For non-interactive testing, one may choose to run JMeter without the GUI. To do so, use the following command options:
-n This specifies JMeter is to run in non-gui mode
-t [name of JMX file that contains the Test Plan].
-l [name of JTL file to log sample results to].
-j [name of JMeter run log file].
-r Run the test in the servers specified by the JMeter property "remote_hosts"
-R [list of remote servers] Run the test in the specified remote servers
The script also lets you specify the optional firewall/proxy server information:
-H [proxy server hostname or ip address]
-P [proxy server port]
Example: jmeter -n -t my_test.jmx -l log.jtl -H my.proxy.server -P 8000
If the property jmeterengine.stopfail.system.exit is set to true (default is false), then JMeter will invoke System.exit(1) if it cannot stop all threads. Normally this is not necessary.
