The Eggplant Network Recorder is an alternate way to create a web recording. It analyzes the traffic passing through a network card in order to detect HTTP requests from your computer to the system under test (SUT).
The Eggplant Network Recorder cannot be used to record HTTPS traffic.
In addition to the Eggplant Performance web recording, it can produce an Ethernet text recording that also decodes TCP/IP and other recognized protocols. It can also record non-HTTP traffic that may be concurrent with the web traffic.
