Load is a utility for Web application and SOAP-based Web services performance and scalability testing. It features a scripting language and a library of test objects for the creation of intelligent agents that drive the Web application or SOAP-based Web service. Running hundreds of agents concurrently shows how your software performs in production environments. Load is a Java application that runs on Linux, Solaris, NT, Win2000, and Macintosh. While Load continues to be maintained, the next generation is the TestMaker program.
Aphid (the Apache/Perl HTTP Installation Daemon) provides a quick facility for compiling and installing the Apache Web server with support for SSL via mod_ssl, and with the embedded Perl interpreter provided by mod_perl. It downloads, compiles, and installs the software into the directory of your choice. Aphid places emphasis on providing an intuitive, browser-based interface and keeping a tiny distribution footprint. To date Aphid has been tested on Rehat Linux 6 and 6.2, FreeBSD 4.0, and Solaris 2.6 and 7.
sh-httpd is a shell script-based Web server that supports GET and HEAD methods, and a CGI 1.1 interface. It's not real fast, and it's probably not real secure, but it is really small. The Web server and it's configuration files are around 9,000 bytes total, and that's with comments and pretty whitespace. If you can run ash or bash, an inetd, and about 7 standard external commands on your system, you can have a Web server with CGI support. There's also a timeout counter that kills never-ending CGI programs, cleans up, and exits.
