To convert a web application test from Apache JMeter to LoadView format you can transfer data manually in a few basic steps or contact our technical support for assistance.
Configuring a Task
To transmitting data manually:
1. First, open the JMX file with the script you need to convert in the Apache JMeter application.
2. Create a new LoadView Stress Test and choose HTTP(S) Task.
3. Copy request data from JMeter fields to the corresponding fields of the LoadView HTTP(S) task. For example, copy the target URL to the URL field, set up HTTP method in the Request Type field, add headers in the Headers section and copy their names and values.
4. Configure the task settings as described in Configuring HTTP(S) Task and save the LoadView device.
5. If you have more than one request to the same web application within JMeter script, add new tasks to the current device and copy corresponding JMeter data for each request as was described. Because of the global headers in JMeter you need to copy the headers from the JMeter HTTP Header Manager to each task of the LoadView device.
Configuring a Stress Test Scenario
Once the HTTP parameters of the test have been configured in the LoadView, the LoadView test execution scenario must be set up. Use the Thread Properties of JMeter Thread Group to specify the corresponding Load Type parameters of the LoadView Test Scenario:
- To specify the rump-up number of users and time period, the Raise By scenario steps are used. Transfer the Number of Threads and Ramp-up Period values to the corresponding fields of the Raise By step. The Ramp-up Period value needs to be converted to minutes before copying.
- To emulate the test loop, add the Lower By step after each Raise By step to return the load to the starting point.
- To execute the required number of loops, repeat the ramp-up and rump-down steps as many times as specified in the Loop Count parameter.
