Small Static File Benchmark
This benchmark compares the speed at which different web servers deliver small static files using both non-keep-alive and keep-alive connections both on regular HTTP and HTTPS.
- The static file was 4.0K in size. We used such a small file to avoid saturating the network connection.
- The test was performed over a 10GBps network connection to make sure network bandwidth did not become a bottleneck.
- The benchmark simulated serving 10000 requests to 10 and 100 users.
