Simple web application load testing using ApacheBench

For a quick way to determine how your website/application responds to simultaneous requests, try the ApacheBench application.

ApacheBench can be installed on Ubuntu by installing the apache2-utils package.

sudo apt install apache2-utils

Once the apache-utils package is installed, run the ab command to test your website.

ab -n 100 -c 10 http://example.com

In the above example,

  • -n specifies the number of requests to run
  • -c specifies how many requests to run concurrently
