JMeter does not interpret meta http-equiv="refresh" meaning we have a discrepancy in response times

Nicola Hayward
We have recently moved from LoadRunner to JMeter.

On one of our scripts we have noticed that There is a 4 second delay (before refresh) that is incorporated in the code.
LoadRunner picks this up and is able to handle the meta http-equiv="refresh" (hence this is why we see a representative response time). Whereas JMeter, does not interpret meta http-equiv="refresh"

Why does JMeter ignore the refresh and is there a way we can get JMeter to interpret it.

Thank you

The main reason is JMeter is not a browser(http://jmeter.apache.org/) so it
does not understand HTML specific stuff.
 Hence such things need to be explicitly coded into your script
