Hi Akhila

Use --method=POST to issue a post instead of a get (get is the default).

Subject: [httperf] webserver POST

  i am trying to run httperf for an application webcal
its login page is like


my command line for this is

  (httperf --server machinename.ac.in --uri

this is not executing the page and login is not happening. (looking at
logged queries)

I felt may be one of the reason
after looking at apache log ->>
GET /webcal/login.php?user=admin&password=admin HTTP/1.1" 200 16182 "-"
"httperf/0.9.0" "-" "-"

this command is issuing a GET request on the webserver.
May be this will get solved by making httperf POST a request.

I do not know how to do it. I would be of big help if somebody can help
thanks and regards,
