Mastering JMeter Csv Data Set Config

You're probably asking several legitimate questions:

  • How can I simulate concurrent users with unique logins using JMeter ?
  • How can I split JMeter CSV Data Set over multiple load generators in case of Remote Testing?
  • Is there a solution to Randomize the content of the CSV before a test run?

Let me tell you a secret: you'll get all the answers below.

You will learn how to swarm your system with dynamically behaving users thanks to JMeter CSV Data Set Config.

Ready to make a leap forward in your JMeter skills? Let's get to the business.

JMeter response assertion

When running a protocol based load test with JMeter, it is always a challenge to make sure the server responses are correct. The default validation is only done on HTTP response codes based on their value:

OK < 400 <= KO

And since 4XX and 5XX HTTP response codes are error messages it makes sense. But it's easy to understand why this is not enough.

Multiple User Login Using JMeter


You want to simulate a realistic load test where every user is having a unique user session. You application may only accept one user login per account at a time. You want each concurrent user to pick a different login password.

It's way more realistic to simulate concurrent users using unique logins and passwords because it's closer to the real world load. It's a good practice to avoid using a single user login and password for all concurrent users. Typically, web servers create web sessions per account. Using a single account for multiple users can mess up things on server side pretty quickly.


JMeter provides a facility to manage login and password: CSV Dataset Config. By defining a CSV file containing all the login and password couples, JMeter can pick a line from the file on each user iteration and assign them into variables.
