Automating the process of benchmarking a web server

Autobench is a simple Perl script for automating the process of benchmarking a web server or for conducting a comparative test of two different web servers. The script is a wrapper around httperf. Autobench runs httperf a number of times against each host, increasing the number of requested connections per second on each iteration, and extracts the significant data from the httperf output, delivering a CSV or TSV format file which can be imported directly into a spreadsheet for analysis/graphing.
