Subject Re: Any other limitations of jmeter? How about scalability?

If you want to record scripts with https, then you might try badboy (I
don't know the url).  I think it is an IE plugin type thing that can
export rudimentary JMeter scripts.

I usually advise people record the scripts with https turned off on the
server, then turn it on for playback.  I think this is more reliable
than using a fake server that records and resends requests.  

IMO, the only good solution would be to embed a browser in JMeter that
allows users to browse normally, and allows JMeter access to the request
details before they are encrypted.  But, I don't know of any
non-commercial java browsers that are anywhere near adequate.

Peter, maybe you should turn jazillian onto gecko :-)
