[SOLVED] Jmeter not executing script from command line (CLI mode) but works fine with GUI mode


I wrote a script in Jmeter that is fine being executed from GUI mode but will fail when being executed from CLI mode (non-GUI)

This is the result from CLI mode:

D:\apache-jmeter-5.4.3\apache-jmeter-5.4.3\bin>jmeter -n -t D:\apache-jmeter-5.4.3\apache-jmeter-5.4.3\bin\homepage.jmx
Creating summariser

Tidying up … @ Fri Mar 18 09:41:07 EET 2022 (1647589267321)
… end of run

Why is this happening and how can i fix it ?


You’re just running your test without storing the results and from the output it seems that all your 20 requests have failed.

I would recommend re-running your test providing the path to the .jtl results file as a parameter like:

jmeter -n -t D:\apache-jmeter-5.4.3\apache-jmeter-5.4.3\bin\homepage.jmx -l result.jtl

and then inspect the result.jtl file using Excel or equivalent or generate HTML Reporting Dashboard out of it, you will see at least response code and message.
