There is an option "Retrieve All Embedded Resource From HTML files" when configuring "HTTP Request HTTP Client".
Now in my case, one page request corresponds to ~11 requests sent to the server for fulfilling the CSS,JS and images required for that page.
In case of load testing the page let's say with 5 Threads and Ramp up of 2.5 seconds, shall we consider 55 requests sent to the server ( 5 Threads * 11(Number of subrequests)) and use this number to calculate the throughput and Avg. res time? If I consider 55 request throughput comes in acceptable limits and otherwise it hardly reaches 14 requests per minute.
At the moment JMeter shows the Avg. Res Time and calculates the throughput based on number of threads.
