By default, when test scripts are recorded in JMeter, they contain no pauses between page requests. This is sometimes known as the think time in test scripts. In reality though, most users will frequently pause for a duration of time on every page before moving on to another page in the application. In JMeter, the ways to achieve these pauses are through timers. JMeter comes with a wealth of timers to achieve this purpose.
In this recipe, we will show you how to mimic realistic user behaviors using the JMeter timers.
