I am not interested when Fedora is doing right.

All "Phoronix Test Suite"[1] tests run in *local* host. NO net.

Basically the "apache" test do:
download http://archive.apache.org/dist/httpd/httpd-2.2.11.tar.gz
and http://www.phoronix-test-suite.com/benchmark-files/apache-ab-test-files-1.tar.gz

then compile apache ; exec it and run ab:
$ ab -n 500000 -c 100 http://localhost:8088/test.html

get more info doing "find . | grep apache" inside phoronix-test-suite dir

To clone Phoronix apache test:

$ wget http://www.phoronix.net/downloads/phoronix-test-suite/releases/development/phoronix-test-suite-2.0.0a3.tar.gz
$ tar xvf phoronix-test-suite-2.0.0a3.tar.gz
$ cd phoronix-test-suite
$ ./phoronix-test-suite install apache
$ ./phoronix-test-suite run apache
