Database Test Plan with JMeter


This post explains how to create JMeter Database Test Plan.


JMeter & Java JDK download and setup

Database Test Plan Scenario

You will create 5 users that send (1) SQL requests , (2)times  to the database server. That means 5*1*2  – > totally  10 JDBC request will be send.

  • Add user
  • Add JDBC requests
  • Test Results

1- Add user  

First of all I changed my test plan name as “JDBC Test Plan”. Select Test Plan, clicking your right
button to get the Add menu, and then select Add -> ThreadGroup


Now I need MySQL database  , sample table. Now I ll create “testdb” , “worker” as table.

You can download MySql Community edition from here. Later we created sample database and table.


Some data insert into worker table


Ramp-Up Period, leave the the default value of 0 seconds. This property tells JMeter how long to delay between starting each user. If you set the value to 0, then JMeter will immediately start all of your users.


2- Add JDBC requests

We need to add JDBC Users element. Select Add -> Config Element -> JDBC Connection Configuration.


This example uses the MySQL database driver. Download MySQL Connector jar file from this link .Extract the zip file and copy .jar file to the JMeter lib directory.


Now we can configure JDBC connection:

Database URL: jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/testdb
JDBC Driver class: com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
Username: “your MySQL username”
Password: “your MySQL password”


Select  JDBC Users element Add menu, and then select Add -> Sampler -> JDBC Request



3- Test Results

The final element you need to add to your Test Plan is a Listener. This element is responsible for
storing all of the results of your JDBC requests in a file and presenting a visual model of the
Select the JDBC Users element and add a Graph Results listener (Add -> Listener -> View
Results Tree).
