Siege

http://www.joedog.org/
HTTP regression testing and benchmark utility

Siege is a free and open source regression test and benchmark utility that lets Web designers measure the performance of their code under a heavy load of hits. 'Siege' lets the user hit a server with an adjustable number of concurrent users, thus placing the server "under siege." It can stress test a single URL with a user defined number of simulated users, or it can read many URLs into memory and stress them simultaneously. The program reports the total number of hits recorded, bytes transferred, response time, concurrency, and return status. Most features are configurable with command line options, which also include default values to minimize the complexity of the programs's invocation.
