Subject Re: ThreadGroup start and end time in date format
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 16:23:11 GMT
Thanks for the clarification.  So I am curious as to how to define a specific start time (as
opposed to "now") in non-gui mode from a shell script.  I have managed to leverage the unix
date command and calculated the epoch in ms that way, but it's a bit clunky, relying on the
correct date format.  Then I passed the calculated epoch into JMeter as a property defined
in my test plan.

Is this the best practice?  How do other users do this (or everyone just uses "now") ?

 I was hoping there is something similar to a "--date" command line option accepting a SimpleDateFormat.

Just want to make sure I didn't miss an obvious or more straight-forward solution.

No it doesn't apply to the start_time property.

Sorry, I misread your original question.

You can only use milliseconds in the JMX file.

instead of epoch?  Similar to how result timestamps support both formats.
