Synopsis

Description

tsung is a distributed load testing tool. It is protocol-independent and can currently be used to stress and benchmark HTTP, WebDAV, LDAP, PostgreSQL, MySQL and Jabber/XMPP servers. tsung-recorder can be used to record sessions (only for HTTP, WebDAV and Postgresql) that can be edited and replayed later by tsung

tsung-recorder is a proxy that records a session in the tsung native XML format; it can be used by your favorite client (browser in the case of the http plugin).

start
start the proxy recorder (listening port is 8090). By default the HTTP recorder is started. With the -p option, you can select another plugin. The resulting files will be created as ~/.tsung/tsung_recorderYYYMMDD-HH:MM.xml; if it doesn't work, take a look at ~/.tsung/log/tsung.log-tsunami_recorder@hostname
stop
stop the proxy recorder
record_tag value
add a string (comment or tag) while recording a session. This is useful for example to add transaction tag while recording a session.
