You can add several Response Assertions to the HTTP request to very if you are getting the home page HTTP response data correctly or not as shown in this tutorial.

1. Start JMeter on your computer and open "\fyicenter\Facebook-Login-Test.jmx".

2. Add another HTTP Request sampler call "GET SSL Home Page" under the "Login Test Case" with these settings:

Name: GET SSL Home Page
Server Name: www.facebook.com
Protocol: https

3. Right-click on the "GET SSL Home Page" HTTP Request sampler, and select "Add > Assertion > Response Assertion". You see the "Response Assertion" settings screen.

4. Modify the following settings:

Name: Status Code 200
Apply to: Main sample and sub-samples
Field to Test: Response Code
Pattern Matching Rules: Matches
Patterns to Test: 200

5. Add another "Response Assertion" with the following settings:

Name: Has Login URL
Apply to: Main sample and sub-samples
Field to Test: Text Response
Pattern Matching Rules: Contains
Patterns to Test: <a href="/login/" title="Log into Facebook">Log In</a>

6. Add a child "View Result Tree" listener to "GET SSL Home Page".

7. Click "File > Save Test Plan As" menu and save it as "\fyicenter\Facebook-Login-Test-2.jmx".

8. Click "Run > Start" menu to run the test.

9. Click "View Result Tree" in the left panel to open it. You see the "GET SSL Home Page" test sampler executed successfully. We can assume that it returned the status code 200 and the response contains the login hyper link.
