultaneous users under which the system will properly operate);
  • stress testing (each web server can withstand a certain load level, and this checking type exactly defines the maximum load which the server may process).

JMeter simulates a high load on the system. With the help of JMeter, the user request examples are created and copied, and then they are launched on certain streams. The requests are sent on the application, the HTTP responses are received. It may be just a vast number of such users.

This is the way of checking the maximum load level which may be withstood by the application. Web application testing should obligatory involve performance and load checking, otherwise, the server may just go down because of the unavailability to a large number of users.
