NAME
       swamp - SSL/TLS load-tester based on OpenSSL

SYNOPSIS
       swamp -connect <address> [options]

DESCRIPTION
       swamp is a utility that can be used to test and/or benchmark SSL/TLS
       servers. It is quite configurable and allows for various different
       characteristics of the server's behaviour to be tested.

OPTIONS
       -connect address
           Configures the address to which swamp should connect for outgoing
           connections, using the syntax defined by the libnal API. For
           connecting to TCP/IP addresses, the syntax is illustrated below
           (you may use an explicit IP address or a host name);

               # swamp -connect IP:192.168.0.1:443
               # swamp -connect IP:www.localnet:443

           To connect to an SSL/TLS server on a unix domain socket, the syntax
           is;

               # swamp -connect UNIX:/path/to/some/socket

       -h, -help, -?
           Any of these flags will cause swamp to display a brief usage
           summary to the console and exit cleanly. Any other flags are
           ignored.

BUGS
       This man page is utterly incomplete.

AUTHOR
       Swamp was designed and implemented by Geoff Thorpe. Steve Robb has
       contributed numerous tweaks and fixes along the way too. To consolidate
       resources and provide an improved framework for ongoing development,
       the swamp utility was made a component of the distcache project in 2003
       (swamp happens to be the ideal tool for testing distcache's most common
       usage - secure web servers).
