Subject RE: How to store the result into a file and re-open it?
Date Thu, 17 Feb 2005 16:38:13 GMT
Dear JMeter Users and Zdxu:

Here is more than a hint. Here are excruciatingly detailed instruction copied from my company's
internal documentation for working with JMeter. 

Sincerely yours,


Saving Listener results

Applies To

JMeter 2.0.1
JMeter 2.0.2


You want to save Listener results from running a test plan and look at them later. Also, you
want to remove Listener elements that display results in the GUI, because they make the test
plan run slower.


JMeter uses different Listener elements to display different kinds of results, but can record
results for all Listener elements in one file. Specifying a file name in any one Listener
saves all data for all Listener types. JMeter uses a file extension of .jtl for result files,
regardless of whether the internal file format is CSV or XML.

1.	Set JMeter to record results in XML format:

a.	In the C:\jakarta-jmeter-2.0.2\bin directory, open the file.
b.	Change the value of the output format to XML:

Warning   If the output format is "csv", the solution will not work.
	Note   Output format is different than output file extension. You can save results in either
CSV or XML output format in a file with the standard ".jtl" extension. This is useful because
JMeter uses ".jtl" as the default extension for result files.
2.	In the test plan, add a Listener of type Simple Data Writer and specify a file name. A
Simple Data Writer records results only to a file. It does not display data in the GUI.

Example 1: Results.jtl
	Example 2: C:\MyResults\Results.jtl
	Note   By default, results are saved in the C:\jakarta-jmeter-2.0.2\bin directory. Specify
a fully qualified path if you want to save the results file in another directory.
3.	Remove Listeners that display data in the GUI from the test plan.
4.	Run the test plan.
5.	To display recorded results in a Listener:

a.	Add the Listener to the test plan, such as Aggregate Report.
b.	In the Filename text box, specify the file.
	Example: Results.jtl
c.	Press Enter.
	The Listener displays results recorded in the file.

Note   The results file does not save the Request tab page and Response data tab page information
in the View Results Tree listener.

Anyone give me some hint?
Some listener could store the result, text and graphics into a file, but how
to open it if I send these files to another JMeter user?
