Based off the awesome project beeswithmachineguns, but this uses containers.

Each container is run from a jess/ab image, which is just the apache benchmark utility.

If you pass in a cidr with -cidr and gateway with -gateway, containers will be given ips and have outbound traffic routed via that IP. This uses openvswitch and a super gross implementation of shelling out to ovs-vsctl & ip netns exec.

NOTE: Do not use this for evil. Consider yourself warned.
