Benchmarking software developed by Silicon Graphics for measuring the performance of Web servers responding to a variety of client requests (straight HTML, CGI, and proprietary API) and serving a variable number of simulated clients. WebSTONE initiates the client requests and measures throughput, connections per second, average response time, and error rate. It runs entirely on client workstations and can therefore be used to measure the performance of any Web server. (See Web, server, client, CGI, and API in the hard copy dictionary.)
