Web Brower Caching and ANTS Load

Web browsers have the ability to perform caching of web page objects. Does ANTS Load perform any caching during a simulation? Or does it retrieve the same page objects over and over again during the simulation?

Thanks.

    Hi Steve,

    That's right. ANTS Load simply retrieves the file from the web server, stores this information in a buffer, then overwrites this on the next request. If you wanted to simulate caching, you'd need to do some clever scripting that will save the response from the web server to a file, and depending on whether or not the file exists, get the file from the server the next time around.
