Quickstart tutorial doesn't work


Hi, I’m PoC-ing Gatling to see if we should move from JMeter.

But i can’t get the QuickStart tutorial to generate a report!


  • I followed the QuickStart tutorial using the zip bundle as stated at the top of this post. (Including configuring Firefox proxy)
  • When i run Gatling.bat the simulation starts
  • But - it runs forever it seems

Please see my attached screenshot and outputted scala file



BasicSimulation.scala (1.43 KB)

Oh yeah my Java version:

C:\work\gatling\gatling-charts-highcharts-bundle-2.2.0-SNAPSHOT\bin>java -version
java version “1.8.0_45”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14)
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode)

Hi Colin,

I really appreciate that people give the snapshots a try and report regression, that’s really helpful! Fixing this one.

But then, if you’re evaluating Gatling, it would probably be more safe to stick to stable releases (latest is 2.1.6).


Ha! i literally missed the stable release link nestled above Maven dep etc - thanks i must not be awake this morning.



De rien :slight_smile:

And thanks you for reporting (it’s fixed now)!

Have fun,
