SIEGE is an http regression testing and benchmarking utility. It was designed to let web developers measure the performance of their code under duress, to see how it will stand up to load on the internet.

Siege project lets the user hit a webserver with a configurable number of concurrent simulated users. Those users place the webserver "under siege."

The duration of the siege is measured in transactions, the sum of simulated users and the number of times each simulated user repeats the process of hitting the server.

Thus 20 concurrent users 50 times is 1000 transactions, the length of the test.

What's New in This Release:
This release has several bugfixes and refinements.
It includes several additional customizations.
