JMeter Testing : How to run 100 Requests per second

This tutorial guides you on how to run 100 requests per second using JMeter and test your system whether it can perform as expected while responding n requests per second.

JMeter Testing : How to run 100 Requests per second

Performance requirements usually state that how many requests per second (RPS) or throughput need to be achieved for the application. Let’s say the requirement is to run 100 requests per second.

And let’s say you wanted to test the performance of your website using JMeter. In this section you will see how to configure and adjust JMeter settings to run 100 requests per second to check the performance of your website.

In order to achieve this, we are going to use JMeter plugins like Throughput Shaping Timer and Transactions per Second plugins.

Thread Group – Thread Properties

First, you need to figure out how many threads needed to produce 100 requests per second (RPS). For example, if your website page’s response time may be around 2.0 sec and target RPS is 100, you have to configure thread properties as shown in the following picture.

Thread Group

Note, I have configured Number of Threads (users) as 500, Ramp-up period (seconds) as 5, Loop Count as 5 and Duration (seconds) as 60. That is, this test is going to run for 2500 samples in 60 seconds duration.

JMeter : Throughput Shaping Timer RPS settings

Next, you need to install plugin called Throughput Shaping Timer and do the following shaping timer setting for the test plan as shown below. I had configured RPS schedule for the test plan as shown in the following picture.

Throughput Shaping Timer

Basically, what I had set is Start RPS and End RPS for each duration (seconds) i.e., the overall test will run for 60 seconds based on the schedule set for RPS easily and to test the required throughput or RPS.

JMeter : Transaction per Second

The following output shows the actual RPS for the test plan. You could clearly see that we could run more than 100 requests per second using this test plan and JMeter adjustments/ settings.

how to run 100 requests per second

Below is the summary report which shows the performance metrics like what is the average response time (Average: 1.9 sec) and average throughput (RPS : 42.2 requests per second) for 2500 samples.

Summary Report n requests per second

That’s it. You had learnt how to run n (100) requests per second and check the performance of your website.

Hope it helped 🙂
