Yes it does! You're right.  I still do have to get acquainted with it.

But note that this is just part of the problem for us.  Setting up the
test harness, with comparable conditions is perhaps the most manual and
tedious part besides watching the tests chug along.  So I think we
should as you suggest look into the right tool for SLAM'in the server :).

Perhaps we can break it apart and build a client side maven mojo for it.
  SLAMD I'm sure has some configuration to it as well.

What it doesn't do is load the

Very nice.  I'll have to tinker a bit.

Thanks for your recommendations.
