The debug sampler generates a sample containing all the values of JMeter variables and/or properties. A View Results Tree listener must be present in the test plan to view its results. This nifty component helps you debug your test plans appropriately, providing you with the tools to analyze the runtime-assigned values of various variables during test execution. In our aforementioned example, suppose we add a Regular Expression Extractor post processor to the
