开源性能测试工具 – Apache ab 介绍

简介

ab的全称是ApacheBench,是 Apache 附带的一个小工具,专门用于 HTTP Server 的benchmark testing,可以同时模拟多个并发请求。前段时间看到公司的开发人员也在用它作一些测试,看起来也不错,很简单,也很容易使用,所以今天花一点时间看了一下。

通过下面的一个简单的例子和注释,相信大家可以更容易理解这个工具的使用。

一个简单的例子

/*在这个例子的一开始,我执行了这样一个命令 ab -n 10 -c 10 http://www.google.com/这个命令的意思是启动 ab ,向 www.google.com 发送10个请求(-n 10) ,并每次发送10个请求(-c 10)——也就是说一次都发过去了。跟着下面的是 ab 输出的测试报告,红色部分是我添加的注释。*/

\Apache2.2\bin>ab -n 10 -c 10 http://www.google.com/

This is ApacheBench, Version 2.0.40-dev <$Revision: 1.146 $> apache-2.0

更多信息

ab 不像 LR 那么强大,但是它足够轻便,如果只是在开发过程中想检查一下某个模块的响应情况,或者做一些场景比较简单的测试,ab 还是一个不错的选择——至少不用花费很多时间去学习 LR 那些复杂的功能,就更别说那 License 的价格了。

下面是 ab 的详细参数解释,大家有兴趣的可以研究一下,最近没有足够多的时间研究,如果哪位朋友有兴趣希望可以帮忙翻译一下每个参数的含义,有问题讨论也欢迎在这里回帖 ^_^

ab [ –A auth-username:password ] [ –c concurrency ] [ –C cookie-name=value ] [ –d ] [ –e csv-file ] [ –g gnuplot-file ] [ –h ] [ –H custom-header ] [ –i ] [ –k ] [ –n requests ] [ –p POST-file ] [ –P proxy-auth-username:password ] [ –q ] [ –s ] [ –S ] [ –t timelimit ] [ –T content-type ] [ –v verbosity] [ –V ] [ –w ] [ –x <table>-attributes ] [ –X proxy[:port] ] [ –y <tr>-attributes ] [ –z <td>-attributes ] [http://]hostname[:port]/path

-A auth-username:password

Supply BASIC Authentication credentials to the server. The username and password are separated by a single : and sent on the wire base64 encoded. The string is sent regardless of whether the server needs it (i.e., has sent an 401 authentication needed).

-c concurrency

Number of multiple requests to perform at a time. Default is one request at a time.

-C cookie-name=value

Add a Cookie: line to the request. The argument is typically in the form of a name=value pair. This field is repeatable.

-d

Do not display the “percentage served within XX [ms] table”. (legacy support).

-e csv-file

Write a Comma separated value (CSV) file which contains for each percentage (from 1% to 100%) the time (in milliseconds) it took to serve that percentage of the requests. This is usually more useful than the ‘gnuplot’ file; as the results are already ‘binned’.

-g gnuplot-file

Write all measured values out as a ‘gnuplot’ or TSV (Tab separate values) file. This file can easily be imported into packages like Gnuplot, IDL, Mathematica, Igor or even Excel. The labels are on the first line of the file.

-h

Display usage information.

-H custom-header

Append extra headers to the request. The argument is typically in the form of a valid header line, containing a colon-separated field-value pair (i.e., “Accept-Encoding: zip/zop;8bit”).

-i

Do HEAD requests instead of GET.

-k

Enable the HTTP KeepAlive feature, i.e., perform multiple requests within one HTTP session. Default is no KeepAlive.

-n requests

Number of requests to perform for the benchmarking session. The default is to just perform a single request which usually leads to non-representative benchmarking results.

-p POST-file

File containing data to POST.

-P proxy-auth-username:password

Supply BASIC Authentication credentials to a proxy en-route. The username and password are separated by a single : and sent on the wire base64 encoded. The string is sent regardless of whether the proxy needs it (i.e., has sent an 407 proxy authentication needed).

-q

When processing more than 150 requests, ab outputs a progress count on stderr every 10% or 100 requests or so. The -q flag will suppress these messages.

-s

When compiled in (ab -h will show you) use the SSL protected https rather than the http protocol. This feature is experimental and very rudimentary. You probably do not want to use it.

-S

Do not display the median and standard deviation values, nor display the warning/error messages when the average and median are more than one or two times the standard deviation apart. And default to the min/avg/max values. (legacy support).

-t timelimit

Maximum number of seconds to spend for benchmarking. This implies a -n 50000 internally. Use this to benchmark the server within a fixed total amount of time. Per default there is no timelimit.

-T content-type

Content-type header to use for POST data.

-v verbosity

Set verbosity level – 4 and above prints information on headers, 3 and above prints response codes (404, 200, etc.), 2 and above prints warnings and info.

-V

Display version number and exit.

-w

Print out results in HTML tables. Default table is two columns wide, with a white background.

-x <table>-attributes

String to use as attributes for <table>. Attributes are inserted <table here >.

-X proxy[:port]

Use a proxy server for the requests.

-y <tr>-attributes

String to use as attributes for <tr>.

-z <td>-attributes

String to use as attributes for <td>.
