I am carrying out a ab test
ab -n 10000 -c 10 http://www.mysite.com/
this is actually the output
Benchmarking www.mysite.com (be patient) Completed 1000 requests Completed 2000 requests Completed 3000 requests Completed 4000 requests Completed 5000 requests Completed 6000 requests Completed 7000 requests Completed 8000 requests socket: Cannot allocate memory (12)
I have attempted it several occasions it sometimes breaks even earlier. I've a lot of free memory this really is from top while im running ab
Mem: 524288k total, 269968k used, 254320k free, 0k buffers
Can someone explain?
Are you currently running ab on VPS? I believe that's restricted the max socket resource by Web service provider.
