Export JMeter test results to CloudWatch Logs.

Code from the following blog post: https://www.concurrencylabs.com/blog/publish-jmeter-test-results-to-cloudwatch-logs/

This repo contains the following:

  • CloudFormation template for publishing JMeter test results to CloudWatch Logs
  • Sample JMeter test plan to quickly validate that the stack was created properly and JMeter test results are ultimately available as CloudWatch metrics.

jmeter_server.json

This template performs the following tasks:

  • Launches an EC2 instance with JMeter and the Flexible File Writer plugin installed.
  • Installs the CloudWatch Logs agent and it creates metric filters for converting log entries into CloudWatch metrics.
  • The EC2 instance is launched with an EC2 Instance Profile, which gives permissions to the the CloudWatch Logs agent for publishing log data to CLoudWatch Logs.
  • This template also downloads a sample JMeter test plan (included in this repo) that sends HTTP requests to an S3 endpoint. This is only intended for validation purposes.

JMeter is installed in the following directory:

/home/ec2-user/jmeter/apache-jmeter-2.13

The JMeter test plan is downloaded to the following location:

/home/ec2-user/jmeter/test-plans/basicHttpTest.jmx

The CloudWatch Logs agent expects the JMeter test result log in the following location:

/home/ec2-user/jmeter/test-results/results.log

To start the JMeter test just SSH to the EC2 instance launched by this template and execute:

nohup /home/ec2-user/jmeter/apache-jmeter-2.13/bin/jmeter -n -t /home/ec2-user/jmeter/test-plans/basicHttpTest.jmx &

Once you run the JMeter test, you should be able to see test results flowing into CloudWatch Logs almost immediately.

To stop the test, run the following command from the JMeter EC2 instance:

/home/ec2-user/jmeter/apache-jmeter-2.13/bin/shutdown.sh
