Websocket and number of threads

Hi to all,

I just read of Gatling and its capability of testing websockets. My question is very simple. When testing websockets, is a thread allocated on the test machine for each websocket I open or can a thread manage multiple sockets? For example a thread could send a message to socket1 while is expecting response from socket2.

Thank you in advance for your time.


No, Gatling doesn’t create a thread per socket. It uses a NIO event based model.
