OWASP HTTP Post Tool
Switchblade is a tool used to conduct load testing on a web application running IIS or Apache sponsored by ProactiveRISK
The OWASP Testing Guide v3 (Section 4.9) Denial of Service Testing outlines numerous areas of Denial of Service. This QA tool was created to allow you to test your web applications to test availability concerns from Layer7 DoS HTTP GET and HTTP POST denial of service attacks and SSL half connects
This tool is used to test production load of systems to reach capacity.
It should NOT be used from a coffee shop to cause denial of service conditions to websites that you do not own.
