Issue/Introduction

 

We want to configure connection keep alive with jmeter scripts that are used to execute in blazemeter however we do not find the option. 

Can you please let us know how to enable this?

 

Cause

 

Currently not supported.

Environment

 

BLAZEMETER PERFORMANCE TESTING SAAS

Resolution

currently, JMeter has a limitation where it does not support keep alive:


Can you refer to the JMeter documentation on what is supported
https://jmeter.apache.org/usermanual/index.html

From the documentation:
JMeter sets the Connection: keep-alive header. This does not work properly with the default HTTP implementation, as connection re-use is not under user-control. 

Because of this JMeter limitation, Blazemeter also does not currently support it.
