It also lets you control whether or not JMeter parses HTML files for images and other embedded resources and sends HTTP requests to retrieve them.
The following types of embedded resource are retrieved: for details.
If you are going to send multiple requests to the same web server, consider using an HTTP Request Defaults Configuration Element so you do not have to enter the same information for each HTTP Request.
This can save you time if you have a lot of HTTP requests or requests with many parameters.
There are two different test elements used to define the samplers: If the request requires server or proxy login authorization (i.e.
where a browser would create a pop-up dialog box), you will also have to add an HTTP Authorization Manager Configuration Element. where the user enters login information in a form), you will need to work out what the form submit button does, and create an HTTP request with the appropriate method (usually ) and the appropriate parameters from the form definition.
Several test elements use JMeter properties to control their behaviour.
These properties are normally resolved when the class is loaded.
This generally occurs before the test plan starts, so it's not possible to change the settings by using the Samplers perform the actual work of JMeter.
Each sampler (except Test Action) generates one or more sample results.
The sample results have various attributes (success/fail, elapsed time, data size etc.) and can be viewed in the various listeners.
This controller lets you send an FTP "retrieve file" or "upload file" request to an FTP server.
