ApacheBench

The Apache HTTP server benchmarking tool ("ab") may be the most commonly known benchmarking tool.

Example:

URL=http://localhost:8080/test.php

# Number of requests
for n in 500 1000 5000; do
   # Number of concurrent connections
   for c in 10 100; do
      # Use HTTP KeepAlive feature?
      for k in 0 1; do
         [ $k = 1 ] && k="-k" || k=""
         ab -n $n -c $c $k -e ab_n"$n"-c"$c"$k.csv -g ab_n"$n"-c"$c"$k.dat "$URL" > ab_n"$n"-c"$c"$k.txt
      done
   done
done

http_load

http_load hasn't been updated since 03/2006, so it's kinda dated. Here's how to run it:

wget http://acme.com/software/http_load/http_load-12mar2006.tar.gz
tar -xzf http_load-12mar2006.tar.gz
cd http_load-12mar2006

You may want to apply the following patch, so that 1) http_load will be compiled with OpenSSL support and 2) install to /opt/http_load:

$ diff -u Makefile.orig Makefile

 CFLAGS =       -O $(SRANDOM_DEFS) $(SSL_DEFS) $(SSL_INC)
 #CFLAGS =      -g $(SRANDOM_DEFS) $(SSL_DEFS) $(SSL_INC)

Now we can build & install it:

sudo mkdir -p /opt/http_load/bin /opt/http_load/man
sudo make install
