It's not generally a good idea to run JMeter on the same host as the
target server.

For performance testing, the server should only run the production applications.
Adding other applications such as JMeter just reduces the resources
available to the production system.

For occasional functional tests, it may be OK to run JMeter on the
production system, but for performance testing it's generally best to
run JMeter (indeed any test application) on a different host,
otherwise the results may be affected by the test application.
