Viewing the results from the virtual machines

To view the results, we need to grab the files off each host machine and then concatenate them together to form a composite whole. We can then view the final merged file using a JMeter GUI client. To grab the files, we can use any SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) tool of our choice. If you are on a Unix-flavored machine, chances are that you already have the scp command-line utility handy; that's what we will be using here. To proceed, we will need the name of the host machine that we are trying to connect to. To get this, type the exit command on the console of the first virtual machine.

You will see a line similar to the following:

ubuntu@ip-10-190-237-149:~$ exit logout Connection to ec2-23-23-1-249.compute-1.amazonaws.com ...
