goldeneye - HTTP DoS test tool
goldeneye <URL> [OPTIONS]
GoldenEye is a HTTP DoS Test Tool. This tool can be used to test if a site is susceptible to Deny of Service (DoS) attacks. Is possible to open several parallel connections against a URL to check if the web server can be compromised. The program tests the security in networks and uses 'HTTP Keep Alive + NoCache' as attack vector.
-u, --useragents File with user-agents to use. Default: randomly generated. On Debian systems, there are lists of user-agents at /usr/share/goldeneye/useragents/ directory. -w, --workers Number of concurrent workers. Default: 10. -s, --sockets Number of concurrent sockets. Default: 500. -m, --method HTTP method to use. Values: 'get', 'post' and 'random'. Default: get. -d, --debug Enable debug mode [more verbose output]. -h, --help Show this help.
GoldenEye can create several concurrent workers and it can use all local resources. Choose good parameters to avoid local problems.
