apache ab?

Does anybody know where the Apache benchmark program ‘ab’ is for
opensuse? I don’t find it installed or in the standard repositories.

sudo zypper in apache2-utils

the name of the program itself is ab2 (instead of ab).

Thanks for that. Any idea why opensuse has a different name for it?

Only a guess. Maybe it was renamed not to conflict with the old apache
program. Same reason why apache is apache2.
