Subject Testing/Validation
Date Wed, 06 Jan 1999 16:51:48 GMT
Brian,  Thanks for the invite.
The idea is to test and validate the configuration.
This would include feature testing.
Right now I'm looking for any tools that currently exist.
Even generic tools that are not Apache specific.

Hi.  Great to hear that Sequent will be using Apache!
I think the thing to do is go to the Apache developers list
( and announce an interest in working on a test suite.
 As far as I know, there is no proper test suite already in existance,
though I know IBM has offered to help build one.  
There is a very simple benchmarking utility that can be used if you're
mostly just interested in testing performance under load, rather than
feature testing everything.  It's in utils/ab.c
