Building h2load on Cygwin.

   Actually, Cygwin has libev and nghttp2 packages now. So, you can use h2load feature even if you don’t build nghttp2 by yourself. Nevertheless, if you build nghttp2 on Cygwin, you need to build the Jansson and the spdylay before building it because Cygwin doesn’t have their packages. But, according to the current trend, I think you don’t need the spdylay package. (2016.6.18)
   Now, I have two zip files. One is, another is If you download one of them, you can do the test by h2load on your Windows PC. Run cmd.exe and do like this.
> h2load -n100000 -c100 -m10 https://localhost
   If you do this test, you should create your own local server. Because the test might be a cyber attack for the server if you set numbers too high as values of -n -c -m. Be careful.
   I wrote like this before:‘I don’t know why, but it looks like telling Apache without HTTP/2 is faster. Gee!’. This time, I had interesting results. See HTTPS with HTTP/2 and HTTPS without HTTP/2. The test tells that the server supports HTTP/2 is good at dealing with concurrent streams than the server doesn’t support HTTP/2. This is one of HTTP/2 features.

   I’ll write about my hard work to get these files (^_^;).
