Let us say that we need to test a HTTPS web site for vulnerability/response in case of DOS/DDOS attacks.
Among other tools, we can use GoldenEye for this purpose. We can vary the number of workers and agents, thus varying the scale of attack.
How do you propose we measure the site response with the varying degree of attack?
One way for this could be to open the site in a browser and observe the site response when reloaded. However, this is not very satisfying, since this will be solely based on user perception.
Is there any way we can quantify the site response.
The site in question is remotely located and not physically accessible.
