I need to do some stress test on Oracle DB using jmeter. I have downloaded jmeter on my linux box and configured it. Is there a good online resource to guide me through the process of setting up jmeter for stress test ?? I am new to this tool. jakarta.apache.org/jmeter does have an online manual but it is good for those who know what they are doing. I still need to know what to do with this tool. Thank You.
Using JMeter, We could do Stress Test on a) Http Servers b) Ftp Servers and c) SQL queries. JMeter is swing application , where you could configure your Stress Test by giving information like URL No of concurent Users No Of requests etc. JMeter then spans n threads (simulating the concurrent users) and keeps sending the request to the URL you specified.Once the test is over it gives you a graph how much time each request took. You could get many valuable information out of that graph like does ur system slows down after some time etc
