I'm using the Apache 'ab' (Apache Benchmark) tool to profile our Moodle 1.9.x deployment. In order to profile the site properly I would like to look at how pages such as course/view.php, mod/resource/view.php etc. perform under load. Obviously, these pages are behind an authentication boundary and therefore can't be accessed directly. Has anyone successfully used profiling tools like 'ab' or 'siege' to profile pages that are inside Moodles authentication boundary?
