Hits per second represents the number of requests sent to the server in one second (the load which the server is being hit).
Hits per second is the total load set by the concurrent virtual users on the server, no matter if they are executed successfully or not on the server side.
The number of requests executed successfully by the server per unit of time is called throughput. Learn about what is throughput in performance testing.

LoadFocus is a cloud testing platform, a load and stress testing tool which provides the infrastructure to run tests with thousands of concurrent users, from multiple cloud locations, in less than a few minutes, keep history of the results, compare different runs to inspect performance improvements or performance degradation. It also supports running JMeter load tests from the cloud and monitoring and audit web and mobile performance.
