When you perform any operation on a website or app, they naturally have pauses and delays. These can be simulated with Timers.

JMeter sends requests without applying any delay between each sampler/request. If you perform load/stress testing on your server without any delay, it will be overloaded. This not exactly what you want. You can add a timer element which will permit you to define a period to wait between each request.

Given below is the list of all the Timer elements provided by JMeter:

  • Synchronizing Timer
  • JSR223 Time
  • BeanShell Time
  • Gaussian Random Timer
  • Uniform Random Timer
  • Constant Throughput Timer
  • BSF Time
  • Poisson Random Time
