F5 BIG IP - ajax POST with HTTP response truncated

Hi,

Jmeter 2.12.

I used a scenario fully functional in front of a reverse proxy Apache. Recently we 've replaced the reverse proxy with the F5 BIGIP technology and now my scenario hangs.

The problem is for a particular ajax POST request the HTTP response is truncated : i receive a 200 OK but the HTML content is not full (no html tags for example). When i post the same request with Firefox the full content is ok.
Note that i don't receive the http header Transfer-Encoding: chunked.

In this case what can be the difference between Firefox and JMETER ?
Anyone have an idea on how could i get the full html response ?

Thanks for any reply.

Browsers don't do any magic, they just send HTTP requests and render responses. JMeter can mimic any HTTP request using the HTTP Request Sampler and some configuration elements like HTTP Header Manager, HTTP Cookie Manager, etc.  See How To Make JMeter Behave More Like A Real Browser article for more information on JMeter configuration.

The same HTTP requests should have the same HTTP Responses, no matter of origin, most likely there is a mismatch between requests which are being sent by Firefox and JMeter, just compare them and fix your JMeter script.
