Subject [Bug 61814] New: Hanging test due to no timeout set / hanging sampler and Test duration
Date Fri, 24 Nov 2017 20:37:08 GMT

            Bug ID: 61814
           Summary: Hanging test due to no timeout set / hanging sampler
                    and Test duration
           Product: JMeter
           Version: 3.3
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Main
  Target Milestone: ---

Currently when you check Schedule in Thread group and:

- fix a duration for your test
- Don't set any timeout on HTTP requests or use a non interruptible sampler

Your test can hang infinitely as JMeter will not interrupt the Hanging samplers
even after duration of Thread Group has been reached.

This is a frequent problem faced by JMeter users (I remember that I have
answered this SO question at least 10 times). Even non newbie can get trapped.

Shouldn't we introduce this to avoid hanging test that give a feeling of broken
JMeter while the problem is in the hanging targetted server ?:

- Option 1: Add an option in Scheduler part called "Interrupt pending Threads
after duration + security margin (1m) that could be a field or property" on
Thread Group (checked by default)
- Option 2 : Add it at test plan level to avoid repeating the configuration
    On start of Thread Group, an additional TimerTask would be triggered after
duration + security margin and would do the following:
        run equivalent (refactor) of code at:
