Project Title: HTTP Bomber


HTTP Bomber is a software tool that tests and analyses performance of HTTP servers (web servers). HTTP Bomber tests performance of a chosen server according to a user-defined workload, gathers statistical information regarding the server's responses, and displays some of that information using dynamic charts. HTTP mode of work is as follows: First, the user defines the workload on which the server will be tested. This is done by creating a list of HTTP GET and POST requests, as well as defining additional workload parameters. After workload is defined, simulation is run. During the simulation ("Bombing"), a user-defined number of virtual users (threads) send requests to the server. At the same time, information regarding the server's response is gathered, analyzed and graphically displayed (real-time). From the gathered information and clear graphical display, one can learn about the server's behavior and performance.
