What is the metric http_reqs after i run a test?

Is the http_reqs (requests) same as what we see in the Network tab of the browser when we load a site? If yes, then there is difference in the metric generated by K6 to that of browser with huge difference.

Need help differentiating these as i am having a hard time explaining this to my peer.

No that is not what http_reqs represent. Usually when loading a site and watching network tab there will be a number of requests that you won’t be concerned to add them in your tests.

  • http_reqs: Is a counter that represents how many total HTTP requests were generated by k6.
