Subject Re: [Bug 55512] Summariser should be enabled by default
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 09:15:35 GMT
1) why not, good idea, but only if we don't enable 2)
2) My proposal is just to make the default enable it instead of not, with
jmeter properties.

Take a non gui load test, how to check overall state of your test?
- You can grep on csv but it's more linux and it's external tool
- summariser is good for this
now say you're a beginner in jmeter, do you find it a good thing that when
using non gui mode nothing is shown by default ?
I don't.

I remember when I started with it, I found  the tip on summariser only
weeks after using it on milamber blog :)
Now about performance, it only does easy sums inside synched block, and the
output which will be the most consuming happens every 10 seconds if we
configure it like this.
And you still have the option to disable it.
