Subject RE: Remotely starting and stopping jmeter server from command line
Date Wed, 27 Aug 2008 18:05:32 GMT
Thank you for the response sebb the -X definitely is a much nicer way of
stopping jmeter-server then my kill -9.  The problem with starting
jmeter-server with a script is if I use ssh to start it jmeter-server
will not start as a background process so the script that I have to kick
off all of the test cases sits there and waits for the response from
ssh.  I am playing with some different scenarios to try to get this to
work with ssh, using setsid etc.  But if anyone has already done this
with a script, remotely start jmeter-server and has the code that would
be great.

Or just use the -X option:

There is no such option, nor is there ever likely to be.

AFAIK, that would require OS-specific code as well as knowledge of
login name and password.

If you are familiar with the server OS facilities, you may be able to
set something up using e.g. inetd which could listen on a suitable
port. Otherwise just create a suitable remote shell command script.
