Protocols

suggest edits

Out of the box k6 comes with support for the following protocols:

k6 will use HTTP/1.1 by default when it contacts a server. If, after connection, the server reports to k6 that it supports HTTP/2, k6 will upgrade the connection to HTTP/2 instead. This is all automatic - both the use of HTTP/1.1 initially and the potential protocol upgrade, and you don't have to do anything special when using k6 to enable either HTTP/1.1 or HTTP/2. You might want to verify which protocol is actually being used for a transaction though, which requires an extra step.

WebSockets is a little bit different, the structure of the test and the VU lifecycle is different.

k6 v0.29.0 introduced xk6 allowing the community to build k6 extensions and therefore add support for additional protocols.

k6 community contributed extensions for SQL, Kafka, ZeroMQ, Redis, and other protocols. Full list can be found on GitHub.
