Apache JMeter — load testing tool.
For Apache JMeter you need to install Java, see my article – Installing Java on Linux.
For an example I’ll install Apache JMeter in Ubuntu Desktop 18.04.
After Java is installed, copy the link to the archive with the latest version of Apache JMeter from the official site http://jmeter.apache.org/download_jmeter.cgi and download it:
Extract the archive:
tar -xf apache-jmeter-4.0.tgz
cd apache-jmeter-4.0/bin/ ./jmeter
After the startup, a message was displayed that you can create tests in the Apache JMeter graphical mode, and you can execute them only from the terminal, for example:
jmeter -n -t [jmx file] -l [results file] -e -o [Path to web report folder]
By the way, Apache JMeter in Windows is run through the jmeter.bat file.
