Hi Peter,

Comments inline..

Kind regards,

We run our automated tests daily against the night build.  A subset of 
these tests  form our integration test suite and are used in acceptance 
of an official release (fortnightly)

>2. how do you structure the files?
Each test plan essentially represents a functional area.  This plan is 
driven by a data file, and each line in the datafile represents an 
individual test case.  The test plans are run using the following ant task:
 <jmeter jmeterhome="${home.jmeter}"
             <include name="**/*.jmx"/>

N.B. the stylesheet used is: jmeter-results-detail-report.xsl

Executing using this task means that the test directory structure is 
essentially lost.  However, it would be great if the directory structure 
in which the testplans reside (see attached diagram) could be replicated 
and used to store the result files produced.  Perhaps in addition to the 
single results file, if the user specifies a results file as part of the 
test plan, that the results for this individual plan are written out 
here also when executed automatically (this only occurs when the test 
plan is executed via the JMeter gui)
i.e. <stringProp 

Ideally, I would like to group a number of plans into a functional area 
that would represent a test suite.  This could then be identified by the 
xslt so that the results could be displayed in suites rather than as a 
block of tests

I think a big improvement in terms of reporting would be to provide 
historical results.  If the same set of tests are being executed 
nightly, it is very useful to be able to observe trends, particularly 
for performance tests. 

>3. do you use a naming convention for the directories and files?
See attached diagram

>4. how many test plans do you run?
Currently 10 test plans with a view to increasing this to reflect 600 
testcases in the next 4 weeks

>5. which listeners do you use to save the results
Assertion results
Graph results
Results tree
Aggregate report

>6. what kinds of charts and graphs do you want?
TPS would be a more meaningful measurement for me.
