weighttp (pronounced weighty) is a lightweight and small benchmarking tool for webservers. It was designed to be very fast and easy to use and only supports a tiny fraction of the HTTP protocol in order to be lean and simple. weighttp supports multithreading to make good use of modern CPUs with multiple cores as well as asynchronous i/o for concurrent requests within a single thread. For event handling, weighty relies on libev which fits the design perfectly, being lightweight and fast itself. Thanks to that, weighty supports all modern high-performance event interfaces like epoll or kqueue, that the major OSs provide.
