Subject JMeter with Virtual Machine setup
Date Thu, 11 Mar 2010 16:12:19 GMT
Hi All,

I was wondering whether JMeter works on Virtual Machine environment. In my company we would
like to set up distributed testing environment (Master - Slave) using the Virtual Machines.
I am not sure whether JMeter can be installed and create test plans on Virtual Machines. Can
somebody shed some light on this please?

The next version of JMeter will allow HTTPS recording.
