In this article I given step by step information about How to install siege on Linux box. I given the full commands and there output with full description.

How to install siege on Linux box

ABOUT SIEGE – Background
Siege is an http load testing and benchmarking utility. It was designed to let web developers measure their code under duress, to see how it will stand up to load on the internet. Siege supports basic authentication, cookies, HTTP and HTTPS protocols. It lets its user hit a web server with a configurable number of simulated web browsers. Those browsers place the server “under siege.”

PLATFORM SUPPORT
Siege was written on GNU/Linux and has been successfully ported to AIX, BSD, HP-UX and Solaris. It should compile on most System V UNIX variants and on most newer BSD systems. Because Siege relies on POSIX.1b features not supported by Microsoft, it will not run on Windows. Of course you can use Siege to test a Windows HTTP server.

Download siege from following URL or Using following command
[kapil@kapil-pc ~]$ wget ftp://ftp.joedog.org/pub/siege/siege-latest.tar.gz
[kapil@kapil-pc ~]$ tar xzf siege-latest.tar.gz
[kapil@kapil-pc ~]$ mv siege-2.69 siege
