    Run benchmark for web server performance evaluation

    hi everyone,

    i need to simulate several number of users hitting my web server application in order to show the performance of my server and to show up where the bottlenecks are !

    I was checking Selenium either

    does anyone already worked with those application for benchmark ?
    do you have any idea how to perform such a test

    thx you very much, cheers

    You can download HP LoadRunner trial version

    You can download HP LoadRunner trial version and create a script to submit 100 of web request at same time.

    ok this soft seems to be a good solution,

    anyway I need first to make a model for a user (simulate the requests for one typical user to the server - HTTP request).
    Does LoadRunner have any model of that kind ? is it possible to record HTTP requests for my typical use (by recording my browser's request) and build such a model for one user ?
    afterward i only need to simulate that model several times to stress my web server and measure the performance of it (bottlenecks, and so on...).

    I don't really know what this software is able to simulate.
    Thank you very much ! Best regards

    It's a trial version. Load it up and see what it does. There is also documentation available.

    There's also Apache Benchmark (ab) but it's kinda crappy and I believe it's not supported any more?
    I used to run the oldest commercial Mumble host.

    yeah it's just to know what kind of model this software has for the user, if it is possible to customize this one or not ?

    ok i ve tested LoadRunner, pretty impressive in fact ! i ran a performance test only in a few hours for like thousands of users !
    Great, but it's not free and i cannot use this soft (much much expensive

    actually, i m checking OpenSTA which is an open source alternative to LoadRunner. Does anyone ever used this software ? Cause i ve got some trouble in launching a proper recording... Can you help pltz

    best regards ! thx
