How to compare jmeter graphs of multiple test cycles efficiently?
I created an automated jmeter test which gives me these nice reports:
The test is executed every day. If I want to compare two cycles, then I need to open two charts and compare them, but I would like to see the graphs of both test cycles in one chart overlapped. Whats the best practice to achieve that? My jmeter test also creates a result xml file which should contain all the required information. Should I import that to other plotting software?
There is Merge Results plugin which can be used for combining 2 or more .jtl results files, you can give them different prefixes and plot them onto one chart:
- There is BM.Sense cloud analysis service which basically does the same, but in the fancy web interface
You can also put your JMeter test under continuous integration, for example using Jenkins. Jenkins has Performance Plugin which adds execution results to the build dashboard and you will also have Performance Trend charts showing your application performance metrics compared from run to run
