A very important application, which offers access to information on the Internet, is the World Wide Web (WWW or Web). The WWW is primarily responsible for the growth of e-commerce activity by the use of the Internet. To improve users' satisfaction with e-commerce WWW services, a lot of work has been done on characterizing the performance of Internet applications and servers. We discuss in this article about a monitoring application for performance measurement of the WWW Servers. By observing the behaviour of WWW servers and measuring their performance, we can estimate several performance indices. Our application simulates the access of a number of clients to the same Web page and its links and analyses the results. Three different cases are taken into account: the clients access the same Web page one after the other (i.e. serially), at the same time (i.e. in parallel), checking before a ‘cache’ structure.
