Subject RE: Hanging threads in non-GUI mode

BTW, the reason I suggested removing the listeners was purely to see if this
had any effect on the memory usage - obviously the test is then not very
useful. If this shows a major improvement, we know where to start looking
... e.g. does the number of listeners have an effect, etc.

these numbers seem fine. does your webserver logs confirm the expected

6 aggregate listeners shouldn't cause a performance impact, since it
isn't graphical. in non-gui mode, do you get any errors in jmeter's

build I'm using, the Sampler gives "HTTP Request" and "HTTPRequest HTTP
Client(ALPHA)" . I am using the default http sampler because that is what
the Proxy recorder uses.  I have been using this since version 1.9.

have uniform random timer between 5 to 15 seconds.  Then I have some "user"
think time between opening menus that are uniform random between 1.5 to 5
seconds.  And some uniform random timers between 1 to 4 seconds for
"waiting" to click on a link.  Then there are some requests that are
performed without timers.
