In this tutorial, you will learn to use the Jmeter’s listeners for viewing the results of the request.
Below are some of the listeners covered in this section:
- View Results in Table
- View Results Tree
- Aggregate Report
- Aggregate Graph

Table Results shows result in table format with latency, response time, connect time as important parameters. The response can be seen in text, HTML, JSON, XML by viewing the results in Tree Format.
