How to Run a New Apache JMeter Load Test
Run a new Apache JMeter Load Test with LoadFocus
It's quite easy to create a new load test for a website or API endpoint using the UI from the New Load Test page. You need to be logged into your account to be able to access this page and create a new test.
Steps to configure a new load test
1. Choose a Test Name
We automatically generate a test name for your test using the current date and time. You can change the test name for your load test by going to the Test Name input field and setting your own name.
2. Choose a Test Location
The Test Location is the geographical location from where the virtual clients/users will make requests to your Website/API. More details about the locations see here, also whitelisting IPs details can be found here.
3. Load Scenarios
We offer three predefined scenarios to get started fast: Initial Load, Warm-up Load and Moderate Load.
You can easily select any of them just by clicking the
Apply button visible in the square box.
4. Test Configuration
The Load Configuration step is the place from where you set up the number of virtual users, test duration or test iterations and ramp up time and the number of steps to ramp up the test to the desired load. Inspect visually with the chart how your load test will run by viewing the Ramp Up Time and Steps and the Duration of the Load Test.
5. Upload Apache JMeter Scripts
Here is where you need to upload your own JMX test script files. You can upload only one JMX file per test, and multiple CSV files if you need it.
Run JMeter Test and Inspect Results
After you've configured your load test and uploaded all necessary test files, you can start your load test.
