Running Jmeter multiple independent jmx tests in parallel


I have a scenario where there are several independent jmx files, each of them has their own threadgroup etc. Using JMeter Ant script I can fire them all in sequence and collect the result in a jtl file. My challenge here is to do the same thing but fire off the tests in parallel. Please note that Include Controller is not an option since I want to use(or honor) the ThreadGroup and User Defined Variables in each jmx files. Thanks for your help


Perhaps <a href="https://ant.apache.org/manual/Tasks/parallel.html" rel="nofollow">Parallel Ant Task</a> is what you're looking for.

However <parallel> directive is not thread safe so I wouldn't recommend to use it with JMeter Ant task and consider using i.e. command-line mode, maven plugin or custom Java class which will spawn individual JMeter tests with it.

See <a href="http://blazemeter.com/blog/5-ways-launch-jmeter-test-without-using-jmeter-gui" rel="nofollow">5 Ways To Launch a JMeter Test without Using the JMeter GUI</a> guide for details of the approaches, hope this helps to find the one which matches your environment.


Yes, Ant parallel solves this problem.
