Subject Re: Extending Jmeter for highly asynchronous protocol
Date Thu, 03 Aug 2006 13:28:44 GMT
JMeter was originally designed for testing HTTP servers. It has since
been expanded to test other request/response servers.

The current samplers are all effectively synchronous.

It is not clear how or whether it could be extended to deal with
asynchronous testing. Sorry I can't be more specific.
