Description Milamber 2011-09-21 22:35:05 UTC

Today, I try a load test on a Content Delivery Network (CDN) with HC3.1 vs HC4 with last JMeter trunk (r1173449).

(OpenJDK 6 or Sun JDK 7, GNU/Linux Debian 6.0 64 bits)

My script :
Test only static resources (gif, png, jpeg) with direct HTTP Request
100 users
Ramp up : 100 secs
Duration test : 300 secs (5min)
Each iteration execute 39 HTTP requests
HTTP requests : Keep Alive true

I have this issue (on 8 same tests: 4 HC3.1 and 4 HC4.1) :

With HC3.1 after ramp up period:
 netstat -tplna|grep java|grep ESTA|wc -l

With HC4.1 at beginning and after ramp up :
netstat -tplna| grep java | grep ESTA | wc -l
1145 (value change between ~1000-1150)

I make a tcp dump and analyze with wireshark.
With HC3.1 : 0-42 secs : 43 TCP conversations (inside several HTTP GET and response)
With HC4.1 : 0-44 secs : 3011 TCP conversations (inside one HTTP GET and one response)

HTTP conversations show Keep-Alive header (HC3 and HC4)

I suppose that is a close keep alive connection problem with JMeter.

Simple Test Case

Here a simple test plan.
If you keep only 1 http request per iteration (with hc4) : 100 connections established with netstat (after ramp up)
If you keep 10 http requests per iteration (with hc4) : more 100 connections established (and more CLOSE_WAIT) before end of ramp up period
