Subject RE: Resource Consumption
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2009 06:44:16 GMT
Not really on topic. But if the application runs on JVM Hotspot ( Sun)
>1.6.0_10, you have with the JDK a tool "visualVM" in the jdk/bin directory,
JMX based ( with a little configuration for remote  authentification) ,
that returns this kind of information and more about JVM and application.
You must be care of the overhead of this tool ( comparing with two stresses
Jmeter with and without the tool) 

Cordialement / Best regards

Jmeter can only be used to simulate concurrent load, which can tell you a
problem exists, but can't really tell you where or what the problem is .
If you want resource consumption (CPU memory) you will have to use a OS/app
server specific tool. There is a monitor results Listener in jmeter but it
is specific to tomcat (but you could implement it for your web container).
thread deadlock etc would be indicated to Jmeter as the sample does not
return (or takes increasingly longer times with loads) but you would have to
profile your application while jmeter is running to diagnose the cause


For threads deadlock etc
