Cross Browser & Network Bandwidth simulation in JMeter
I am using JMeter 2.8 to test an application, where the need is to simulate different user groups accessing application with different browsers and varying network bandwidth.
How can I simulate the same in JMeter, i.e. what could be the design of test plan in this case?
Your suggestions/help on the same would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Well, to simulate different browsers accessing the application, I found one solution of providing user-agent string under HTTP header, so that the requested server gets to know that the page is requested from which browser.
Therefore, the design of test plan would look like:
Thread Group 1
HTTP Header user agent 1
Thread Group N
HTTP Header user agent N
Now my question to this design is that whether or not different listeners would get different results on the basis of user agent string & thread group properties?
Also, what could be the design if network speed/bandwidth also needs to be simulated along with browser simulation?
