Description Philippe Mouawad 2015-02-26 21:54:54 UTC
It would be useful to be able through this feature to:
- Make a load test last a bit longer saying (add 1h)
- Increase/Decrease load (add 100 Threads to Thread Group X)
- Pause/Resume rampup (BUG 53317 feature request)

A shell like stopTest.sh with command line options would be a good way to use it.

It's already possible to use the BeanShell server to change properties.

See for example:

Hi sebb,
But this is not enough , It only allows to change properties dynamically no ?
It would not work
1/ to dynamically add threads no ?
2/ Nor for pausing/resuming ?
3/ Nor for making test last longer ?

Or if it does, it is not clear how.
