Is there a linux tool that acts like
ab but for CLI, not HTTP.
I want the one that can accept CLI command, number of runs, number of simultaneuously run instances and gives some stats as a result.
Regards, zerkms There are many performance tools available, but many of them are for one application or one user-case scenario. For example:
Network Performance tools: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/bandwidth-monitoring-tools-for-linux.html
TSung: is a open-source multi-protocol distributed load testing tool. It can be used for Benchmarking and stress tests for several services including Apache, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Jabber/XMPP servers, etc.
Now for the Command Line, on Solaris and Linux, there are four tools that are the key rocks of many sysadmins:
iostat: reports on the CLI the I/O statistics and the CPU utilization
netstat: reports all network statistics
vmstat: reports the memory utilization on the system
sar: provides a combined view of all these statistics.
I recommend to you should read the man´s pages of these tools to learn to use them. Thanks a lot for reading and I hope that this information will be useful to you.
