[httperf] httperf.parse_status_line: invalid status line '<html>' !!

Hi ReDo

It appears as though the Web server is not responding in the appropriate manner.

Please invoke httperf with the options: --print-request=header and --print-reply=header (in addition to any other options that you are already using). The former will print out the "headers" sent to the server, while the latter will print out the "headers" received from the server. The first line received from the server must be the status line, e.g., "HTTP/1.1 200 OK". Based on the information in your message, it seems like the server is not returning a properly formatted status line. If you capture the entire output from httperf including the request and reply headers, you should be able to see what the problem is.

Subject: [httperf] httperf.parse_status_line: invalid status line '<html>' !!

Hi everybody,

I try to benchmark several servers (2x Node.js, 3x Apache, 1x Nginx) by using the tool autobench.
Everytime Node.js or Nginx servers are tested it prints out the following error:

httperf.parse_status_line: invalid status line '<html>' !!

All servers are simple fileserver, all with the same OS configuration.
Google doesn't help...

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
