Many of my JMeter performance tests are against a web application and I make use of the View Results Tree element a lot whenever I encounter a problem and need to debug. The View Results Tree element offers different ways to handle/display/process the response. When I select the 'HTML' or 'HTML Source Formatted' options there is a long delay before the HTML is shown.
The load driver I use is not connected to the Internet so I add a filter to any HTTP calls to only make requests to local servers. That works fine. I am guessing the View Results Tree is trying to access some remote resources, hence the delay. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Does anyone know of a way around this? When clicking through different responses it's torture to have to wait so long to see the rendered HTML.
