I have been using Jmeter to perform some load testing. In your case you might like to take
a look at
. This will allow you to use a random item from your query list.

Subject: Benchmarking Solr

I am about to deploy Solr into our production environment and I would like to
do some benchmarking to determine how many slaves I will need to set up.
Currently the only way I know how to benchmark is to use Apache Benchmark
but I would like to be able to send random requests to the Solr... not just
one request over and over.

I have a sample data set of 5000 user entered queries and I would like to be
able to use AB to benchmark against all these random queries. Is this

FYI our current index is ~1.5 gigs with ~5m documents and we will be using
faceting quite extensively. Are average requests per/day is ~2m. We will be
running RHEL with about 8-12g ram. Any idea how many slaves might be
required to handle our load?
