Web socket support in gatling

Good afternoon,

My current project uses web sockets interactions a lot.

Is it possible to use gatling to do load testing through web sockets ? If not, is it planned in a closed future ? Or can I add it via a plugin mechanism (I know that Netty supports web sockets) ?

Thank you.

Hi Raphaël !

I’m sorry, but there’s no native support for websocket in Gatling.

We have not planned to add it yet, but you can easily create your own protocol implementation if want/can :wink:

A page in the wiki is dedicated to adding other protocol support in Gatling, if something is not enough documented, feel free to ask! https://github.com/excilys/gatling/wiki/Protocol-support
