On our side, we use har files, that are generated directly by Chrome. In one har file, we have all the requests/responses to all the servers necessary to load a set of web pages. The web pages themselves come from only one server. We therefore have to do some processing to split the requests/responses according to their target server.

We've not yet implemented any specific filtering on the headers, but should probably do this to remove connection headers for example.

Hervé.
