[REBOL] Re: client script to measure server performance: ideas ?
From: anton:lexicon at: 6-Jun-2002 5:28
I would recommend your script to launch, eg.
10 new processes, passing them a start time and
a unique id number, one by one.
How to pass the information across? Three ways:
1) save and read a file with the information in it
2) via a server/client exchange on a tcp port
3) write to and read from clipboard://
The launched rebol processes get this information
so they know when to start.
So they all wait for the start time then begin
to make requests together.
After finishing the attack (I mean, test) each
process stores its results in a file with a filename
corresponding to its id.
(ie. results1, results2, ... results10)
The original, mother script examines these files
after an appropriate wait to collate the results.
(Or I suppose you could use clipboard:// again to
get the data serially).
I am almost inspired to do this myself.
Let me know how you go.

That's a good question.
I'd like to find out too.
For connecting to a Rebol/Link server?
Not really sure.
