Quick web spider and traffic generator

Project description


Spinneret is a web spider and dynamic load generator for testing, benchmarking, and warming caches.


git clone
cd spinneret
mkdir -p ~/.virtualenvs
virtualenv ~/.virtualenvs/spinneret
python develop

Generating a sitemap

spinneret spider --base_url http://localhost:8000

Because this can take a while I’ve included a sample sitemap.yaml that can be used to immediately generate traffic.

Using that sitemap to generate requests against a site

spinneret traffic --base_url http://localhost:8000 --inflight 100
