  Description     : Perl API for Apache benchmarking and regression testing

HTTPD::Bench::ApacheBench sends sequences of HTTP requests to an HTTP
server and keeps  track of the time taken to receive a response, the data
that was returned, the size of the data that was returned, and various
other bits of information.

Since it is implemented in C, it sends HTTP requests in a tight loop which
can stress your server to 100% capacity, especially if invoked in multiple
concurrent instances. It gives accurate time measurements down to the
millisecond for each HTTP request-response interval.

Included is a simplified re-implementation of ab using the ApacheBench/Perl
API. This should help get you started with ApacheBench.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.

Generated with the help of dpt-gen-itp(1) from pkg-perl-tools.
