==What to send== Well it depends. If you want to test connection speed you don't generally send anything for best results. If you want to test how long X amount of bytes takes then you send an X bytes amount of payload. ==When to send== WebSocket is just a protocol so it depends on the language but when you ping your server, your server should have a response to that and in that response callback, you do the "sending" [Client requests a "ping"] [Server got the "ping" request so it must respond accordingly. Send a "hello" string. Job done close the request] [Client got the "hello" everything is fine. Job done]
