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.
