# Test Description

  • ngx_waf v5.1.1.
  • Approximately 210,000 IPV4 whitelist rules were used.
  • About 210,000 IPV4 blacklist rules were used.
  • Approximately 48,000 IPV6 whitelist rules were used.
  • Approximately 48,000 IPV6 blacklist rules were used.
  • 100,000 URL blacklist rules used, obtained by random string generator.
  • 100,000 URL whitelist rules were used, obtained by a random string generator.
  • Uses 5000 random strings, obtained by a random string generator. One of them is randomly selected as the URI for each request to send a GET request.
  • The test lasts 30 minutes.
  • Tested twice, once with the firewall on and once with the firewall off.

NOTE

The IP for testing is obtained from IPdney (opens new window).

Configuration used for testing.

master_process on;

http {
    server {
        listen 80;
        server_name  localhost;

# Test Command

wrk -c 100 -d 30m -t 1 -s test/wrk/rand.lua --latency http://localhost/ -- /path/to/rand-str.txt

# Test Results

With the firewall on, QPS(Queries Per Second) is reduced by about 4%.

# waf on;
wrk -c 100 -d 30m -t 1 -s ngx_waf/test/wrk/rand.lua --timeout 1m --latency http://localhost/ -- /usr/local/src/ngx_waf/txt.txt

# Test By Yourself

You can use wrk (opens new window) to perform performance tests on this module.

This project provides wrk's lua script for testing. The path of the script is test/wrk/rand.lua and its function is to send GET requests using a random URI. You need to provide it with a text file containing a certain number of random strings, one random string per line. Then test it with the following command.

wrk -c 100 -d 1m -t 1 -s test/wrk/rand.lua --latency http://localhost/ -- /path/to/rand-str.txt
