I am creating a jmeter test that does an HTTP request and after a certain amount needs to run a clean up HTTP request. How can I accomplish something like this is jmeter? Currently I have a HTTP request and I would like to implement something where after 10 HTTP requests of the first POST I run this cleanup request to remove a dependency that the first one has.


  1. POST request #1
  2. Follow step 1 - 9 more times
  3. POST request #2

I need to be able to run 100 concurrent users doing this, any help would be appreciated.

  • I don't understand how your cleanup request relates to running multiple concurrent users. Assume you have just two concurrent users and they're named Amy and Bob. Let's say Amy sends 5 requests and then Bob sends 5 requests. After that, do you need to send a cleanup request? Or do you send a cleanup request for Amy after she sends 10 requests, and a cleanup request for Bob after he sends 10 requests?

  • So in your example, Amy need to run 10 POSTS and then Bob will run 1 POST to close out the first set of 10 ran by Amy. So that Amy can run another 10, followed by Bob(so on and so forth).

  • If Amy runs 10 POSTS, it has to be Bob, never Amy, who runs the close out POST?

  • No it could be Amy, I was using the names as a reference to the difference in POST calls

You can use controllers to fulfill your requirements.

  1. Simple Controller (POST request #1)
  2. Loop Controller (Follow up requests) define # of times you want to execute inside loop controller
  3. Simple Controller (Post request #2)

Let me know in case you need help on this.

  • This solution worked for me, my mistake was thinking I had to manage the loops within the thread group.
