I've created a Thread Group to test my server load. In the following picture you can see that throughput is about 27 per min. The site is a high traffic website. Is jmeter precise on showing this data? How much we can trust it?

Consider the beneficial effects of proper cache management and a request which is avoided to the server because the request is either satisfied at the CDN layer or at the local client cache.

What I meant by the question is that website itself works fast enough, but jmeter shows a very low number! – Alireza Hos Apr 23 '14 at 15:55
requests/sec are a function of the number of requests made. If you have a high amount of client-side cached items that are requested once per session (or less frequently) then the number of actual requests can be quite low - which is preferred. – James Pulley Apr 23 '14 at 22:23
