Siege is simple load testing and benchmarking tool. Siege support GET and POST method to test your webservers through cookies, HTTP , HTTPS and FTP protocols. You can test single or multiple web urls in a single test .

Installation on Linux :

Download latest version Siege from official website https://www.joedog.org/siege-home/. Current latest version is “siege-3.1.0”  or https://www.joedog.org/pub/siege/siege-latest.tar.gz

Copy siege files into your project directory and compile it. In below example I have installed it under siege directory.

$ mkdir siege
$ wget http://download.joedog.org/siege/siege-3.1.0.tar.gz
$ tar zxvf siege-3.1.0.tar.gz
$ cd siege-3.1.0
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

If you have successfully installed siege then check your installation using “siege -C”

Usages :

Test Single Url:

siege -u www.domain.com -d1 -r10 -c10

Parameter Details

-d1 => Delay 1 second
-c10 => Number of concurrent request. (i.e 10)
-r10 => Number of repetition. (i.e. 10)

If we don’t pass -u then it will take url from default url directory (/usr/local/etc/urls.txt). You can check default directory by “siege -C”.

Output:

** SIEGE 3.1.0
** Preparing 5 concurrent users for battle.
The server is now under siege...done

Test Multiple URL:

Siege has support to test multiple url. Put all test url in siege url.txt default url.txt location is /usr/local/etc/urls.txt. You can verify siege url.txt location by using “siege -C”. Now you don’t need to pass -u parameter in siege command.

siege -d1 -r10 -c10

Example url.txt file

http://domain1.cmm/dir/file
http://domain2.cmm/dir/file
http://domain3.cmm/dir/file

Test random url with [-i] parameter

siege -d1 -i -r10 -c10

Siege Parameter

-V     –version VERSION, prints version number to screen.
-h     –help HELP, prints this section.
-v     –verbose VERBOSE, prints notification to screen.
-c     –concurrent=NUM CONCURRENT users, default is 10
-u     –url=”URL” URL, a single user defined URL for stress testing.
-i     –internet INTERNET user simulation, hits the URLs randomly.
-b     –benchmark BENCHMARK, signifies no delay for time testing.
-t      –times=NUM TIMES, number of times to run the test, default is 25
-t      –time=NUMm TIME based testing where “m” is the modifier S, M, or H no space between NUM and “m”, ex: –time=1H, 1 hour test.
-f      –file=FILE FILE, change the configuration file to file.
-l      –log LOG, logs the transaction to PREFIX/var/siege.log
-m    –mark=”text” MARK, mark the log file with a string separator.
-d    –delay=NUM Time DELAY, random delay between 1 and num designed to simulate human activity. Default value is 3

POST METHOD in Siege

To test url with post parameter change url.txt like below

http://domain1.cmm/dir/file POST param1=value1
http://domain2.cmm/dir/file POST param1=value1&param2=value
http://domain3.cmm/dir/file POST param=value
