Create Automated Performance Test in Jmeter with Firefox and Monitor Report

In a nutshell, Jmeter can be used for automatic testing of requests in Firefox. By refining the test results through first-hand experiences, we can optimize the requests, reduce errors, and enhance the user experience. Let’s meet in another video for more exciting insights! Keep the good vibes flowing! 🚀

In this video, we will be discussing how to automate the request process using Firefox and JMeter. In the first video, we manually defined our requests and viewed the reports. In this second video, we will be automatically generating requests by browsing through Firefox. We will then configure JMeter to extract the GET and POST requests, and run them as a test.

Setting up Firefox for Automatic Testing

To set up Firefox for automatic testing, we will need to make some configurations. First, we will need to open Firefox and go to the settings by clicking on the three lines in the top right corner. Then, we will need to select "Options" and navigate to the "General" tab. Here, we will need to select "Manually configure proxy settings" and enter "127.0.0.1" as the HTTP proxy and "8888" as the port. We will also need to check the "Use this proxy server for all protocols" box.

Next, we will need to add a security certificate by going to "about:preferences#privacy" in Firefox and scrolling down to the "Certificates" section. Here, we will need to click on "View Certificates" and then select "Import". We will then need to import the certificate file and restart Firefox.

Generating Requests and Configuring JMeter

Once Firefox is configured, we can begin generating requests by browsing through the website. We will then need to configure JMeter to extract the GET and POST requests by adding a script recorder under "Non-Test Elements". We will then need to name the test plan and add a recording controller to record the tests.

To make the test more efficient, we will need to filter out unnecessary requests and exclude certain file extensions under "Request Filtering". We will also need to create a user-defined variable for the member data under "User Defined Variables" and add assertions to ensure that the tests are running correctly.

Conclusion

In conclusion, JMeter and Firefox can be used together to automate the request process and run performance tests. By configuring Firefox and JMeter correctly, we can extract the necessary requests and create efficient tests. This process can be further optimized by filtering out unnecessary requests and creating user-defined variables. With these tools, we can accurately test the performance of our website and identify any issues that need to be addressed.

Key Takeaways

  • Firefox can be configured to generate requests for JMeter testing
  • JMeter can extract GET and POST requests and record them using a script recorder
  • Filtering out unnecessary requests and creating user-defined variables can make the test more efficient
  • Assertions can be added to ensure the tests are running correctly.

FAQ

Q: What is the purpose of automating the request process?

A: Automating the request process allows us to run performance tests more efficiently and accurately. It eliminates the need for manual testing and ensures that all necessary requests are included in the test.

Q: How can JMeter be configured to extract the necessary requests?

A: JMeter can be configured to extract the necessary requests by adding a script recorder and a recording controller. This will record all requests made during the test and allow us to filter out unnecessary requests.

Q: Why is it important to filter out unnecessary requests?

A: Filtering out unnecessary requests can make the test more efficient and accurate. It reduces the amount of data that needs to be processed and ensures that only relevant requests are included in the test.
