LoadWorm v.1.02


LoadWorm is a Perl tool to load a website with requests, and to record the resultant performance, from a web client's perspective. It can also be used for various investigative purposes, such as validation of the website, or discovering all the referrers to a page, etc.It consists of two main parts -* LoadWorm - traverses a website, pushing all the buttons, and entering data according to specific input instructions. It will ignore specified URL's, limit the number of times a single page is visited, and limit the depth of the entire search. The amount of processing required to perform all these tricks makes it too slow to act directly as a web-loading tool, so the LoadMaster/Slave was invented to handle that job.* LoadMaster/Slave - Takes a list of URL's (such as that produced by the LoadWorm), and directs several "slaves", usually on seperate host computers, to make hits on these URL's at a tunable rate. The "slaves" collect data on the response times (and successes/fails), which can be harvested and analyzed by the LoadMaster.The LoadWorm's operation is controlled by a configuration file. The LoadMaster/Slave reads the same configuration file for some of it's configurables (proxy, verbosity, etc), but is controlled mainly through a Tk based GUI.The LoadWorm and LoadMaster/Slave works on Windows NT and Unix (tested on Solaris and Linux), or any combination of these systems.
