NAME

       swamp - SSL/TLS load-tester based on OpenSSL


SYNOPSIS

       swamp -connect <address> [options]


DESCRIPTION

       swamp is a utility that can be used to test and/or benchmark SSL/TLS
       servers. It is quite configurable and allows for various different
       characteristics of the server’s behaviour to be tested.


OPTIONS

       -connect address
           Configures the address to which swamp should connect for outgoing
           connections, using the syntax defined by the libnal API. For con-
           necting to TCP/IP addresses, the syntax is illustrated below (you
           may use an explicit IP address or a host name);

               # swamp -connect IP:192.168.0.1:443
               # swamp -connect IP:www.localnet:443

           To connect to an SSL/TLS server on a unix domain socket, the syntax
           is;

               # swamp -connect UNIX:/path/to/some/socket

       -h, -help, -?
           Any of these flags will cause swamp to display a brief usage sum-
           mary to the console and exit cleanly. Any other flags are ignored.

AUTHOR

       Swamp was designed and implemented by Geoff Thorpe. Steve Robb has con-
       tributed numerous tweaks and fixes along the way too. To consolidate
       resources and provide an improved framework for ongoing development,
       the swamp utility was made a component of the distcache project in 2003
       (swamp happens to be the ideal tool for testing distcache’s most common
       usage - secure web servers).
