Same problem @acmzero, it is just hangs doing nothing. No idea how to fix it.

@acmzero: thank you, much appreciated. i can confirm this issue and will look into it. nevertheless, i never use this tool and am short on time until next week minimum, so if you (or anyone else) happen to find a solution before me, please share.

EDIT: first investigation shows, that this breakage occurs in earlier versions (2.4.{23,20}) as well, 2.4.18 wont build with (and without) openssl1.1-patch. so a deeper look into that patch (taken from extra/apache) could be helpful, even though it does not work on plain http either. nevertheless i am in no means qualified to do that. we'll look for help in other places then…

I was trying to do a benchmark to a local web app I have. I installed this package (apache-tools) and when trying the benchmark it is just hangs doing nothing.

I posted the video because is self explanatory. The ab command is not throwing any error or anything just hangs.

This is the version that I have installed at the moment.
apache-tools 2.4.25-2

@acmzero: wtf, cant you give explanations like normal people? do a strace and a gdb run with it and report proper problems. and not some spurious link to a video…

Apache bench is not working.
See this video.

@mitchhentges: thank you. I applied the openssl patch from extra/apache, whose version is slightly off. still works for me. please check if it works for you as well.

It's failing to build due to openssl, probably:

ab.c:(.text.startup+0x904): undefined reference to `SSLv2_client_method'
ab.c:(.text.startup+0xa22): undefined reference to `CRYPTO_malloc_init'

I have both openssl 1.1.0 and 1.0.1:

% pacman -Q | grep openssl
openssl 1.1.0.e-1
openssl-1.0 1.0.2.k-3

hi, armv7h could also be added (for e.g. the raspberry pi 2)

fordprefect commented on 2015-10-02 11:36

@pozar: thank you. i added support for armv6h, but omitted pkgrel bump to avoid rebuilds everywhere

You can consider adding 'armv6h' into supported architecture list - I can confirm its working well.

Best Regards,
