Load testing tool survey

Posted in testing tool by testing in London on August 13, 2008


A good way to see how your Web applications and server will behave under high load is by testing them with a simulated load. We tested several free software tools that do such testing to see which work best for what kinds of sites.

If you leave out the load-testing packages that are no longer maintained, non-free, or fail the installation process in some obscure way, you are left with five candidates: curl-loader, httperf, Siege, Tsung, and Apache JMeter.Each of these tools has its advantages and disadvantages.

Each of these load testing tools has its advantages and disadvantages.All are documented well, offer a painless installation, and run reliably.
