Hi Peter,

As you said bytes/sec and requests/sec are better metrics for load testing, then I hope to
know what the benchmark is for bytes/sec and requests/sec from your experience ?

jmeter will measure the requests per second. that isn't the same as pages
per second for a couple of reasons.

1. a page may have multiple images and stuff embedded
2. images are cached by the browser the first time it's loaded
3. not every page is the same, so page per second a poor measurement of load
4. bytes per second or requests per second is a better measurement
5. what happens when the pages change and a page ends up having more images?

loadRunner is a good product. Pages downloaded per second isn't all that
useful from a capacity and planning perspective. It is much better to
measure bytes/second and requests/second.

my bias opinion.
