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.
Aranha is an application that uses an XML-RPC layer to retrieve information from one or more servers. The type of information gathered is implemented via plugins, and can be displayed or archived in several different ways. The data is gathered in Round Robin Databases (integrated with rrdtool) and can be accessed using a XUL interface available from the system. Plugins are very easy to write.
BaukBench is a HTTP/1.1 benchmark/stress test tool for measuring performance of Web servers. The advantage of BaukBench compared to other HTTP benchmark tools is that it does not have limitations which produce performance bottlenecks on the client side that make it impossible to measure the server's maximum performance. BaukBench includes support for benchmarking static or dynamic content, an unlimited number of simultaneous HTTP connections, low CPU and memory requirements, detailed statistical data, and many other features.
DJFractal is yet another fractal generator which distributes fractal data to multiple computers. Fractal data are created locally and distributed to other computers that run the appropriate fractal-generation software, which may be hosted on workstations, or on a Java enabled Web-browser through applets, or on a system with JavaCard. DJFractal's unique feature is the "smart" algorithm it uses to compute (and draw) the most interesting part of a fractal first.
