I'm a newcomer to Jmeter and want to be able to run some setup requests once only, in which some variables are setup, before I then run a set of further requests for as many users as I set in the Number of Users Thread Group. These users are passed the variables created in the Once Only Controller.
I've inherited a script as follows, using a Once Only Controller:
If I set the Number of Threads as 10 to ramp up to 10 in one second and run for one minute, I expect the number of Samples (requests) made in the Once Only Controller to show as 1. I only want these requests to run once then subsequent requests to use the setup data.
Why then, when I run, do I see the samples as 10 in the requests that are set in the Once Only Controller:
Bear in mind there may be some fundamental misunderstandings given my I'm a newcomer to Jmeter.
