Standard WebStone 2.0.1 Run Rules


The following run rules for WebStone 2.0.1 were taken from the README file that comes with the standard WebStone 2.0.1 distribution.

Run Rules

This version also institutes some basic run rules to eliminate the lack of conformity in WebStone performance quotes. To report WebStone numbers, some basic rules should be followed:

  1. The fileset used for the test must be the fileset.standard fileset
    included in the distribution. Tests of CGI performance must be
    with the file filelist.cgi-heavy, and tests of NSAPI performance
    must be carried out with filelist.dynamic-heavy.
  2. The run time should be set for 10 minutes, and the number of
    clients should vary from 20 clients to 100 clients in increments
    of 10. When a connections/second time is quoted, it must include
    information about the number of clients involved.
  3. Any special TCP/IP tuning which the server has recieved should
    be documented, as well as HTTPD server version and configuration
    information such as logging, DNS lookups and number of threads.

Warning

Do not compare WebStone 2.0 results with WebStone 1.0 results. WebStone 2.0 introduces significant changes in testing methodology and reporting.
