Using JMeter 2.3.2 with iframes

We have an application where much of the content runs within an iframe on the main site page. I've been trying to figure out how to load test the iframe itself but I don't see how this could be done. There doesn't seem to be any special sampler for it. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I found this and A snippet on another site
* In order for JMeter to download IFRAMEs automatically, you must
change to use the RegexpHTMLParser instead of the
default parser. You can comment the default parser and uncomment
the RegexpHTMLParser. See the example Affects all platforms.

Thanks for the reference. I'm trying to figure out the significance of RegexpHTMLParser, but the wiki doesn't even mention it. It also mentioned writing a sampler for this, so I think I'll check that out.

I agree. Here's the link:
