I am running a recorded test plan. I have assigned 25 users in the Thread Group, with a Ramp-up Period of 25 and Loop Count of 1.

This is what happens:

  1. Start the test.
  2. While the test is running, in the upper right-hand corner the user number gets incremented to 9/25. At some level, the number remains constant 9/25 and then shows 8/25. After some time, the number automatically gets decremented by 1, 7/25....0/25.
  3. In Database, I see the login entries for only 9 users.

Why does my test plan not run for the 25 users?

How much resources are being utilized on your machine when you run these tests? Are you using any plugins that may be consuming a large amount of memory, or cpu? When you tell it to run 25 threads, it will attempt to do so, but if there are not enough threads available, I'm not sure if it would error out or simply not use all of the threads like you describe. –  Sam Woods Jun 9 '14 at 17:09

The behavior is expected as when the thread has done its work and has nothing else to do it's getting stopped.

You need to provide enough users and loops (don't hesitate to set 100 to ensure that the users will be more or less unique) and use Constant Throughput Timer to orchestrate the load and set it 25 requests per second (or 1500 requests per minute).
