I am running a JMeter test in headless mode and here is part of my answer:

enter image description here

As you see, it always Starts by 50 threads, but then only a few portion of threads remain Active and more than half of them are Finished.

I have 2 questions:

  1. I am not sure, but I guess "Finished" is the number of dead threads? Right?

  2. How can I know, why it happens? Normally, I expect that Finished is always %0

This link answered me very well:

Active: shows the number of active users who were performing requests for this period

Started: shows the total number of started threads since the beginning of the tests

Finished: shows the total number of threads that already finished execution since the beginning of tests
