Load Testing with Apache JMeter

Load testing your web application servers can be an important step in preparing your environment for production. Apache JMeter can be used to simulate the load of many users connecting to your servers, which can be useful in identifying your capacity limits and potential bottlenecks in your setup. This series will show you how to use JMeter to record test scenarios, and to perform load testing on your web servers.
  • In this tutorial, we will go over how to use Apache JMeter to perform basic load and stress testing on your web application environment. We will show you how to use the graphical user interface to build a test plan and run tests against a web server. JMeter is an open source desktop Java application that is designed to load test and measure performance.
  • In this tutorial, we will teach you how to set up and use the Apache JMeter HTTP(S) Test Script Recorder to record HTTP requests. Recording HTTP requests is a great way to building test plans, and can be useful in creating tests that closely mimic a normal user's behavior. This tutorial assumes that you have a basic knowledge of Apache JMeter.
