Apache HTTP server benchmarking tool. More information:

  • Execute 100 HTTP GET requests to a given URL:

ab -n 100 {{url}}

  • Execute 100 HTTP GET requests, in concurrent batches of 10, to a URL:

ab -n 100 -c 10 {{url}}

  • Execute 100 HTTP POST requests to a URL, using a JSON payload from a file:

ab -n 100 -T {{application/json}} -p {{path/to/file.json}} {{url}}

  • Use HTTP [k]eep-Alive, i.e. perform multiple requests within one HTTP session:

ab -k {{url}}

  • Set the maximum number of seconds ([t]imeout) to spend for benchmarking (30 by default):

ab -t {{60}} {{url}}

  • Write the results to a CSV file:

ab -e {{path/to/file.csv}}
