This project seeks to provide the research community with more realistic benchmarks by providing real applications with real production workloads. BenchLab provides a framework to replay these workloads using real web browsers that can be deployed anywhere on the Internet. We are exploring the impact of Internet scale workloads on Web Applications including the effects of WAN latencies, load balancers, Content Delivery Networks (CDN), replication and high availability (HA) mechanisms.

BenchLab provides 3 main components:
