Using Gatling for non-HTTP Load Testing

We’ve used Gatling to a small extent for it’s normal use case. That is, we’ve written some load tests for some web applications and it works great.

We now have a case where we have a .jar file that already exists that makes out calls to some other systems. We’d like to ramp up a scenario where all it does is make calls to the .jar file and makes no HTTP requests. Are there any examples of some simple scenarios that can still ramp up threads and get all of the nice graphical results but don’t actually have to submit any HTTP requests? Just a link to an example or two would be amazing. Thanks!

Hi Jake,

We haven’t documented this, even if there was indeed a tentative in Gatling 1:

Did you start digging into Gatling’s code? JMS support would probably more simple to understand than HTTP.
