Load testing phoenix channels

I am trying to smoke test my server, trying it out locally first. But I can’t get the test tools connected via the socket.

I’ve tried https://k6.io/docs/examples/websockets and https://github.com/Fitblip/wsstat but they refuse to connect to my local server. I know that the channels work though.

Is there a tool that does work? And how are phoenix channels different from other implementations?

I’d love to know the answer to this too. I’ve been trying to get K6 going for a few hours and keep getting the:

[debug] LiveView session was misconfigured or the user token is outdated.

1) Ensure your session configuration in your endpoint is in a module attribute:

    @session_options [

2) Change the `plug Plug.Session` to use said attribute:

    plug Plug.Session, @session_options

3) Also pass the `@session_options` to your LiveView socket:

    socket "/live", Phoenix.LiveView.Socket,
      websocket: [connect_info: [session: @session_options]]

4) Define the CSRF meta tag inside the `<head>` tag in your layout:

    <%= csrf_meta_tag() %>

5) Pass it forward in your app.js:

    let csrfToken = document.querySelector("meta[name='csrf-token']").getAttribute("content");
    let liveSocket = new LiveSocket("/live", Socket, {params: {_csrf_token: csrfToken}});

But I’m going through the login and sending to csrfToken along with it. Seems to be close but I’m missing something to get it to finalize the handshake.
