Best practices in JMeter

We need to follow best practices in JMeter before running our performance test suite. Performance testing is a must-do task for the application development or infrastructure benchmark. In order to achieve the best results take care below best practices

1. Master-slave setup of load test should use to get better and realistic results. Use cloud servers such AWS geo located servers are the best choice to measure the realistic performance data

2. Always use non-GUI mode to run the test suite and it reduces the useage of system resources.

3. Reduce the usage of listener and assertion modules, always check JMeter logs files to verify the results 
4. Limit the number of threads 

5. Maintain proper system resources for the performance test machine 

6. Clean the temporary files before execution.

7. Always implement realistic load conditions and repeat the test multiple times
