Subject Re: Running load test for N number of users and M number of transactions, using possibly two datasources
Date Thu, 30 Oct 2014 17:25:35 GMT
Hi, thanks for the reply yes it helps. the only difference that I made
instead of


I used


to be able to read the next row instead of reading the same record 100

However I believe, this is not a good strategy compared to visual studio
distrubuted load test features. I was using VS before and the controller
(in jmeter master) in VS controls the user distribution using a single
pointer across the slaves.
Here on the other hand, you have to specify which slave will run exactly
which users and transactions before each test run. If you change the number
of slaves or the number of users, you have to update your userDs and
transactionDs files and copy them over to the slaves.

I am just new to Jmeter and will see what is its strength and weaknesses
over Visual Studio, if you have any good comparison article between them
that I can also appreciate that.
