Re: HTTPS : SSL persistent Connection


Generally, LoadRunner reuses connections for consecutive requests until they should be closed (by either server or client).

For HTTPS communication it also reuses Global SSL session by defaul.

It may be external reason for connection closing, like proxy or firewall. 

Just as example, for public demo site (page with 180 small images) vuser opens only 6 connections and establishes one global SSL session for the first one and then reuses it for the ather 5 connections.
