Oracle Application Testing Suite - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



OpenScript Version: Build 262

With 'Enable Keep Alive' checked, certain steps execution takes more than 5 minutes

OpenScript >  View > OpenScript Preferences > Playback > HTTP > option "Enable Keep-Alive" checked



When "Enable Keep-Alive" is selected, the Connection: Keep-Alive header is set to indicate requests should use a persistent connection.
The "Keep-Alive" keyword indicates that the request should keep the connection open for multiple requests.
- For HTTP/1.0, the socket connection is kept open until either the client or the server drops the connection.
- For HTTP/1.1 all connections are kept alive unless a Connection: close header is specified.

UN-ticking this preference box a new connection is opened for every single request/response pair.
Potential impacts: performance or congestion on the web server, but depends on the server resources.
