Description Sebb 2016-05-04 18:15:53 UTC
Further to Bug 59152, I think it would be useful to log a message if an error occurs and any samplers are skipped as a result. 

Even if a user has deliberately selected anything other than Continue, it can be confusing if there is no indication why some samples were not run.

This should probably be an INFO message; or possibly WARN. Not sure about that.

INFO level is better, because this can happen during a load test and it would flood log file.

@Sebb, do you intend to fix it this evening ?

Thanks

@sebb, a message is already logged at debug level:

 log.debug("StartNextLoop option is on, Last sample failed, starting next loop");

See:
https://github.com/apache/jmeter/blob/trunk/src/core/org/apache/jmeter/threads/JMeterThread.java#L254

Thinking further about it, switching it to info could introduce performance regressions for test plans that have this option on (and aware of its consequence) knowing that jmeter default log level is INFO.

If performance is an issue, then the log could be done once only
