Description:

Not all JMeter features are supported by Cloud Monitor due to the enforcement of security access restrictions to CA internal resources.

Solution:

The following JMeter features are unsupported

  • Debug PostProcessor
  • Any Samplers except the "HTTP Request" Sampler used to monitor a Web site.

The reason for not being able to support those features is mainly security i.e. stop potential access to the CA internal file systems via the triggering of ReadFile requests etc.

A Debug PostProcessor is not allowed due to exposing of the internal jmeter properties on the CM checkpoints.

If a Debug Post Processor or non "HTTP Request" Sampler is used, the Monitor execution will fail with Description: 7018: Only HTTP samplers supported

Any other JMeter feature is supported e.g. Loop Controllers, XPath extractors, Regular expression extractors
