My Siege version is:
4.0.2 and ubuntu : 16.04 Siege is installed in cd ./.linuxbrew/Cellar/siege/4.0.2/etc/
I couldn’t make a load test more than 255 and getting a warning message in below you can see.
siege -c1000 -t5m http://192.168.1.11:8080/ WARNING: The number of users is capped at 255. To increase this limit, search your .siegerc file for 'limit' and change its value. Make sure you read the instructions there... ================================================================ ** SIEGE 4.0.2 ** Preparing 255 concurrent users for battle. The server is now under siege... HTTP/1.1 403 1.50 secs: 819 bytes ==> GET /kiosk/start HTTP/1.1 403 1.50 secs: 819 bytes ==> GET /kiosk/start HTTP/1.1 403 1.51 secs: 819 bytes ==> GET /kiosk/start HTTP/1.1 403 1.52 secs: 819 bytes ==> GET /kiosk/start
so on ctrl+z
Then I edited siegerc file:
sudo vim siegerc
verbose = true color = on quiet = false show-logfile = true logging = false limit = 3000 protocol = HTTP/1.1 chunked = true cache = false concurrent = 3000 connection = close
Even after restarting my machine, still getting the same warning message and loading only my 255 tests.
What should I do, If I want to run more than that?
