Subject [users@httpd] flood and other testing utilities
Date Tue, 17 Dec 2002 16:32:44 GMT
Hello, All!

I'm trying to use Apache flood as a performance testing tool for
timestamp server (implemented as apache module and functioning
over HTTP). This implementation requires sending a binary data.
There is a parameter in flood config file - payload, but when I try to
convert my binary request into string representation (like "&#45;&#01;
&#00;" etc), it's XML parser refuses to parse symbols with the codes
that are less than 32. Moreover, if I find a way to fix the parser (I can't
so far), there is still a problem that internally it stores payload as char*,
and uses char string functions (psprintf etc.) for manipulations, and this
fact forbids using &#00; character anyway.

Maybe I'm missing some important point, so can anyone see the possibility
to change flood so that it could support any data? Or where can I find
tool with such capability?

P.S.: Is this a right place to ask such questions? I couldn't find dedicated
flood mailing list :(

Best regards, Victor V. Snezhko.
