Apache HTTP Server

This is a test of the Apache HTTPD web server. This Apache HTTPD web server benchmark test profile makes use of the wrk program for facilitating the HTTP requests over a fixed period time with a configurable number of concurrent clients.

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

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Apache HTTP Server 2.4.56

Concurrent Requests: 1000

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 1,211 public results since 25 March 2023 with the latest data as of 10 June 2024.

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.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

Yes, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
