Test Duration when we execute JMeter Test with 1 user and more



  • I have concerns about the duration of executing JMeter Test Scenario. In fact, if we execute a manual test with 1 user in 1 hour, we will find the same duration or little more with 3 user. But, with JMEter test the duration with 1 user will be multiplied by the number of users.

    During my scripting with this tool, I've noticed that JMeter always wait for the response of the request to pass to another request. It's like we have 1 user doing the work of multiple users.

    Does any body have explanations about this issue? Can we configure JMeter to perform like we have x users working in // ?



  • As far as I know jmeter doesn't work in a sequential order. What jmeter does is, it takes all the requests and send them to the server/host all at the same time. So if you have configured it for 3 users making 1 http(s) request, that is 3*1 http(s) requests will be sent to the server/host all simultaneously and then it will wait for the response!
