I am experiencing some issues with regards to Redirector and external Apache HTTP Client connector. The issue is that Reverse proxy implemented using Redirector will die after some time. I was trying to find a reason for this odd behaviour but with no luck.
I am able to reproduce the issue by using JMeter and attached JMeter test plan. When running a test and stopping it few times manually, the Reverse proxy will die. This is the case only when Apache HTTP Client connector is used.
I prepared SSCCEE project which is composed of back-end mock server (running on port 9999) and reverse proxy (running on port 8080) and JMeter test plan (ReverseProxyIsueSSCCEE.rar).
Steps to reproduce the issue (will take no more then 3 minutes):
- Run attached project: mvn clean install exec:java (server on port 9999 and reverse proxy on port 8080 will be started - please note that logging is turned off for performance reasons).
- Open up JMeter and load attached test plan.
- Run & stop test plan few times consecutively.
- Reverse proxy will eventually die (backend-server on port 9999 should still be alive).
Any explanation of what is causing this is more then welcome.
P.S.: If you need any additional informations please let me know.
