This is a test of ab, which is the Apache benchmark program. This test profile measures how many requests per second a given system can sustain when carrying out 700,000 requests with 100 requests being carried out concurrently.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark apache.

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 6,576 public results since 7 February 2018 with the latest data as of 18 January 2021.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
