If you're recording a script using the Jmeter Proxy, then yes, you can record the delay.

Before starting the proxy, right-click on it, and add a timer (personally, I use a gaussian
random timer) and set the devalues as appriopriate (I don't have the manual in front of me,
so cant remember what they are).  Note: one value is the constant delay, and the other is
the 'random' seed that will be added to the constant.  The constant delay is the bit that
will get updated, iirc.

Now, start the Jmeter proxy, and start recording.  You should find that you get a new gaussian
random timer attached to each sampler the proxy creates.

Subject: Record Think Time


Is it possible to record the delay between page requests (Think time) when recording a script?

According to one of the few references I found for jmeter and think time (,
"JMeter can create timers of your choice, where delay time is set according to the actual
delay during the recording period." - However, this doesn´t seem to be the case.

Any comments/help?
