Project I – Measuring Response Times

  1. Configure your server with two document directories ‘compressed’ and ‘uncompressed’. In each directory place the files “large_image” and “large_text”.
  2. Configure Apache to use HTTP compression when serving files from the ‘uncompressed’ directory but not to use HTTP compression when serving files from the ‘compressed’ directory. Place all configuration directives associated with this project in an “Include” file named “project1.conf”. Do not include any directives that are not directly associated with this project in this file.
  3. Add a custom header to report the response time for Apache when serving these files from both the ‘compressed’ and ‘uncompressed’ directories and record the values. Record at least 3 values from 3 different requests for each file in each directory in order to find an average response time. You will want to clear your cache before each request in order to get a valid response time. Use the browser’s developer tools to view the response times and take a screen shot that shows the response time header value for each file in each directory for a total of 4 screen shots.
  4. Log the compression ratios for both the image file and the text file using the “CustomLog” directive when serving files from the ‘uncompressed’ directory.
  5. Is the response time better when serving files from the ‘compressed’ or the ‘uncompressed’ directory? Is the compression ratio higher when serving image or text files? Explain why your are seeing the results that you see in a brief report. Include the response times and compression ratios in your report.
  6. Submit your config file (project1.conf), screen shots, log file, and report.

Grading Rubric:

Objective Points
