Apache Hello World Benchmarks

Apache Hello World Benchmarks is a benchmarking tool that seeks to give a sense of Web application execution speed on various software platforms running under the Apache Web server. Benchmarks can vary greatly from system to system, so this tool allows one to get numbers on one's own platform. Applications tested include mod_perl, mod_php, Tomcat, and Apache::ASP, with over 62 benchmarks in all.
