Python Apache-Like Benchmark Tool

palb is a HTTP benchmark tool. The command line interface resembles the Apache benchmark tool ab. It lacks the advanced features of ab, but it supports multiple URLs (from arguments, files, stdin, and Python code). palb uses pycurl for high-performance URL retrieval and is able to handle more than thousand requests per second with dozens of concurrent requests. If pycurl is not available palb will fall back to Pythons urllib2.
