About This Site and Server

This site is a simple Node.js/Express/Handlebars concoction. It examines the creation date of netserver.debug* files from /tmp, then uses the results to populate a Handlebars template. Express provides the backend web routing/handling, and Node.js makes it all go. Original site built in March 2014.

Apache2 is running on port 80, and uses a virtual host for netperf.richb-hanover.com to proxy to the node process that's listening on port 3000.

Many thanks to Raymond Camden for his delightful Introduction to Express tutorial which is the basis of this code. Get the source to this project from Github.com.

The "bench.sh" script gives a measure of the connectivity and horsepower of a Virtual Private Server (VPS). Thanks to freevps.us for the cool script at https://freevps.us/bench.sh (local archive.) To use it, simply copy the date; wget... line below and paste it into a terminal session on your own netperf server. Here are the results from the bench.sh script for netperf.richb-hanover.com:
