This piece was originally published by our good friends at BlazeMeter – the Load Testing Cloud. Don’t forget to also check out all of the load testing tool options out there — and other testing tools — along with user-submitted reviews at our Tool Reviews section of the site.
If you often run load tests, you probably have a mental checklist of questions that run through your mind, including:
- How many threads per JMeter engine should I use?
- Can my engine handle 10% more threads?
- Should I start with the maximum number of threads, or add as I go?
All of these questions are important and should be carefully considered – but what about the load test itself? Have you considered how the actual procedure will be managed?
