python slowdeath.py --threads 200 http://localhost/
The script will open 200 sockets to localhost, and perform a POST request. The connection is kept alive, and will send out small tcp packages in the request body.
If the server is configured for less than 200 clients, the number of connections quickly exhausts, and the server will be unavailable for other users.
