JMeter - Listener


A listener is a component that shows/records the results of the samples.

If you only wish to record certain samples:

  • add the Listener as a child of the sampler
  • Or use a Simple Controller to group a set of samplers, and add a Listener.

Listeners are processed at the end of the (scope|node) in which they are found.


The listeners section of the components page has full descriptions of all the listeners.

The results can be shown in in different ways:

However, they all write the same raw data to the JMeter - (Sampler Result | Sample | Listener (Output|Results|Data) File) - if one is specified.
