Description jon.valliere 2016-03-03 19:54:20 UTC
Field names such as "content-length" are not processed by ab unless they are "Content-Length"

Every other benchmarking tool correctly implements this.
Comment 1 jon.valliere 2016-03-03 19:57:51 UTC
Works correctly in: curl, wget, wrk, fiddler, etc; ab is the only tool which does not properly parse the header fields.
