h2load can generate HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2 traffic (and SPDY if built appropriately) . 

Traffic patterns are either:

* bulk requests for a single resource
* bulk requests for a list of resources
* timed requests, represented as a list of time offset/resource pairs. This list can be written by hand or generated by basic processing of a HAR capture from a UA (e.g. browser network capture).

Requests can be issued from multiple clients. Clients can either be created all at the start of a test run or created at varying rates - allowing for different ramp up gradients.

Documentation is available at https://nghttp2.org/documentation/h2load.1.html
