Overview

Polling is a mechanism used by the Push technology whereby a request is sent by the client to the server at regular intervals. In return, the server updates the status of connected client. Between two polling requests, the server stores the updates sent to the client in its memory until the next polling request is received.

NeoLoad uses a special request to represent a polling request in User Paths.

NeoLoad handles long polling in the same way as polling.
