Subject [Bug 62262] New: Drop "Use Keep-Alive" option altogether
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2018 12:21:44 GMT

            Bug ID: 62262
           Summary: Drop "Use Keep-Alive" option altogether
           Product: JMeter
           Version: 4.0
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTTP
  Target Milestone: ---

JMeter 4.0 sports HttpClient 4.5.x and Java URLConnection by default. Both use
HTTP/1.1 only, one cannot control this in JMeter anyway (for the good). Having
the option "Use Keep-Alive" makes no sense. HTTP/1.1 is persistent by default.
Infact, "Connection: Keep-Alive" is an invalid header field for HTTP/1.1.
Closing is a performance penalty for client and server which is the default in
a new test plan.

I see no benefit to have this option around at all anymore. For those who want
to fiddle with connections can use a header manager for "Connection: close". 

The enhancement request to remove this altogether from GUI and code.
