Load Testing made easy with BlazeMeter & JMeter

Continuing for a moment with load testing lets have a look at Blaze Meter…

What the tools are

  • BlazeMeter: A Chrome App that allows you to record journeys through a system and export a load test plan to JMX Format. You will need to sign up for an account. BlazeMeter.com
  • JMeter: A load testing tool that can run files in JMX format. JMeter.Apache.org

How to create a load test plan

If installed correctly you should see the following logo in Chrome BlazeMeter

When clicked the BlazeMeter panel is displayed, allowing you to input a test plan name and change a few other basic parameters such as the type of system doing the load test and the origin of the traffic.

BlazeMeter_Panel

All you need to do is hit record and perform the actions you wish to load test.

When you have completed this you can export the captured JSON into a JMX file and download it by clicking the .JMX button on the panel.

Open and edit with JMeter

Open your newly downloaded test plan in JMeter, change the threads/ ramp up and loop count to whatever is desired.

Next add the appropriate listeners to your plan and hit Run. Job done.
