Description shmulikk 2011-09-01 12:06:04 UTC
HTTP Cache is working fine for HTTP Request Sampler and for all of the embedded resources.
When enabling concurrent thread pool for "Retrieve all embedded resources" the requests are being sent without the relevant cache headers.

Probably got to do with the cache info being saved on the requesting thread which probably exits after getting all embedded resources (this is occurring also with only one thread in the concurrent thread pool).

This happens with any HttpClient or JAVAImpl.
Comment 1 shmulikk 2011-09-07 12:53:25 UTC
Caused by current implementation of CacheManager, which using ThreadLocal to separate Cache for each thread(virtual user).

This is causing to separate the Cache to each thread in the concurrent pool, thus breaking the cache.

Currently in CacheManager.java:
private transient ThreadLocal<Map<String, CacheEntry>> threadCache;

Suggested solution:
Removing ThreadLocal from the code.
Changing the key to include the url (current key) + ThreadName.

Good catch. Thanks for report.
Fixed with InheritableThreadLocal (concurrent threads pool are chlidren of main http request/virtual user)

Not good. Don't works with several loops (works only on same loop for same embebbed resources)

Need some additionnal works

Oups !!!
Works with loops, I forget to unchecked "Clear cache each iteration?" on HTTP Cache manager on my test plan.

Sorry from SPAM.
