Jmeter Simple controller and Transaction controller

Open 1 Answers 24 Views

Hi friends,

I have one doubt regarding Simple and Transaction controller

MY Process is -> Goto Url -> Sign_in -> Create order

I recorded the script

Thread Group

My_page(Simple Controller)

  • api 1
  • api2
  • api3 (fails)

Page_Sigin_in(Simple Controller)

  • api1
  • api2
  • api3
  • api4


like this am having in my jmx file 

and i run the script in NON-GUI mode and created the dashboard Result 

I open the index.html file -> view the result 

Result is show for each single API

 so it is hard to identify  each module api

if single api fails it will show it separately

so i used Transaction Controller , it will consolidate the Api and gives the result for each controller,

 but if single api fails it's not showing the error result in dashboard 

Any solution for this ?

  • Simple Controller is basically a container for nested requests for logically grouping
  • Transaction Controller can act in 2 modes:

    1. Response time for each request plus cumulative time of all nested requests (if Generate parent sample box is not checked)
    2. Only cumulative time of nested requests (if Generate parent sample box is checked)

So make sure that Generate parent sample box is not ticked and you should have consistent behavior for both scenarios.
