relationship for threads and loop?
does the number of thread means number of user, and the loops means the times that each user execute the plan?
If i wanna simulate 10 users that both run application at same time. I should set thread=10 and loop=1, am i correct?
Re: relationship for threads and loop?
Here is a direct quote from the jmeter manual:
"Each thread will execute the test plan in its entirety and completely independently of other test threads. Multiple threads are used to simulate concurrent connections to your server application."
Number of Threads = Number of users to simulate.
Loop Count = Number of times to perform the test case.
So yes you are correct but you want to be careful of the meaning of "at the same time". Please take a look at ramp up in the Thread Group section of the manual.
