Please find the latest manual for Webserver Stress Tool here:
Performance tests are used to test each part of the webserver or the web application to discover how best to optimize them for increased web traffic. Most often this is done by testing various implementations of single web pages/scripts to check what version of the code is the fastest.
Webserver Stress Tool supports this type of test with the ability to run several (e.g. 20-100) simultaneous requests on one URL and record the average time to process those requests. By changing your website or application code under repeated tests, you can discover critical issues to address for optimal performance. Usually this type of test is run without requesting page images in order to concentrate the testing on the script and code itself.
