|RabbIT proxy for a faster web||
w3c on HTTP
This is only a draftHow fast is RabbIT?
That depends on how you measure fast. Loading times can vary from 20 times as long to 0.2 times...
I do not consider this a good test, but here is a test:doing a "time wget -o ../log -i ../localurls " for my local web site which consists of 182 pages/images from the standard apache/mod-perl/mod-ssl documentation.
These values are based on RabbIT 2.0.14. Performance is increased in later versions.The values are some kind(I decided the "average" value) of approximate average over several runs.
What conclusions can be drawn from this?
It should be clear that you should not use RabbIT if you are surfing on a fast LAN. However if you have a modem RabbIT will make a difference. As can be seen from the above page loading times less than half of the original should not be uncommon.
