Siege is an regression test and benchmark utility. It can stress test a single
URL with a user defined number of simulated users, or it can read many URLs
into memory and stress them simultaneously. The program reports the total
number of hits recorded, bytes transferred, response time, concurrency, and
return status. Siege supports HTTP/1.0 and 1.1 protocols, the GET and POST
directives, cookies, transaction logging, and basic authentication. Its
features are configurable on a per user basis.
Note: this package contains siege with HTTPS support turned on, thus it
obsoletes siege-ssl package now.
