What is the difference between a HIT and a CLICK



Your Vote:



Hello! Could you please explain what is the difference between a HIT and a CLICK? I could not understand it completely when reading the manual of WebServer Stress Tool or when consulting the Glossary.

Thank you for your KB-post.

A HIT is a completed HTTP request (for example, request sent to the server and answered completely).

A CLICK refers to a simulated mouse click of a user sending a request to the server and immediately requesting any necessary redirects, frames or images.
