JMeter not making HTTP requests
I have followed the instructions from the "2. Getting Started" section, specifically the "5. Building a Web Test Plan" and I can't seem to get any HTTP requests to work as the graph never has any data in it. I changed to test on one of our internal websites so that I could check the Apache access logs and indeed no requests were being made. The Green box lights up at the top right of JMeter's GUI. Any ideas?
Platforms tested: Windows XP and Solaris 8 Sparc
JMeter version: 2.0.2
Java version: 1.4.2_01
Any advice appreciated. Cheers.
Re: JMeter not making HTTP requests
This problem was down to me setting the loop count values as "0". The documentaion incorrectly stated:
" Finally, clear the checkbox labeled "Forever", and enter a value of 2 in the Loop Count field. This property tells JMeter how many times to repeat your test. If you enter a loop count value of 0, then JMeter will run your test only once. To have JMeter repeatedly run your Test Plan, select the Forever checkbox."
The loop count needs to be at least 1. The documentation has now been corrected.
