<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>.
