How to save the log file in the same folder as jmx file

Hi All,

I’ve been struggling today to save Aggregate Graph’s log file in the same directory as the project file.
Finally after 2h of crawling thru google I’ve sorted that out by myself.

All you need to do is to use such a simple and obvious thing like tilde “~” and put it before your desired log file name 🙂

~/jmeter-results-${__time(YMDHMS)}.csv

this is how you can save your log file in jmx's home directory

this is how you can save your log file in jmx’s home directory

Hope you’ll find it helpful.

How to install Groovy on Ubuntu, Linux Mint and other similar distros

A short tutorial how to install Groovy on Ubuntu, Linux Mint and other similar distros.

Download lastest Groovy build @ http://groovy.codehaus.org/Download and upack it

First create a groovy folder in /usr/lib

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/groovy

Then move the unpacked groovy folder to it

sudo mv groovy-1.8.6/ /usr/lib/groovy/

Our next step is to use update-alternatives to add a group of alternatives to the system

sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/groovy" "groovy" "/usr/lib/groovy/groovy-1.8.6/bin/groovy" 1
sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/groovyc" "groovyc" "/usr/lib/groovy/groovy-1.8.6/bin/groovyc" 1
sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/groovyConsole" "groovyConsole" "/usr/lib/groovy/groovy-1.8.6/bin/groovyConsole" 1
sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/groovysh" "groovysh" "/usr/lib/groovy/groovy-1.8.6/bin/groovysh" 1
sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java2groovy" "java2groovy" "/usr/lib/groovy/groovy-1.8.6/bin/java2groovy" 1

Then to check if everything is fine:

sudo update-alternatives --config groovy

and finally

groovy -v

should give you:

Groovy Version: 1.8.6 JVM: 1.6.0_27 Vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc. OS: Linux

Lastly try groovyConsole for evaluating your Groovy script:

groovyConsole

ps. I used this tutorial how to install oracle java 7 as a basis for this one 🙂

Ta-dah! you’re done 🙂
