CouchDB Http Requests Test

The HTTP Provider Service represents a server socket that listens for client HTTP connections. It takes care of parsing the URL of the incoming HTTP requests, dispatching them to the correct module for processing, and returning the generated responses back to the client. The CouchDB HTTP Requests test monitors how well the HTTP Provider Service responds to the HTTP connection requests received from clients.
