Hey all, if I may comment on this -- if the information in an access
log is sufficient for the needs of a test, then the Access Log Sampler
is a great deal easier to use.

The record/replay scenario is indicated for a test that depends on any of:

- - contents of request bodies, such as POST data
- - contents of request headers that aren't available from access logs
- - reproducing the concurrency of the recorded traffic

For that, you need logs of the full contents of requests, either
recorded or synthetic. And you're right, that's quite a bit different
from just dropping in an access log.

So the Replay Sampler certainly wouldn't be used by everyone -- you'd
have to be willing and able to do the preparations, for a test that
needs it. Whether that's of sufficient interest for the JMeter
distribution is a judgment call, but you're welcome to it (since a
number of JMeter components are fairly specialized, it didn't seem out
of the question). I'll be continuing to maintain it, and would do so
in the context of the project.


Best,
Geoff
