Subject Re: Do we have option to keep Steady state period in Jmeter tool
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2011 00:46:59 GMT
I believe this was more featured

But I havent used it.
The approach i would normally use is to simply run as many threads as I need
to generate the approximate load I want (however if your server starts
responding slower, this load will fall). im assuming you are trying to
generate some sort of background load.
