I am trying the last few days to setup a Jmeter distributed testing
environment using Docker. Indeed after many attempts it worked only
when i added the port at the end of the ip address.
For example at the jmeter client i used something like: jmeter -n -t -D192.168.1.2:5000,192.168.1.3:5000
(+-Jserver.rmi.ssl.disable=true if needed)
Also, yeah as far as i can tell, i think that you have to start the servers first before trying to run the test from client. Personally, i start a jmeter server right after it's container starts.
It seems that is working fine, until the servers try to return their logs to the client.
have 2 servers running. When they finish, first one returns
all his logs to the client, while the second one manages to
return only few and throws multiple exceptions that say "Connection
refused to host (client's ip address)."
