    Hello, i wanted to benchmark Apache before and after output buffering and zlib compression (in Tweak settings).

    I found there are tools like this:
    i checked "wrk" isntall here /https://github.com/wg/wrk/wiki/Installing-Wrk-on-Linux, but it says i need to do:
    sudo yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'
    sudo yum install openssl-devel

    which im unsure if its safe to do on WHM?

    Or which apache bench tool i need to use? "ab" i was unsuccessfull to install

    Hello :)

    Please keep in mind that while you may get some feedback from users here, you will likely find more advice for those types of utilities on forums such as WHT or from their developers/official websites.

    Thank you.
