          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:

    README              this
    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.
