Within the loop, include $CONNECT, $WRITE, $READ, and Close(socket). Then submit only 10-20 jobs, but let each job request a web page 500 times or so. I think this will provide more HTTP-CGI specific load testing. As you pointed out, 500 jobs is not load testing the web server - its load testing the entire system. +++ Nathan +++ +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
