"""CherryPy Benchmark Tool

        benchmark.py --null --notests --help --modpython --ab=path --apache=path
    --null:        use a null Request object (to bench the HTTP server only)
    --notests:     start the server but don't run the tests; this allows
                   you to check the tested pages with a browser
    --help:        show this help message
    --modpython:   start up apache on 8080 (with a custom modpython
                   config) and run the tests
    --ab=path:     Use the ab script/executable at 'path' (see below)
    --apache=path: Use the apache script/exe at 'path' (see below)
    To run the benchmarks, the Apache Benchmark tool "ab" must either be on
    your system path, or specified via the --ab=path option.
    To run the modpython tests, the "apache" executable or script must be
    on your system path, or provided via the --apache=path option. On some
    platforms, "apache" may be called "apachectl" or "apache2ctl"--create
    a symlink to them if needed.
