http_load - multiprocessing http test client version of 12mar2006
http_load runs multiple http fetches in parallel, to test the throughput of a web server. However unlike most such test clients, it runs in a single process, so it doesn't bog down the client machine. It can be configured to do https fetches as well.
See the manual entry for more details.

To build: If you're on a SysV-like machine (which includes old Linux systems but not new Linux systems), edit the Makefile and uncomment the SYSV_LIBS line. If you're doing SSL, uncomment those lines too. Otherwise, just do a make.
