To run a JMeter Test Plan in command line mode, you need to:

1. Make sure you have "View Result in Table" listener included in the test plan to generate result.

2. Run JMeter using the following command:

>\fyicenter\jmeter\bin\jmeter -n -t test-plan.jmx -l test-result.csv

For example:

>\fyicenter\jmeter\bin\jmeter -n -t Facebook-Login-Test-7.jmx -l Test-Result.csv

Creating summariser
Created the tree successfully using Facebook-Login-Test-7.jmx
Waiting for possible Shutdown/StopTestNow/Heapdump message on port 4445

summary =  4 in 00:00:22 =  0.2/s Avg:  5422 Min:  3966 Max:  7299 Err:  1 (25.00%)
... end of run

The summary line tells us that:

  • There are 4 samplers in this test.
  • Average sampler execution time is 5.422 seconds.
  • 1 out of 4 (25%) samplers failed.

If you open Test-Result.csv in Excel, you will see more information about each sampler execution:
