ApacheBench with Homestead

Bruno Skvorc has a new post detailing how to stress-test your PHP app with ApacheBench on Homestead.

ApacheBench (also known as “ab”, the command you run it with) is a tool designed to nuke an endpoint with requests and load-test web servers. It supports a wide array of parameters and options you can tweak to simulate different loads, like number of requests, number of concurrent requests, extra headers, falsified cookies, and more.
