Description Bal 2007-04-23 14:42:19 UTC
It would be nice if I could add to the output of a Summary Report or log the 
current value of a parameter as a column.

When driving JMeter from some external app it would be very good to see the 
values of the parameter it was called with in the logfile - withouth that it 
is difficult to separate them.

On the GUI:
I did some loadtesting and currently the only way I could comfortably do that 
was to create several thread groups with different number of users and the 
same rampup time, specify that one threadgroup must finish before the other 
starts and put a Summary Report page in each threadgroup.
I than copy/pasted the results from each threadgroup to a table and made a 
chart from that.

This would have been much easier if I could just place a Summary Report on the 
test level. The problem is that now it would summarise results from all 
threadgroups. I could of course add the name of the thread group to all labels 
under that group, but that would be too much work.
Instead how nice it would be if I could just say to output the threadgroup 
name as well and so generate a separate summary on that page.

The code in SVN has been updated to allow a list of variables to be specified;
the variables and their values are saved in JTL files. 

See the "sample_variables" entry in jmeter.properties

As to adding the thread group name to the Summary (and Aggregate?) reports, this
sounds like a good idea.

Group name box added to Aggregate and Summary reports.
