Please respond to "JMeter Users List"






In your case with 20 pages , if you are willing to create 20 samplers , 
then
yes you could group these under a Random Order Controller. However when 
you
use something like a CSV file (so you have one sampler but the path to the
sampler varies with each iteration) you cannot use a Random order
controller. Random order Controllers are useful when you have journeys 
that
you can vary (e.g. one set of pages is user searches catalog, another is
user checks out data etc)

regards
deepak
