+ <longdescription lang="en">Httperf is a tool for measuring web server
+ performance. It provides a flexible facility for generating various HTTP
+ workloads and for measuring server performance. The focus of httperf is
+ not on implementing one particular benchmark but on providing a robust,
+ high-performance tool that facilitates the construction of both micro-
+ and macro-level benchmarks. The three distinguishing characteristics of
+ httperf are its robustness, which includes the ability to generate and
+ sustain server overload, support for the HTTP/1.1 and SSL protocols, and
+ its extensibility to new workload generators and performance
+ measurements.</longdescription>
