Load testing a web server on Windows using the ApacheBench benchmark tool from Apache

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/08

Based on:

  1. Download the most recent x64 Apache binaries for Windows from [WayBackApache VC15 binaries and modules download (at the time of writing: https://www.apachelounge.com/download/VC15/binaries/httpd-2.4.34-win64-VC15.zip )
  2. Extract recursively to D:\bin
  3. Run the UltrawareController locally
  4. Run D:\bin\httpd-2.4.34-win64-VC15\Apache24\bin\ab.exe -n 1000 -c 10 http://localhost:8000/foo

This will run the ab Apache benchmark tool with 1000 connections using 10 threads all doing the same http GET request at http://localhost:8000/foo

If you want to test TLS (https) connections, then you need to use the abs tool in the same directory as the ab tool supports http-only (when you still try, you get the message SSL not compiled in; no https support as explained in [WayBack] Add https support to Apache Bench on Windows – Stack Overflow).

Download location via [WayBack] windows – Is there any link to download ab Apache benchmark – Stack Overflow:

There are many more command-line parameters documented at [WayBack] ab – Apache HTTP server benchmarking tool – Apache HTTP Server Version 2.4, this is the summary:
