I just started using JMeter. I recorded a test script successfully. Now that I replay my test scripts it doesn't do the required functionality that it was meant to do. More over the process i recorded took me about 5mins to record but the scripts run successfully in 30seconds.

Can anyone please help me? JMeter doesn't show anything in the errors log. All scripts are marked successful and the errors in the summary report are 0%.

  • What you have set for No. of thread , ramp up period and loop count? Also in which pages you are putting load? please share your test plan. Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 8:29
  • No of thread, ramp up period and loop count is 1. Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 10:22
  • I just recorded a test case using the recording controller and i am replaying it. Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 10:23
  • Why you are recording? any specific requirement? Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 10:31
  • I need to make some orders in my application. I need to put load later on if it can handle 100-200 orders at a time. Ordering process consists of 5 steps. (selecting customizations and all) Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 10:36

  1. Make sure that you have HTTP Cookie Manager enabled
  2. Make sure that you properly handle any dynamic mandatory parameters like "VIEWSTATE", "SESSIONID", etc. Record the same sequence several times and look for any request parameters which are different. If they are, you'll need to correlate them by extracting dynamic bits from previous response via

    and add those as parameters into next request.

See ASP.NET Login Testing with JMeter for reference, it assumes some .NET specific dynamic parameters, however the approach should be the same for any backend technology.


Please follow below steps to achieve your testing goal :

1 - Create thread group with following option :

No. of threads : 100
Ramp up period : 300 Seconds [5 Minutes]
loop count : 0 [ZERO]

2 - Add listeners [To see result of load] , 1 - View result tree , 2 - Summary report.

3 - Record your test using : HTTP(S) Test Script Recorder - Perform all scenario in you site you want.

4 - Stop recording when you complete site surf.

5 - Run this test plan and see result that how your site behave when 100 users come to site and surf till 5 minutes continue.

Let me know if you get any confusion in above.

  • I ran my test plan with these settings you mentioned. It ran for 5mins but didn't show any result in the listerners (View result tree and Summary report). However the log showed that it ran successfully. No orders were made in my application though. Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 11:45
  • For now i just want my recorded test case to replay and make an order like i do manually. Ill put in the load later. Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 11:48
  • It must show result. Do you getting list of urls below thread group which you surfed during recording? Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 11:54
  • Yes i am. About 300-400 URLs. Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 12:09
  • Then result must be there. hope you are running jmeter test after stop recording. Commented Jan 5, 2015 at 12:15
