We then call jmeter. I have put some usage notes in this step and there are a few options to set that are passed down to webPagetest. Ultimately you can set quite a few options at this level so it depends on your project needs how you configure this. For example, I haven�t set how many test runs to average results over, I�ve set a default value for that in the jmeter interaface.
Also, I�m using a separate batch file to call jmeter. This is generally a useful method to use, perhaps to hide ssh login details from the Jenkins logs etc. See below for details.
In this case it�s not really needed but it does allow later flexibility without having to change the Jenkins setup. If your Jenkins is tied down, this can be useful.
