What's New in JMeter 3.2?

The Apache JMeter™ team released JMeter 3.2 on April 14. The major release of JMeter 3.0 was in May, JMeter was upgraded to 3.1 in November, and now we’re seeing new features and improvements that improve your load testing and analysis abilities.


What do you need to know about JMeter v. 3.2? Read this blog post to find out.


JMeter 3.2 is Here


Updated to Java 8


Make sure you have Java 8, because that is the version JMeter requires now.


Static Host Resolution


Now enabled through the DNS Cache Manager. Static hosting enables easier machine operating, without the obstacles of running a DNS server. This means you can override hosts and choose your own.

Reconnection on Error with Pause


Previously, JMeter didn’t enable forcing reconnection after certain error codes. In version 3.2 this is enabled. Jmeter 3.2 also adds a pause between errors, to avoid UI freeze.


InfluxDB Interface


JMeter’s backend listener now interfaces with InfluxDB, an open-source time series database. The implementation enables analyzing and viewing graphs on InfluxDB, by using its HTTP API. The data is sent through Asynchronous HTTP calls. This is useful for enriching your analytics.
