It’s so easy to record a load test for your website, just add to Chrome Browser the JMeter in the Cloud Chrome Extension and you’ll be able to record and run a load in less than 60 seconds.
Let’s have a deeper look how to do this.
Steps to Record and Run Load Tests
- Add to Chrome the LoadFocus | JMeter Load Testing in the Cloud extension
- Open the extension and Sign In / Up (free account available)
- Click Record JMeter Test button (choose which requests you want to record by selecting the checkboxes below the Record button)
- Start navigating to your website and to your website pages (during this time your requests are recorded in a new load test)
- Stop the recording and view the generated load test
This is it, less than 60 seconds to record a load test.No need to install or start Apache JMeter, recording is done in the browser, and running the test in the cloud.
Now you can:
- Run the Load Test in the Cloud with JMeter Cloud Load Testing tool from LoadFocus
- Click the “Download Test” button and download the test script locally and load it in Apache JMeter (the generated script is in JMX format)
