Wasp is a distributed heavy load generator in Ruby inspired by beeswithmachineguns(https://github.com/newsapps/beeswithmachineguns).
This is a utility of arming(create and install load program) many wasps (micro EC2 instances) from multiple regions(EC2 zones) to attack (load test) targets(web applications).
$ git clone https://github.com/arkemiq/wasp.git $ cd wasp $ bundle install
Configuring EC2 credentials
Wasps uses aws-sdk gem to communicate with EC2 and supports all the same methods of storing credentials that it does. Set access key and secret key for config/aws.yml to access your EC2 account.
access_key_id: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx secret_access_key: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Usage: To set credentials: $ wasp set [AWS Credential file] To launch 6 wasps: - launch 6 instances in us-east zone with private key named wasps $ wasp up -k wasps -s 6 - launch 5 instances in us-west-2 zone with ami-8cb33ebc AMI, username ubuntu and private key named wasps $ wasp up -k wasps -z us-west-2 -a ami-8cb33ebc -s 5 -l ubuntu To check status: $ wasp status To equip weapon(default: apachebench): $ wasp equip To attack target with 1000 requests and 100 concurrent users per each wasp: $ wasp attack -n 1000 -c 100 -u http://target_site To attack target with incrementally increase wasps from 1 to 10000 during 60 seconds: $ wasp rattack -p 10000:60 -u http://target_site To sleep wasps: $ wasp down To see options: $ wasp help
Note: the default EC2 security group is called 'wasps' and by default it locks out SSH access.
Note: if you didn't specify a zone for EC2 instances, it use default zone 'us-east'.
Please remember to do this--we aren't responsible for your EC2 bills.
Notice! (PLEASE READ)
If you decide to use the Wasps, please keep in mind the following important notice: they are, more-or-less a distributed denial-of-service attack in a fancy package and, therefore, if you point them at any server you don’t own you will behaving unethically, have your Amazon Web Services account locked-out, and be liable in a court of law for any downtime you cause.
You have waspn warned.
