CGI Generic Tests Load Estimation (all tests)

info Nessus Plugin ID 33817


Load estimation for web application tests.


This script computes the maximum number of requests that would be done by the generic web tests, depending on miscellaneous options. It does not perform any test by itself.

The results can be used to estimate the duration of these tests, or the complexity of additional manual tests.

Note that the script does not try to compute this duration based on external factors such as the network and web servers loads.
