11:21<Zurk>anyone know what is about ?
11:21<Zurk>i keep getting people hitting that url on my webserver
11:31<anderiv>Zurk: you mean you're getting that in your referrer log?
11:32[~]anderiv votes that it's just standard referrer spam.

11:53<Zurk>not referrer..theyre hitting
11:53[~]Zurk thinks thats weird

12:01<kvandivo>easier to try than to test
12:01|-|dennisk [] has quit [Quit: ]

15:47<gpd>i know you can do it with windows with things like HiDownload
15:51<gpd> might work

17:30<[|^__^|]>that's like asking to be taken over
17:30<gpd>this is true
17:31<gpd>linbot must be having a valentines day rest
17:34|-|JonR [] has joined #linode
17:53<JonR>suppose I had a webapp. and I wanted to find how many requests per second it could handle on a Linode 80.
17:53<warewolf>adjust your maxclients numbers
17:53<warewolf>see where you get the best performance
17:53<JonR>I wouldn't be using apache.
17:53<warewolf>that's ok
17:54<warewolf>apachebench is a http benchmark app
17:55<warewolf>it was just written by the apache group
17:55<JonR>my main question, though, is: will it still be accurate running the server and the benchmark on the same Linode, or should I have them on different machines, actually going over the network? And if the latter, how do I keep from annoying caker with it?
17:56<warewolf>well it depends on what the webapp is
17:56<warewolf>how much disk IO it requires
17:56<JonR>it uses mysql
17:56<warewolf>that's where you'll have caker breathing down your neck
17:56<warewolf>mysql is a notorious disk and memory hog
17:57<JonR>basically, I want to find out how many requests per second it would take before the Linode is swamped, but I don't want to piss off caker in the process.
17:57<warewolf>oh aslong as your testing isn't non-stop for hours I doubt you can cause significant problems
17:57<warewolf>just do your test, and run top
17:57<warewolf>see if your load average skyrockets
17:57<JonR>unfortunately the Linode isn't something I can easily simulate at home.
17:58<gpd>JonR: you can 'simulate' your linode at home with a linux box running Xen
17:58<warewolf>gpd- not Linode. Linode is still UML
17:58<warewolf>gpd- and Xen is bound to provide better performance
17:58<gpd>yeah - and your home box isn't your linode box
17:58<JonR>and at any rate, I don't have the same CPU/disk setup as the Linode hosts.
17:58<gpd>hence 'simulate'
