hurl: HTTP Server Load Test in C++

What are they

A few utilities for testing and curling from http servers.

hurl HTTP Server Load Tester

hurl is an http server load tester similar to ab/siege/weighttp/wrk with support for tls, http2, multithreading, parallelism, url ranges. hurl is primarily useful for benchmarking http server applications.

  • A little more about URLs Ranges: hurl has support for range expansion in urls which is useful for testing a server's capability to serve from many files. hurl will expand the ranges specified in the wildcards and perform requests in user configurable orders (see the "--mode" option in help). eg: "http://127.0.0.1:8089/[1-100]/my_[1-9]_file.html".

An example

>hurl "https://google.com" --calls=100 -p100 -f1000
Running 1 threads 100 parallel connections per thread with 100 requests per connection

phurl Parallel Curl

phurl is a parallel curling utility useful for pulling a single url from many different hosts. phurl supports reading line delimited hosts from stdin, a shell command string, or a file.

An example

>printf "www.google.com\nwww.yahoo.com\nwww.reddit.com\n" | phurl -p2 -t3 -u"https://bloop.com/" -s -T5 -o output.json
