JMeter - 2 minute tutorial

Introduction to Listener

Listeners are logger/display elements of Apache JMeter. You need to add atleast one listener to capture the results (response time, throughput etc) of the test plan and display it.

JMeters provides many kinds of listeners are like graphical, tabular, flat file etc.

Listeners differ only in the way they display result. However, all listeners create identical log files.

You can select the fields you want to log like response times, urls, response headers, etc using Configure button. You can also select whether to store the result in xml or csv format.

A log file created by one listener can be reopened by another listener for a different display since data is logged identically by all listeners.
