JMeter - Thread Group


The first step you want to do with every JMeter Test Plan is to add a Thread Group element.


The Thread Group tells JMeter:

  • the number of users (called threads) you want to simulate ,
  • how often the users should send requests,
  • and how many requests they should send.


  • Number of threads define the number of Users.
  • Ramp-up Period defines the time period where all user must be started. For instance, with 5 users and 5 second Ramp-Up Period, we get a delay of 1 second between the start of each user (5 users / 5 seconds = 1 user per second). A value to 0 means that JMeter will start immediately all users.
  • Loop Count defines the number of times that the test plan must repeat.
