Delta between Results Tree and Table
I've created a script that when runs reports two different payload sizes. In the Tree Mode the requests shows > 400,000 Bytes and in the Table mode, it shows the size as about 10,000.
What am I missing?
As an add on note, I did hook up wireshark and verified that the entire payload is being returned. Looks like a feature in Jmeter.
There shouldn't be any differences between response sizes.
View Results in Table - reports full size
View Results Tree reports: body size, headers size and full size.
Be aware that as per documentation:
Same applies to the View Results in Table listener, both are very resource intensive and they should be used only for scripts development and/or debugging. When you run the actual load test these listeners (as well as almost any others) need to be removed or disabled.
View Results Tree MUST NOT BE USED during load test as it consumes a lot of resources (memory and CPU). Use it only for either functional testing or during Test Plan debugging and Validation.
