swamp - SSL/TLS load-tester based on OpenSSL
swamp -connect <address> [options]
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.
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
# 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.

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).
