ab -n overflows
Last modified: 2014-04-29 05:27:17 EDT
Description of problem:
# ab -t 7200 -n 50000000 -c 500 http://z215.z900.redhat.com/error/noindex.html
On a s390x machine, caused ab Segmentation fault.
With -n 5000000 (reduced a zero), it worked fine. I suspect it had been overflowed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It's a signed 32-bit integer, yup, that's an overflow.
