    <para>
      <command>tsung</command> is a distributed load testing
      tool. It is protocol-independent and can currently be used to
      stress and benchmark HTTP, WebDAV, LDAP, PostgreSQL, MySQL and Jabber/XMPP servers.</para>

    <para> It simulates user behaviour using an XML description file,
    reports many measurements in real time (statistics can be
    customized with transactions, and graphics generated using
    gnuplot). </para>

    <para>For HTTP, it supports 1.0 and 1.1, has a proxy mode to
    record sessions, supports GET and POST methods, Cookies, and Basic
    WWW-authentication. It also has support for SSL. </para>

    <para>
      Several config examples can be found in
      <filename>/usr/share/doc/tsung/examples/</filename>.
