JMeter is to first download the latest production release and install it. The release contains all of the files you need to build and run most types of tests, e.g. Web (HTTP/HTTPS), FTP, JDBC, LDAP, Java, and JUnit.

If you want to perform JDBC testing, then you will, of course, need the appropriate JDBC driver from your vendor. JMeter does not come with any JDBC drivers.

3) Paste it in /var/www/html/
4) Unzip “jakarta-jmeter-2.3.4”
5) New folder with name “jakarta-jmeter-2.3.4” will be created
6) Go to command prompt
7) go to “jakarta-jmeter-2.3.4” folder (cd /var/www/html/jakarta-jmeter-2.3.4)
8) go to “bin” folder (cd bin)
9) Now you are in bin folder (i.e /var/www/html/jakarta-jmeter-2.3.4/bin/)
10) type the command “sh jmeter”
11) After a short pause, the JMeter GUI should appear.


After this you can use following commands for load testing.

For non-interactive testing, you may choose to run JMeter without the GUI. To do so, use the following command options

-n This specifies JMeter is to run in non-gui mode

-t [name of JMX file that contains the Test Plan].

-l [name of JTL file to log sample results to].

-r Run the test in the servers specified by the JMeter property “remote_hosts”

-R [list of remote servers] Run the test in the specified remote servers

The script also lets you specify the optional firewall/proxy server information:

-H [proxy server hostname or ip address]
-P [proxy server port]

Example : jmeter -n -t my_test.jmx -l log.jtl -H my.proxy.server -P 8000
