Hi Vadim,
 
Can you explain the difference I'm seeing here?
http://screencast.com/t/eLSP4jYdQO
Is it due to HTTP Host CONNECT requests?
What do those requests actually do?
I'm taking a look at the tests recorded with HTTPS because they have a lot of errors during run, and I would like to understand why. The tests I've recorded without HTTPS ran fine with less than 5 errors for an one-hour run.

Hi Huong,
 
Based on your screenshot, I assume that you selected 826 sessions in Fiddler grid, clicked Set Test Case and received 804 requests in the test case. If this is correct, then your assumption is also correct.  StresStimulus excludes Connect requests from the test case. 

Per W3C’s RFC 2616,  the CONNECT request is used when a proxy establishes SSL tunnel through which HTTPS traffic flows. It is sent between Fiddler and server. 

Let me know if you need me to look into the HTTPS errors in your test case.

Hi Vadim, your assumptions are corect, thank you for the confirmation. So far, I think the errors I'm seeing are due to the web application. I will create a new discussion if I need more help. Thank you!
