A HTTP benchmarking tool. Runs multiple HTTP fetches in parallel to test the throughput of a web server.

# To emulate 20 requests based on a given URL list file per second for 60 seconds:
http_load -rate <20> -seconds <60> <path/to/urls.txt>

# To emulate 5 concurrent requests based on a given URL list file for 60 seconds:
http_load -parallel <5> -seconds <60> <path/to/urls.txt>

# To emulate 1000 requests at 20 requests per second, based on a given URL list file:
http_load -rate <20> -fetches <1000> <path/to/urls.txt>

# To emulate 1000 requests at 5 concurrent requests at a time, based on a given URL list file:
http_load -parallel <5> -fetches <1000> <path/to/urls.txt>
