idleconn - tool for opening any number of idle connections
idleconn <server> <port> <numidle>
idleconn is part of httperf suite and is useful to simulate a large number of concurrent
and idle connections. It can establish a set of persistent connections, each of which
generated periodic requests to the server. The effect is that at all times, some of the
connections were active while the rest were idle, and these active and idle connection
sets kept changing with time. (This paragraph was extracted and adapted from the article
"Scalability of Linux Event-Dispatch Mechanisms" (HPL-2000-174), written by Abhishek
Chandra and David Mosberger).
server IP of the server to connect.
port Port used by server.
Number of idle process to be generated.
This is a simple example how to use idleconn:
$ ./idleconn 192.168.1.1 80 100
It would open and maintain 100 idle connections to a web server, listening on port 80,
using the IP address 192.168.1.1.
