Does Gatling do any Warm Up?

Hi, do Gatling (the open source version) does any small warm up of sorts before starting the execution?

I’ve been trying to “count” how many requests are hitting our Front Door (to find out from where things like j.n.c.ClosedChannelException are coming) and from the 300 requests, Front Door registers 302 usually, and the bigger the number the bigger is the “extra” requests. eg from 360000 requests Front Door have 360969. The execution is at 00:00 so I don’t believe anyone else is using the services.

So I was just wondering if there are some extra requests done that do not end on the final report?


Just 1 request: Gatling - HTTP Protocol and by default, not against your target app.

I would recommend 2 things:

  1. upgrade to the latest version of Gatling (3.7.6 as of now)
  2. provide a way for us to investigate, see How to create a Minimal, Reproducible Example - Help Center - Stack Overflow
