Build Status Puppet Forge Puppet Forge - downloads

This class installs JMeter from apache.org. If you set the enable_server parameter, a service will be configured and enabled, and JMeter will be started in server mode listening on the default port.

jmeter can optionally install the plugin manager, which allows you to install additional plugins.

The init script is based on the one available at https://gist.github.com/2830209.

Note: If you are using 3.x, you will need to have at least Java 8 installed. If the version is not set, the module will try to choose an appropriate version for you.


This module requires Puppet 4.7.1 or higher, as well as the stdlib and puppet-archive modules. On systems that use systemd, (Ubuntu >= 16.04, CentOS >= 7), camptocamp/systemd is a soft dependency.
