httping : About
httping is a command line tool monitoring the response time of a Web server. It is written in C and published under GPL.
Thierry Uso has ported httping 1.3.2 on OpenVMS. Porting means modifying the source code in order to take account of the OpenVMS specifics, writing a compile/link procedure and creating a PCSI kit.
httping for OpenVMS must be installed on an ODS5 volume. httping has been compiled and tested on Alpha and Itanium with C and TCPIP recent versions.
