Description Alf Hogemark 2007-06-30 02:56:03 UTC
Some errors that happen during the execution of a test, only shows up as "ERROR" lines in the jmeter log file. So these errors go unattended by a lot of users, I think. I suggest to add a short text, displaying the number of errors logged in the jmeter log file, if possible in only the number of errors in the current test exectuion. Currently, in the upper right corner, there is a text showing the number of threads running. This seems to be kind of a "status" line. Perhaps we could add a text there, stating : "Number of errors logged : 3, number of threads running 5/10". This would make it quite easy to see if anything unexpected has happened in the test execution. I am not sure if we should look at the jmeter log file, or if we should set up our own log listener, which only receives "ERRORS" for all classes. I guess it would be best to set up our own log listener, because some users might set the jmeter properties so that nothing is logged. It would also be nice to have an action or menu item to show the error log, either the jmeter log file, like the bugzilla 41788 talks about, or just the errors our own log listener has received. I think this functionality would be very useful. If someone has better suggestions on where to display the information, that is fine. But I think it should always be displayed, so that even novice users will be able to notice it without having to set something up first.

Sounds like a good idea, but would need to be carefully implemented to avoid causing too much overhead. [The existing counts only need updating for every thread event; to maintain an error count could at worst require per-sample updates]. I'm not convinced that a count is needed, but it would certainly be useful to know if any errors had occurred.

Added option to control wether this counter is displayed or not: jmeter.errorscounter.display=true I checked performance, it seems OK, but if you find it's not, then we can switch option to false by default.
