Checked with "ab" with as following (concurrency 700 requests);
ab -n 20000 -c 700 https://9.0.0.10:443/test.html

Here is the piece of output. As per the report test ran for approx. 50 seconds and 20000-14622 = 5278 requests returned with success. This is as expected as per rate limiting at 100r/s for 50 seconds test. Notice that Mean requests processed per second is 396.

Concurrency Level: 700
Time taken for tests: 50.437 seconds
Complete requests: 20000
Failed requests: 14722
Requests per second: 396.53 [#/sec] (mean)

Access log report for this test as per the following command seems to be fine: grep ' 200 ' /path/to/log | awk '{print $4}' | uniq -c

In another test, I ran two instances of "ab" in parallel with same configuration and following is the output.This is again approx. 50 seconds test. By combining both the reports (20000+20000) - (9344+10239) = 20417 requests returned with success. This is four times of expected 5000 requests/sec rate. I would like to understand this behaviour. I guess this is happening in my tests as well. In my case I just keep pushing requests without waiting for response.

First instance:
Concurrency Level: 700
Time taken for tests: 46.944 seconds
Complete requests: 20000
Failed requests: 9344
Requests per second: 426.04 [#/sec] (mean)

Second Instance:
Concurrency Level: 700
Time taken for tests: 53.344 seconds
Complete requests: 20000
Failed requests: 10239
Requests per second: 374.92 [#/sec] (mean)
