Database Testing With JMeter

JMeter database testing starts with downloading a JAR file, placing it in JMeter, and then heading to the thread group. Read on for all of the details.

SignalFx is the only real-time cloud monitoring platform for infrastructure, microservices, and applications. The platform collects metrics and traces across every component in your cloud environment, replacing traditional point tools with a single integrated solution that works across the stack.

We're here with a new topic: JMeter database testing. For database testing, we have downloaded a mysql-connector-java JAR file and placed it in the lib folder of JMeter. Now, we start with the thread group.


Now, we make a JDBC connection configuration.


In the JDBC connection configuration, we will define the database URL, JDBC driver class, the MySQL username and password, etc.


Now, we add a sampler for the JDBC request.


In the JDBC request, we define the query. For example, if we're running a select query, we select the select statement in Query Type.


We can see the result in the View Results Tree listener:


Also, we can see the result in the Summary Report.


That's it!

SignalFx is built on a massively scalable streaming architecture that applies advanced predictive analytics for real-time problem detection. With its NoSample™ distributed tracing capabilities, SignalFx reliably monitors all transactions across microservices, accurately identifying all anomalies. And through data-science-powered directed troubleshooting SignalFx guides the operator to find the root cause of issues in seconds.
