Subject [users@httpd] How exactly does ab -n works? Please?
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2009 21:47:03 GMT
I read so many man pages but I still don't understand this, the -n flag basically tells it
to make n number of requests. So assuming my server can take 10 request per second, I would
expect ab -100 to take 10 seconds and ab -1000 to take 100 seconds. But that is not the case.
I find that if I do ab -n 10000 everything works fine. But if I do ab -n 30000, the server
also gives a time out. What is the logic here?
