Subject Re: Running Remote, via ANT

This is using the ant jmeter task.

All the settings which define e.g. number of threads are defined as part of
the ant task.  So does that mean they should get passed over?

Network congestion isnt a problem for me at this time - i'm doing very high
numbers of tiny requests.  

I'll try JMeter 2.3.1 and see if it makes any difference, but if there's any
other way i can debug or analyse this problem then please let me know!

(I'll also check the version of my ant task, maybe thats old?)
