Apache Jmeter testing bulk static URLs for status 200 OK.

Hi,

Im having a list of URLs (a few hundreds) in a text file. and they dont follow any kind of pattern.

Now I want to paste all these URLs in apache Jmeter and run a test for asserting resopnse code 200 OK.

How can I do this ?

It looks to me like Jmeter is a stress-testing system, whereas it looks like you're trying to test specific URL's to make sure they're okay.  Are you wanting to test these URL's on a regular basis?  Are they for the same server (or application) or multiple?

Thank you

They are for different servers and different application.

I just want to check if they are alive with 200 OK response.

Are you looking to test them consistently, so you can be alerted when an error occurs?  In that case, I'd suggest a monitoring system like Nagios [http://www.nagios.org/].

It is similar to nagios but i want it as a desktop app / gadget.
Bcause the urls to be verified changes quite often. (Changes everyday)

Hmm. Well, I'm not sure that Jmeter is up to the task... the documentation I've read seems to indicate that it isn't possible (or at least not easy) to specify a large list of URL's.  It may not be super-simple in Nagios (I haven't used it in years), but I think it would probably be a step in the right direction.

Personally, I would probably write my own application for it.  A fairly simple PHP page, backed by a text file or database, could be written pretty quickly to add/edit/delete URLs; one page for administration, one for testing said URLs... then just setup a Nagios instance to check the "testing" page, and look for "FAIL".

Hopefully other experts will be able to chime in with more useful information.
