azathoth - HTTP benchmark and load generator tool
azathoth.js <options> http://example.com:8080/
azathoth is for generating lots of HTTP traffic. By utilizing Node.js's
powerful asynchronous abilities it's possible to create an enormous number
*Note*: azathoth is a very small and very simple proof of concept. Anyone
interested in using node for this kind of work should use
http://github.com/benschmaus/nodeload which adds a lot of value and
functionality on this idea.
Outside the ordered universe that amorphous blight of nethermost confusion
which blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity; the boundless
daemon sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud, and who gnaws
hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst
the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine
of accursed flutes. The Dream Quest -- H. P. Lovecraft
-c Number of concurrent connections to use. Each client will make a
number of requests equal to the total number of requests divided by this number.
-n Total number of requests to make.
-m HTTP method to use (default: GET)
azathoth requires node to be installed somewhere on your path.
