It usually needs a dedicate configuration file where all the services - the exchange and the (fake)bank - listen to URLs not subject to any reverse proxy, as say Nginx.

+.Sh DESCRIPTION
+.Nm
+is a command line tool to measure the time spent to serve withdrawals/deposits/refreshes.
+It usually needs a dedicate configuration file where all the services - the exchange and the (fake)bank - listen to URLs not subject to any reverse proxy, as say Nginx.
+Moreover, the benchmark runs on a "volatile" database, that means that table are always erased during a single benchmark run.

-
-.SH NAME
-taler.conf \- Taler configuration file.
-
-.SH SYNOPSIS
-.B taler.conf
-
-.SH DESCRIPTION
-
-The basic structure of the configuration file is the following. The file is split into sections. Every section begins with "[SECTIONNAME]" and contains a number of options of the form "OPTION=VALUE". Empty lines and lines beginning with a "#" are treated as comments. Files containing default values for many of the options described below are installed under $TALER\_PREFIX/share/taler/config.d/. The configuration file given with \-c to Taler binaries overrides these defaults.
