Siege is an http regression testing and benchmarking utility. It was designed
to let web developers measure the performance of their code under duress,
to see how it will stand up to load on the internet. Siege supports basic
authentication, cookies, HTTP and HTTPS protocols. It allows the user to hit
a web server with a configurable number of concurrent simulated users. Those
users place the webserver "under siege."
