Guest bsenftner Posted March 9, 2012 Report Share Posted March 9, 2012 hello fellow Uniform Server enthusiasts, My client wants to know how many concurrent connections the system I am building for them can handle. So I looked up and read about using Apache Bench (ab.exe) here: http://www.petefreitag.com/item/689.cfmTrying this simple yahoo.com example:ab.exe -n 100 -c 10 http://www.yahoo.com/I am getting this error:bind: An Address incompatible with the requested protocol was used. (730047)Trying other domains like google makes no difference, same error. Using google to see how others have resolved this, I find posts recommending the use of the "-B" (bind to address) option. When I looked up the documentation for Apache Bench, the "-B" option is not listed, so it looks like we are getting an older version of ab.exe than what is on the official Apache Bench online documentation. Revealing my utter ignorance in this area, the usage help from ab.exe says that -B is:-B address Address to bind to when making outgoing connectionsWhat address are they talking about? Is than an IP Address, a memory address, a port or what? (FWIW, I'm a neural net developer creating a web service for access to my neural nets. Other than installing and using WAMP/MAMP/LAMP stacks, I know very little about them.) Any examples, solutions, hints or places to learn how to get around this issue will be greatly appreciated. (For reference, I've attached the help page generated by our copy of ab.exe to this post.)ab_help.txt Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
