Subject Remote servers and ramp up
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2008 08:41:36 GMT

Hi all,

Our JMeter testing platform consists of 7 PCs - one controller and 6 running
Jmeter servers that we use for load generation. Many of the tests we run are
stress tests - where we gradually increase the load over time to establish
system capacity and breaking points. We use the JMeter "Ramp-Up Period"
setting to give this testing profile. This works fine when only running on a
single PC, however, we have issues running these types of tests spread across
our remote PCs. 

For example if we want to run a test with 60 threads, we have a thread group
with 10 threads on our controller, and then start the test running remotely
on the six load generators. In this scenario, if we use a ramp up, the load
is increased in steps of 6 threads, rather than gradually 1 thread at a time
as we would like. 

Can anyone suggest any way for use to get round this issue while still using
remote JMeter servers? Perhaps this is changed in a new version? We are
currently using 2.3RC4 and I've reviewed the release notes for later versions
but haven't seen anything. Any suggestions would be welcomed!
