Benchmarking Caching Proxies
- Web Polygraph
is a freely available benchmarking tool for Web caching
proxies. Polygraph distribution includes high-performance
Web client and server simulators. Polygraph is capable of
modeling a variety of workloads for micro- and macro-benchmarking.
Poly has been used to test and tune most leading caching
proxies and is the benchmark used for TMF cache-offs.
- The TMF Cache-off
tests Web caching products at the same time and
location, using Web Polygraph.
- Falling Rain offers access to their URL List.
It is a database with millions of ``fresh, diverse, robot-approved,
ip-resolved URLs suitable for verification and testing of

Blast is a tool by Jens-S. Vöckler and the TF-CACHE
project. It reads a trace file of URLs and then submits them to
a proxy cache via a number of child processes.
plays back http accesses read from a log file. It maintains
a configureable number of parallel requests, and keeps them
busy continuously. Right now it only supports the GET
command. Webjamma was originaly written to torture-test a
http proxy server. It was then extended to send the requests
to multiple servers at once, and used to compare the behavior
of the multiple servers under the same network load and
is a suite of applications and C++ classes that can be used
in simulating and/or driving web proxies. Proxycizer can
automatically recognize several types of proxy traces,
currently including Harvest, Squid, DEC, UCB, CRISP, Crispy
Squid, and some other Proxycizer-specific formats.
is a tool for measuring web server performance. It provides a
flexible facility for generating various HTTP workloads and for
measuring server performance. The focus of httperf is not on
implementing one particular benchmark but on providing a robust,
high-performance tool that facilitates the construction of both
micro- and macro-level benchmarks.
develops custom load testing, stress testing, and performance
modeling solutions for dynamic web application servers.
