Dead-simple for my part:
cat >> ~/bin/stresstest.sh <<EOF
curl -s --socks5-hostname localhost:9050 http://eujuuws2nacz4xw4.onion/ > /dev/null
chmod +x ~/bin/stresstest.sh
I then ran twelve instances of the above script in
parallel (continuously in a `for ((;;))` loop) (four per host, three
hosts each with their own Tor instance). This was done for just over 72
hours from Jul 2 04:00 UTC. I'd meant to add some simple
metrics-gathering/reporting of request time and the like (or maybe just
Torify something like `siege`) but ultimately didn't get a chance.
