Listening to web socket messages without sending anything in Gatling 3.0

I have a use case where I just want to listen to web socket messages.
I send messages to the service over HTTP protocol and expect some response over WebSocket.
But I am unable to do this in Gatling v3.0. I can only send messages and expect something. I don’t have anything to send over WebSocket.

Something like this:

scenario(“open websocket and check incoming messages”)
.repeat("${wsMessagesCount}") {


Can someone please help?

It seems like there is no way to listen the WS connection without sending messages to the server as ‘await’ has to be connected with ‘sendText’. I tried to add several checks to the one ‘sentText’ but they all listen the first answer message from the server and the following seems to be received to the /dev/null.
