siege.config man page


siege.config - builds a siege.conf template in the user's home directory.


siege's default settings are stored in $HOME/.siege/siege.conf. This utility will create a new siege.conf if one does not already exist. Generally speaking you should not have to run this command with siege releases equal or later to 4.0.0.

At start up, siege checks for a $HOME/.siege/siege.conf. If one does not exist, siege will run this command to create a new one then read that file to configure itself.


The format for invoking siege.config is this:

siege.config [no arguments]
