WBox 4

Wbox is a command line tool to test HTTP performance of Web servers and Web applications.
Wbox is a command line tool to test HTTP performance of Web servers and Web applications, to test HTTP compression, to perform stress tests simulating multiple HTTP clients, and to test virtual domain configurations before DNS propagation. The project also implements a configuration-free Web server for file sharing.

Here are some key features of "WBox":

· Benchmarking how much time it takes to generate content for your web application.
· Web server and web application stressing.
· Testing virtual domains configuration without the need to alter your local resolver.
· Check if your redirects are working correctly emitting the right HTTP code.
· Test if the HTTP compression is working and if it is actually serving pages faster.
· Use it as a configuration-less HTTP server to share files! (see the server mode documentation at the end of the Wbox tutorial in this page, but it's as simple as % wbox servermode webroot /tmp)

What's New in This Release:

· option "maxclients" to set max number of concurrent clients in server mode
· option "close" to close the connection after the few block of data was
· receivedThis is useful to check what happens on EOF from client conditions
· in web applications, to test the latency aspect against big pages, and so on
· min/avg/max time statistics on Ctrl+C or termination
· "Index of ..." no longer expose the real directory path on the filesystem
· source code cleanup
· Many fixes, including no more defunct processes in server mode
