Gatling HTTP Connections

Hi Team,

Using Gatling, I need to load test 40K requests/sec with my Server.

I’m concerned to know whether Gatling will create 40K distinct HTTP connections for each 40K requests or would it reuse some of the existing/ongoing HTTP connections in this process?

Why i am concerned on this because, if we are having a set of 100 HTTP connections created which serves the 40K requests then it may not simulate the real world load of 40K/sec on a server

Any help will be appreciated .
