           Summary: ab doesn't consider varying length documents
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.0.58
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: support
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: adpeac@gmail.com


Apache HTTP server benchmarking tool needs to have an option to ignore varying
length documents. This could be a flat ignore option, or threshold valued argument.

Why? In CGI environments the document length isn't necessarily sable.

On the first iteration of a bench test, ab saves the length of the document in a
variable called doclen. It then uses this as a comparison of what subsequent
document lengths should be. Therefore, if the page being tested isn't stable in
document length, the tool reports massive amounts of `Failed requests` due to
`Length`. 

This makes the tool useless for sites that don't have documents of stable length.
