       bench - http benchmark


       bench [-n requests] [-c concurrency] [-t timeout] [-k] [-K count]
               [-C cookie-file] [http://]host[:port]/uri


       bench  is  a  HTTP  benchmark  program that can fetch the same URL over and over again, or
       fetch several URLs (coming in from stdin).

       If you specify a URL on the command line, this URL will be fetch many times (specify  with
       -n,  default:  10000) with several connections open in parallen (specify with -c, default:

       You can specify a timeout (per request) in seconds with -t.

       The -k switch activates keep-alive mode.  In keep-alive mode, the TCP  connection  is  not
       closed  between requests.  You also have to specify how many HTTP requests can go over one
       TCP connection with -K.

       bench can also send one HTTP cookie per connection, as specified using a cookie file.  The
       cookie  file  is  read line by line, and each request gets the next line inserted into it.
       So each line should look something like this:

         Cookie: foo=bar

       If the end of the file is reached, bench restarts it at the beginning.
