dkftpbench application is an FTP benchmark program inspired by SPECweb99. The result of the benchmark is a number-of-simultaneous-users rating; after running the benchmark properly, you have a good idea how many simultaneous dialup clients a server can support. The target bandwidth per client is set at 28.8 kilobits/second to model dialup users; this is important for servers on the real Internet, which often serve thousands of clients on only 10 MBits/sec of bandwidth.
The final result of the benchmark is "the number of simultaneous 28.8 kilobits/second dialup users". To estimate this number, the benchmark starts up a new simulated user as soon as the last one has finished connecting. It stops increasing the number of users when one fails to connect, fails to maintain the desired bandwidth, or the limit specified by the -n option is reached. It runs the simulated users until the amount of time specified by the -t option has elapsed since the last simulated user birth or death; the final score is the number of users still alive at the end.
