Simple forking web benchmark
webbench is very simple HTTP benchmarking tool, which can benchmark both WWW and proxy servers. webbench uses fork for simulating multiple clients and supports benchmarking by HTTP/0.9-HTTP/1.1 requests without Keep-Alive. This benchmark is not very realistic, but can test if your HTTPD can really handle many clients at once try to run some CGIs without taking your machine down. I am using this program for setting maximum number of Apaches. Webbench displays results in pages/min and bytes/sec.
