Tip #8: How to save test results

There is a possibility to save JMeter test results to xml or csv file for further work (e.g. generating reports, importing to a database, etc.). It can be easy done by adding Simple Data Writer listener to a Thread Group and specifiing the filename. Of course you can specify the filename as JMeter variable or property.

You can choose the format of results file (xml or csv) and the fields to be saved clicking on Configure button and checking necessary options. As for me I prefer xml format and default options except Save URL which is useful when I need to know exact URLs of HTTP requests.
