Interface Filter

All Known Implementing Classes:
LogFilter, SessionFilter

public interface Filter

Description:

Filter interface is designed to make it easier to use Access Logs for JMeter test plans. Normally, a person would have to clean a log file manually and create the JMeter requests. The access log parse utility uses the filter to include/exclude files by either file name or regular expression pattern.

It will also be used by HttpSamplers that use access logs. Using access logs is intended as a way to simulate production traffic. For functional testing, it is better to use the standard functional testing tools in JMeter. Using access logs can also reduce the amount of memory needed to run large test plans.

Method Detail

setReplaceExtension

void setReplaceExtension(String oldextension,
                         String newextension)
Parameters:
oldextension -
newextension -

includeFiles

void includeFiles(String[] filenames)
Include all files in the array.

Parameters:
filenames -

excludeFiles

void excludeFiles(String[] filenames)
Exclude all files in the array

Parameters:
filenames -

includePattern

void includePattern(String[] regexp)
Include any log entry that contains the following regular expression pattern.

Parameters:
regexp -

excludePattern

void excludePattern(String[] regexp)
Exclude any log entry that contains the following regular expression pattern.

Parameters:
regexp -

isFiltered

boolean isFiltered(String path,
                   TestElement sampler)
Log parser will call this method to see if a particular entry should be filtered or not.

Parameters:
path -
Returns:
boolean

filter

String filter(String text)
In case the user wants to replace the file extension, log parsers should call this method. This is useful for regression test plans. If a website is migrating from one platform to another and the file extension changes, the filter provides an easy way to do it without spending a lot of time.

Parameters:
text -
Returns:
String

reset

void reset()
Tell the filter when the parsing has reached the end of the log file and is about to begin again. Gives the filter a chance to adjust it's values, if needed.
