Wbox is a command line tool to test HTTP performance of Web servers and Web applications.
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
