Subject Flood output
Date Thu, 06 Jan 2005 14:34:55 GMT

I just discovered flood, and I'm interested in writing my own report  
based on the raw output.  The only documentation I can find is here: 

Last updated on April 15, 2004, where it says at the very end:

     <!-- This section needs to be written. Volunteers? [jacekp] -->
         <title>Analyzing Flood output</title>
         <para>No information available at this time.</para>

I've done a bit of reverse engineering with the  
"examples/analyze-relative" script and believe that the columns  
represent the following:

1  ???
2  connect
3  write
4  read
5  close
6  response
7  ???
8  URL

As you can see, I can't figure out the 1st and 7th columns.  I would  
love it if someone could help me out on this.  I'm working on a Perl  
version of the "analyze-relative" script so I can expand what it does.

Perhaps a question I should get answered before all of the above is  
whether flood is still being developed, if it is reliable/doing what I  
think, etc.?  Should I be using flood or can someone point me to a  
better program for stress-testing a web server with a bunch of URLs.
