Hummelflug is a utility for arming (creating) many bumblebees (micro EC2 instances) to attack (load test) targets (web applications).
+ PHP (>=5.5.9) with SSH2 extension
The caveat! (PLEASE READ):
If you decide to use Hummelflug, please keep in mind the following important caveat: they are, more-or-less a distributed denial-of-service attack in a fancy package and, therefore, if you point them at any server you don’t own you will behaving unethically, have your Amazon Web Services account locked-out, and be liable in a court of law for any downtime you cause.
git clone https://github.com/scheddel/hummelflug && cd hummelflug
sudo apt install php-xml
Rename the config.ini.sample to config.ini and adjust it to your needs.
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | sudo php -- --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=composer
php hummelflug create
Before you can attack your target you need to wake up your swarm:
php hummelflug up
Now you can attack your target:
php hummelflug attack <URL>
