When you choose to install JMeter using Homebrew you may find yourself a bit lost with JMeter configuration files and ask yourself: “What is the location of the configuration files now?”

To make it easy for you to find the folders please see below the mapping for the folders in the Standard JMeter vs Homebrew installed JMeter table.

Configuration itemStandard JMeterHomebrew installed JMeter
Configuration/bin folder<jmeter home>/bin/usr/local/Cellar/jmeter/5.3/libexec/bin/
Library folder for plugin dependencies<jmeter home>/lib/ext/usr/local/Cellar/jmeter/5.3/libexec/lib/
Plugins folder<jmeter home>/lib/ext/usr/local/Cellar/jmeter/5.3/libexec/lib/ext

By using the location from above you will now be able to:

  • edit user.properties / jmeter.properties file in “Configuration/bin folder”
  • add a dependency to JMeter in “Library folder”
  • add an extra plugin to JMeter in “Plugins folder”
