Description

ABOUT SIEGE

Siege is an http load testing and benchmarking utility. It was designed to let web developers measure their code under duress, to see how it will stand up to load on the internet. Siege supports basic authentication, cookies, HTTP and HTTPS protocols. It lets its user hit a web server with a configurable number of simulated web browsers. Those browsers place the server “under siege.”


HOW TO USE

SSH into the server and run the siege command:

### Load Test ###
# 30 concurrent users, with a random delay between requests from 0 to 2 seconds. This delay will average around 1 second
# sends around 30 requests/second for up to 10 minutes. Ctrl+C to stop and see the results.
siege -c30 -d2 -t10M http://example.com/serverid/index.php

### Benchmark ###
# 30 concurrent users for up to 10 minutes. Ctrl+C to stop and see the results.
siege -c30 -t10M http://example.com/serverid/index.php
