Abstract

A hybrid measurement application of the Apache/Linux Measurement Toolkit (ALMT) and the MultiKron_II system performance chip was developed to create a fine-grained, detailed, synchronized measurement method for evaluating web client-server performance. This paper describes the characteristics, abilities, and scalability of the hybrid method. Application of this hybrid method using an Apache server and Netscape client show that it is capable of yielding fine-grained, highly detailed data on client-server interaction and producing easily understandable, intuitive graphic reports. Using this toolkit, users can obtain not only highly confident measurement data but they also have a set of utilities available to help obtain self-explanatory result reports. ALMT and MultiKron_II were developed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and ALMT is available as a free download (http:/dagger.antd.nist.gov).
