TL;DR the command you want is: git rebase --onto [the new HEAD base] [the old head base - check git log] [the-branch-to-rebase-from-one-base-to-another] And my main motivation to putting it here is to easily find it again in the future as I always forget the syntax.

Locust.io is a great tool for applying load in a controlled manner and measuring response. However, historically speaking nobody has really cared about a solo locust. They just aren't that concerning in the singular.

(Aside from the people you inevitably end up talking to who...

Due to this somewhat uncomfortable partnership, I am always interested in new tools for applying load to an infrastructure and monitoring the results. Locust.io is not exactly a new tool, but I have only recently begun...
