Why is it recommended to run JMeter in GUI mode?

JMeter tests can be run both GUI as well as Non-GUI Mode.

It is highly recommended to run the load test in Non-GUI mode because AWT Event Thread can kill the tests in case of high load scenarios.

There are various Non-GUI mode supported with Jmeter such as:

  • Command Line
  • ANT Plugin
  • MAVEN Plugin
  • Jenkins
