Usage

Hummelflug in a Nutshell

At first you want to set up your swarm:

    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>

Tired of attacking peaceful servers?

    php hummelflug down

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.

You have been warned.
