Jmeter Problems and Solutions

Written by


1) How to handle sessions in Jmeter?

Add->Pre-Processors->HTTP URL Re-writting Modifier for the sampler where your session variable is present
Then add your variable in session argument name and check chache session id.
Please see the Image below:


2) How to customize the user data/ how to run the script for multiple users in Jmeter?

i) Add Thread Group->Config Element-> CSV Data config Element
ii) Give user variables for the csv file column.
iii) Place the csv in the same folder where you kept the jmeter script or give full file path in filename

See the images below:

















3) How to run the Jmeter for more than 300 users?

i) Run in Non GUI distributed mode to run for more than 300 users. It depends on RAM size. For the system with 3.2 GB, you can run up-to 1000 users.

Configure Jmeter for Distributed testing

Place your script and csv in /bin folder of the jmeter.

Open command prompt , go to jmeter bin directory and give the following command

jmeter -n -t testplan.jmx -R ip1,ip2 -l resultfilename

4) How to record Jmeter script?
you can capture headers and parameters of the request by Fiddler or HTTPWATCH and write the script manually, or configure proxy and use Recording controller.

Detailed manual is available in Apache Site:

5) How to extract the data using regex in Jmeter?

There is an element called preprocessor->regularexpression.

Add it under the request you want and then follow the below steps:

i) Give reference name (any name , that will be substituted in the place of actual parameter value in the request)

ii) Give the regular expression , for example if the text to be extracted is ‘world’ from text=’world’, then the regex will be like this text='(.+?)’

iii) Give template as $1$

iv) Match No would be which row of the value from the web page , it may be 1, 2,3 etc. If you want random row then give ‘0’

v)Default value is a string that will be sent to the server when it fails to extract the data. it can be anything for Ex: Loginid_Failed

Please see the Image below:








6) what are the charcters used in regex?

Regular Expressions use certain characters and those have special meaning. Following are the list of such characters.
( ) : grouping
[ ] : character classes
{ } : repetition
* + ? : repetition
. : wild-card character
: escape character
| : alternatives
^ $ : start and end of string or line

7) How can i use special charcters with actual meaning in regex?

Add backslash to the special character to mean it as it is, for example (),$,^.

8)  Mention example for regular expression to extract string with whitespace

Regular Expression : <url.values+(.+?)=”(.+?)”


<url.value    : Extract the string <url.value

<url.values  : Extract the string <url.value followed by white space

<url.values+Extract the string <url.value followed by white space and

<url.values+(.+?) : Extract the string <url.value followed by white space and any character with 1 or more match

<url.values+(.+?) =  : Extract the string <url.value followed by white space and any character with 1 or more match with equals symbol 

<url.values+(.+?) =”(.+?)” : Extract the string <url.value followed by white space and any character with 1 or more match with equals symbol  and any charcter with 1 or more matches inside double quotes.

So the final string returned from above condition may be like this:

<url.value groupid=”1234trurbd93737″

9) How to use java program inside Jmeter?

Java program can be called inside jmeter by using BeanShell Pre/Post Processor.

10) How to send file with Jmeter script?

There is a column in http request as ‘ Send Files with the Request’

Give the filepath,parameter name and MIME type.

For sending different files , give it in CSV file and add the variable in CSVconfig Element. (Any question related this, you can post your questions)

11) How to capture Jmeter results?

There are lot of graphs/listeners available for jmeter. Or if the purpose is to find response time for the request, use ‘Aggregate Report’ and take min, max, avg timings(in milliseconds) . That will help a lot.
Or you can download plugin for colorful graphs.


12) How to View the results of JTL file created in NON-GUI mode?
Open any Jmeter script, go to Aggregate report listener, Browse the file and Open it. After that you can Save it as CSV file.

13) How to test ‘HTTPS’ applications using Jmeter?
In HTTP Request default, mention the protocol as ‘https

14) How to rectify Jmeter out of memory error-heap space when opening Jmeter?
Right Click and Edit Jmeter.bat file , increase Xmx value and check.

15) Where to Download Jmeter latest version?

16) How to execute ssh command or shell script on remote server using Jmeter?
Using SSH sampler it can be done. For detailed explanation see here

17) How to run endurance test using Jmeter for more than 8 hours?

Using Timers , it is possible to run endurance test using jmeter, please look at this

  • Hi

    Can you describe about “Give the filepath,parameter name and MIME type.” I need to upload a image and register into a app along with many other details which are already coded. I am worried as to how to upload a image. Can you explain clearly about the steps

    Prudvi January 29, 2014 7:56 pm Reply
    • Hi Prudvi,
      Please find my explanation for your queries,
      Filepath, Parameter Name and MIME type should be given in the section ‘Send files with the request’ section of HTTP Sampler
      Filepath :
      1. give the filepath oft that file which has to be sent with the request in
      For example : D:testdatatest.jpg
      2. Parameter Name:
      This is the variable name given by developers to refer the file in that request(if you capture the request using fiddler or any other header capturing tools , you can see it)
      3. MIME Type
      It is nothing but content type based on your input file type such as application/json, application/xml etc….

      Suganthi January 29, 2014 9:51 pm Reply
      • Thanks for the prompt reply.. Here i am trying to upload image so MIME type is goin to be multipart/form-data ??? Please confirm.
        Also can u explain abt capturing request to find the parameter name. After I do this i see a fileuploadException.

        Prudvi January 30, 2014 10:59 am Reply
  • I will be more precise.. i am trying to load test a account creation into an application, for creating the account, mandatory fields are name, email.password and image. i have parameters for all the above except image.I need to load test it by creating multiple accounts at a time and monitor the performance. I added CSV files for all the fields like name, email,password and mentioned same in code. Now in “Send files with request” part. i gave path of file in file path, parameter name as mentioned by developer(which i dont see in the webservice provided).

    In HTTP header manager i mentioned content type as multipart/form-data and under the path in HTTP request, i mentioned i checked the option(tick marked)– “use multipart/form-data for POST” and MIME as multipart/form-data.

    Error i see after running one sample : fileuploadException and sometimes : “{“errorCode”:”100″,”errorMessage”:”API version do not match”,”currentTime”:”30 Jan 2014 05:59:30 GMT”}”

  • Hi prudvi,

    In order to support your question very specific , i need below details,

    1) Is your application a web application?
    2) If it’s a web application, try recording your upload in Fiddler and share that request details with me from there you can extract MIME Type and File parameter exactly
    3) Other configuration seems to be fine, I don’t think so you need to use HTTP-Header manager since you have already defined MIME type in file parameters list(This has to be verified as per your app)

    Suganthi January 30, 2014 2:14 pm Reply
  • Thanks for the reply again..Suganthi,
    1. No, It is a Mobile application and create account happens in the mobile only.
    2. I got the MIME type, for a image file upload,it is image/jpeg.
    I tried recording the response when kept in REST client and response is monitored, i could see parameters getting settled itself in the Parameters field(instead of body data).Then i tried running it in JMETER, it worked.
    Now when i tried to run multiple samples by configuring CSV files to get the data dynamically in the webservice parameters, i am not able to get the response.

    I am sure you would help me in this regard.

    • Prudvi,
      Are u getting this error when you upload multiple files?
      Are u still using HTTP-Header manager, can you remove that and check?

      If single file upload is success then the following is the procedure to run multiple files:
      1) Give all the filenames along with filepath in the csv and configure it in jmeter, assign a variable in the same for example ‘filename’
      2) In Filepath of ‘send parameters with the request’ give ${filename}, other parameters remains same.

  • Thanks for great guide. However for point 1) How to handle sessions in jmeter? I would rather go for HTTP Cookie Manager as JMeter is smart enough to take care of sessions and deal with cookie-based authentication.

    • Hi Dmitri,

      Yes i agree there are multiple ways to handle sessions in jmeter where it all depends on what you use and what you choose, I would like to use the following options for handling web sessions,
      1) HTTP URL rewriting modifier
      2) Regular expressions

      • Hi,
        May be my problem is same as above,
        Iam using Jmeter with CSV, and setup successfully,
        but after completing the test, the users in the CSV file does’t perform the actions which are in recorded in the scripts.(Scenario is Login to application and start a course and logged out).
        can you please help me…
        what to do?

        • Hi Sanath,

          It means that your csv is not accessed by the app. can you recheck that csv element is added correctly and configured … for example csv should be added to the correct element, If you add under thread group it can be accessed by all the element of that thread group and configuration means check the name of the csv file and the file you created,path of the csv file and where the csv is being kept….

          • Hi Suganthi,
            Thanks for your response,
            No, The csv was configured correctly, i can find out the different users available in csv file using ‘View Results Tree’ Requests. and also i can found the all urls with respective JSESSIONIDs.
            The problem is after completing the test, when i go for verify from frient end, the action is not performed(Actual scenario is trying to add course, but not added the course)

          • Is your app is web app.. if so did you handle the sessions?

          • Suggest me any other configuration required


            Sanath September 17, 2014 2:47 pm
          • Sanath,

            If you handled the sessions already using either regex or url rewriting modifier , then check that you have recorded the script correctly. few times there are scenarios that
            POST and GET requests are not given correctly in the HTTP REQUEST METHOD. Also Check that all the parameters for form submissions are correctly given in the sampler.

      • I am testing a web application,
        I create a script just to test the performance of Login page.
        For analysis and better result i did five iterations on same environment. Sometime i am getting huge difference in response time among iterations.

        Rachna September 4, 2014 1:05 pm Reply
        • Hi Rachna,

          Usually the results wont be same always as it adds network latency as well… just analyze that where is your server located and from which place you are accessing the app by jmeter.. i usually run in the VM where my app is deployed

          Suganthi Thangavel September 17, 2014 2:24 pm Reply
  • Hi,

    I am getting value for Min and max change every time i am running the same script.Please suggest Why?

    Pooja July 21, 2014 10:45 am Reply
    • It is because of the network latency. And value will not be same always,it will be in particular range. Find the network latency and subtract it from the value.

    • Can you capture the headers and parameter manually from fiddler and create the script?There you can find the cookies, if your app is https , definitely there will be sessions, and handle it using regex or http url rewriting modifier

      Note : Do not capture .jpg, .jpg requests until it is required

      Refer :

    Once again many thanks for guiding me in the proper direction , I have manage to rectify the issues . its was a cookie related issue and have to manually specified in the cookie manager , what I know about the http cookie manager is it will handle the cookie automatically but in my case cookie need to sent separate for all the request . Any way now my cases are passing with proper response code. Actually now am stuck with another issues and don’t know how to tackle it . The issue is one treadgroup having multiple request say ( A B C) , A is creating a workspace ( it creates a name ) , B is adding series and C is Saving that workspace. So the first execution passes this but on second execution its failing with message A already exists , B Series already exist and C already existing . So how to make every time it should create a new A and New B and New C so that my test cases pass every execution. In short how to generate a new workspace name ( this new workspace generates a unique woskspace id ) and in B how to capture this workspace id and save to it. Hope this time also have explained it to my best and you will be able to guide me to the solutions.

    • Glad to know that you are able to resolve cookie issue.

      To achieve uniqueness in passing the input parameter add ‘csvdataset config’ and customize your data. Through csvdataset config element you can specify all the input values in a csv. So if you add 5 rows in a csv with a variable name and run thread group for 5 threads , for each thread one row will be sent to the jmeter.

    • Hi Neelu,

      With jmeter you can not test UI . And if your intention is testing the protocols/web like http,ftp,soap etc… then multiple windows does not matter.
      its about the link/web page when click on the button/link.

  • Hi, nice site.
    My problem in jmeter 2.13 is to open the saved aggregateReports (as csv). To reproduce it, try to open your csv-file directly after saving it. In jmeter.log I get:
    2016/07/22 10:18:30 INFO – aggregate.csv does not appear to have a valid header. Using default configuration.
    2016/07/22 10:18:30 WARN – Error parsing field ‘elapsed’ at line 1 java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: “Label”
    2016/07/22 10:18:30 WARN – jmeter.reporters.ResultCollector: Problem reading JTL file: aggregate.csv

    Can you reproduce it? Any idea to solve that?

  • Hi Sugandhi,

    I am using JMeter to connect to MQ. What is my JNDI Initial Context Factory.

    I have tried all combos, but i get the error as either missing class file or object could not be instantiated – as follows;

    Following are my settings:

    Queue connection factory:
    JNDI Initial Context Factory : ?

    JNDI Properties – that are populated & blanks.

    Queue.Q.Req = myQueue Name = myUserID = myUserPW = True
    java.naming.factory.initial = ?

    Provider URL : tcp://myURL:port

    Error message is: Response message: javax.naming.NoInitialContextException: Cannot instantiate class: [Root exception is java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: ]

    FYI – reinstalled Java & JMeter.

  • How do I configure a parameter so that a distinct value is used for each occurrence of the parameter in a single request?

    Here is an example of the request:${stock},${stock},${stock}

    I want the request to be sent like this:,MSFT,CSCO

    Distinct values for the parameter are input from csv file under the column name “stock”.

  • hi,
    I am working on multiple file request using csv data set config. It is working fine.
    My querry is now i will add another row where i should use only those rows which has ‘true’ and then pass $(filename).
    In my current csv file, in the fourth column have created values ‘true’ or ‘false’ (randomly)’
    Now based on whether the row entry has ‘true’ then i will call the REST command.

  • I have a Post request in Jmeter in which, ViewState parameter is passing but value for that parameter is combination of alphabates, number, special characters . so while send that parameter request is encoding the special character for e.g. i have forward slash in paramter so while sending it is converting it to %2F and that leads in failing the request

    Solution i have tried is:

    uncheck URL Encode check box
    UTF-8 in content encoding
    for ViewState providing ${__urldecode(‘${viewState}’)} value as Parameter value, which(viewState) i am fetching from previous response
    used replace function in Parameter value
    So what i am expecting is while sending Post request parameters should not get encoded. Can someone please provide solution
