Below is a snippet that allows you to test, for example, that the webserver actually returns a 404 not found. It can be useful to look for specific status codes that you want in replies.
You can apply this to various use cases such as expecting a specific 4xx or 2xx reply from certain content types. If the response below was not a 404 you would see an error reported in your LoadForge report.
import time from locust import HttpUser, task, between class QuickstartUser(HttpUser): wait_time = between(3, 5) @task(1) def index_page(self): self.client.get("/") with self.client.get("/does_not_exist/", catch_response=True) as response: if response.status_code == 404: response.success()
