Simple tools like wget and ab 
(http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/programs/ab.html) also work wonders 
if you're a bit creative in bashing your server with them.

Calling these from tight loops in shell scripts, started on many 
clients hosts at the same time, or from many terminal windows on a 
single client can already tell you a lot about how your site performs.

Of course, more sophisticated tools are very useful as well, but even 
these two simple ones help a lot, and they're quick and easy to start 
so you can use them very often when developing your app, instead (or in 
addition to) doing big tests when everything's supposedly done.
