ProxySampler. CLI tool for testing & measuring the health of proxy tunnels.

Go Report Card

ProxySampler is a tool for testing proxies and measuring their performance & health.

How can I use this?

Use this tool to check the performance and health of proxy tunnels. Test massive lists or one-off proxies.

PacketStream customers can use this tool as part of their automation tooling to get metrics on which residential proxy sessions/geolocations are performing more reliably and prioritize those sessions.

We use this tool internally at PacketStream as part of our infrastructure monitoring toolset to keep an eye on the the health of our proxy tunnel and trigger alerts if something doesn't seem right.

Installation

Go

go get -u github.com/packetstream/proxysampler

You provide the proxy server, port, and auth information. ProxySampler tests the proxy tunnel(s) and returns information about the response codes and response times.

ProxySampler is straightforward to use and has a few cli arguments for configuration.
