Hi, We are in process of assessing HTTP/2 protocol for our Web applications as there are lot of benefits it provides over HTTP/1.1 at least theoretically. With given settings in tomcat, we are able to switch to HTTP/2 without trouble. For us next step is to see what benefits do we get over HTTP/1.1. Certain tools we generally used for web application load testing for e.g. jmeter. But, looks like most of the tools are not yet fully compliant with HTTP/2.
As I am subscribed to tomcat-dev group, I can see Tomcat team is putting lot of efforts on HTTP/2 support. Now we would like to know, Does tomcat dev team perform any assessment associated with these protocols ? Are there any existing utility within tomcat to see any benefits ? Any stats available in tomcat ? Any third party tool to assess performance of HTTP/2 over HTTP/1.1 ? Generally, for what kind of application you would suggest HTTP/2 over HTTP/1.1 ? This information will really help us to take decision to move to HTTP/2 with more confidence. Thanks, Kedar
