Recently i installed a website that had too many requests and it was too slow. Many improvements have been made to the web site code and we've also bought a new server.
I want to test the new server with exactly the same requests that made the old server slow. After that, i will double the requests, make new tests and so on.
These requests are logged in the apache log files. So, I can parse those files and make some kind of script to make the same requests. Of course, in this case, the requests will be made only by my computer against the server, but hey, better than nothing.
Questions: - is there some app that does this already? - would you use wget? ab? python script?
