During a load test, it is important to know the health of the servers loaded. It is also nice to see if you are targeting a cluster if the load is correctly dispatched. To address this, the plugin package now supports server monitoring! Using it, you can monitor CPU, Memory, Swap, Disks I/O and Networks I/O on almost all platforms!Download Link : http://code.google.com/p/jmeter-plugins/downloads/detail?name=JMeterPlugins-0.4.2.zip
