Subject Re: Adding threads while running

It's not possible to add more threads after starting a test.

One way round this is to use a long ramp-up period, but this needs to
be decided before starting the test.

Another is to use a throughput controller which depends on a property,
and change the value of the property at run-time using the BeanShell

If you parameterise the test plan appropriately, you can reuse the
same test plan for different numbers of threads. See the JMeter FAQ.

Threads can be shut down individually using the On Error element in
conjunction with a suitable assertion. Or the BeanShell server can be
used to shut threads down remotely.

I don't know if the BeanShell server works with multiple Thread Groups
- probably not.
