I create a custom response header called "Duration" that records the time taken to generate the response. And I set this header to be returned only when the request header "Client" with the value of "Get-Duration" is supplied:
% telnet % telnet> o myhost.com ---request 1 GET /index.html HTTP/1.1 Host: myhost.com Client: Get-Duration -----response 1 HTTP/1.1 200 OK ... Duration: D=123123 ...
Using telnet and the "Duration" header above, how to devise and conduct tests to measure the performance of the web server when requesting the files?
Thanks a lot GURUs!!
