Configuring JMeter for Flood Agent

The simplest way to run JMeter is to use our all in one bundle.

If you already have JMeter installed, you only need to add the Flood JMeter Plugin to start testing with Flood
  • download the latest Flood JMeter jar: flood-jmeter-5.1.1.jar.
  • copy flood-jmeter-5.1.1.jar to the JMeter extensions directory (i.e. $JMETER_HOME/lib/ext)

The minimal configuration is:
Linux & Mac
Windows
tools:
jmeter:
jmeter_home: /path/to/jmeter
tools:
jmeter:
jmeter_home: C:\Path\To\Jmeter
If required, you can add custom JMeter and JVM parameters:
tools:
jmeter:
jmeter_home: ~/tmp/jmeter
jvm_args: |
-Xms512m
jmeter_params: |
-Jtesting=true

For JMeter (and all supported tools) - there is the option to use our actual Flood Docker image if you do not wish to setup a local native tool binary install. Simply use the following properties in your config.yaml to let Flood know that you wish to use Flood's docker container for the respective load test tool instead of your own.
tools:
flood-element: true
gatling: true
jmeter: true
