Subject Re: Is Jmeter Scalable?

In a word, yes. There's lots of approaches you can take (commercial, open source, roll your
own) but the concept is well proven. I routinely run tests at higher volumes than you mention
with no problems. My personal approach is to run lots of jmeter processes as isolated silos
and group the results later - this is logically very scalable. But there's been significant
work lately on making the Distributed Mode more efficient so you may have success there.

In industry terms I personally know of several high profile companies that use JMeter as their
standard tool and there is also a video kicking around where Google talk about how they use
it for their load testing. In each case they opted to build their own framework; it's not
really that hard and the cost savings are stupendous.

it is.
