       genhash - md5 hash generation tool for remote web pages


       genhash [options] [-s server-address] [-p port] [-u url]


       genhash  is  a  tool  used  for  generating md5sum hashes of remote web
       pages.  genhash can use HTTP or HTTPS to connect to the web page.   The
       output  by  this  utility  includes the HTTP header, page data, and the
       md5sum  of  the  data.   This  md5sum  can  then  be  used  within  the
       keepalived(8) program, for monitoring HTTP and HTTPS services.

       --use-virtualhost <host>, -u
              Specify the virtual host to send along with the HTTP headers.

       --verbose, -v
              Be verbose with the output.
