Subject RE: Tool for HTTP Request Stress Test
Date Fri, 17 Jan 2003 15:23:28 GMT
I have successfully used JMeter
(  It takes a little while to
get a test plan set up, but works pretty well.

A couple of suggestions:
1. Run it from a machine with 'lots' of horsepower (memory, processor,
bandwidth) as it does tend to drag the workstation down.
2. The swing component is (as usual) a hog.  I would suggest creating your
test plan using the GUI, then bump up the threads/iterations, save the test
plan, and run the final JMeter test from the command line.

I recently used JMeter to do some load testing between two Tomcat servers
(one on Linux, one on W2K).  I found I got better results when I ran them
from a high horsepower box instead of my workstation, as my PC couldn't keep
up with the threads.

Just my two cents.....
