What tools and methods can be used to stress test a Linux-based router/proxy? On the router Squid, Apache Modproxy and Privoxy are installed. The purpose of the stress test is to determine which proxy is best in terms of load. There are three machines, a client, the router, and a server.
The tool must be able to log a performance period so the results can be graphed next to each other, preferably using
gnuplot or Excel.
