http_load - multiprocessing http test client
version of 12mar2006
http_load runs multiple http fetches in parallel, to test the
throughput of a web server. However unlike most such test clients,
it runs in a single process, so it doesn't bog down the client
machine. It can be configured to do https fetches as well.
See the manual entry for more details.
Files in this distribution:
Makefile guess
http_load.c source file
http_load.1 manual entry
timers.c timers package
timers.h headers for timers package
make_test_files simple script to create a set of test files
To build: If you're on a SysV-like machine (which includes old Linux systems
but not new Linux systems), edit the Makefile and uncomment the SYSV_LIBS
line. If you're doing SSL, uncomment those lines too. Otherwise, just do
a make.
Feedback is welcome - send bug reports, enhancements, checks, money
orders, etc. to the addresses below.
