The JMeter "ramp-up period" feature (on each thread group) can do something
like this - is that any help?

Subject: Re: Programmatic increase of the amount of virtual users.

A possible solution has just popped into my mind. I am running jmeter in
nongui mode from the command line (using a Unix shell script), passing with
-J the various parameters to my script, among which the number of virtual
users. I could actually perform multiple jmeter calls in a while-loop
statement with sleep pauses in between like...

while [ condition ]
    jmeter -n -t -Jvusers=$VUSERS ....(truncated)....
    sleep 10

Or is it better (and/or easier) to have just one jmeter process running and
handle the increase of the virtual users in the test plan script?

Suggestions welcomed
