JMeter Analysis Graphs

The JMeter graphs provide you with statistics for the JMeter tests during the scenario run.

Note: There is a difference in the default data granularity displayed in the JMeter graphs provided with the standard JMeter plugin, and the Analysis JMeter graphs, causing the results to look different. The granularity of the Analysis JMeter graphs is set as 1 data point every 5 seconds, as opposed to 1 data point every 1 second in the plugin graphs. You can change the granularity, as described below.

Set up JMeter Analysis graphs

You must manually add the JMeter graphs to your Analysis session.

  1. With the Analysis session open, click the Add New Graph button.
  2. In the Open a New Graph dialog box, find the JMeter Graphs section and select the graph you want to add. Click Open Graph.

Note: If JMeter graphs do not appear in the list, check the troubleshooting in JMeter Best Practices and Troubleshooting.

  1. The graph is displayed and added to the session Graphs list.
  2. To change the granularity, right-click on the graph and select Set Granularity. Change to the granularity you require.

Available JMeter graphs

Monitor Description

JMeter Active Threads

Shows how many active threads there are in each thread group (y-axis) against the elapsed time during the test run (x-axis).

JMeter Hits

Shows the number of hits (y-axis) per second (x-axis) generated by the test plan.

It does not include child samples from transactions and embedded resources.

JMeter Throughput

Shows the amount of throughput (y-axis) during each second of the test run (x-axis). Throughput is measured in bytes and represents the amount of bytes sent and received by JMeter during the load test.

JMeter Transactions

Shows the number of transactions (y-axis) per second (x-axis) for each sampler. It displays for each second the number of finished transactions.
