||Stress tests aim at testing the functionalities of a system when this system is heavily loaded for a given period of time or at peak time. The main goal of the test is to determine if the system is able to meet target availability
||Windows, Linux, Solaris, Mac
||WebLogic, WebSphere, Apache
||AppPerfect Load Tester is highly scalable load simulation software that helps you test your application's behavior under conditions of heavy usage. It is used primarily for load testing and capacity planning
||TestWEB is a powerful record-and-playback testing solution effective on any platform. It enables testing of entire iSeries-based e-business applications - from the web-based elements right through back office systems processes
||TestLOAD is the only iSeries-specific automated load testing solution. It simulates actual system performance as well as placing artificial load on the network, monitoring and capturing Batch activity, server jobs and green-screen activity.
||Windows, Linux and Unix
||J2EE, .NET, PHP, ASP, CGI
||NeoLoad simulates hundreds of virtual users on your web site, getting performance statistics and revealing errors under stress.
|Embarcadero Extreme Test
||Windows, Linux and Solaris
||HTTP, JDBC, MS SQL, Sybase
||Capabilities include capture/playback/scripting and test probes/agents that work with a wide variety of applications. Load can be generated against HTTP and JDBC, allowing testing of Web sites, Web-based applications, and relational database systems.
||Unix, Linux, Solaris
||All platforms that support perl
||Siege is an http regression testing and benchmarking utility. It was designed to let web developers measure the performance of their code under duress, to see how it will stand up to load on the internet. Siege supports basic authentication, cookies, HTTP and HTTPS protocols.
|Web Performance Trainer
||Windows, Linux and Solaris
||J2EE, ASP, .NET, PHP, ColdFusion, Java
||Web Performance Trainer is web load testing and web stress testing software and tools targeted at web sites that use standard technologies such as web forms, J2EE, ASP, .NET, PHP, ColdFusion, Java, etc.
|Microsoft Web Application Stress Tool
||Windows server, IIS
||The Microsoft WAS web stress tool is designed to realistically simulate multiple browsers requesting pages from a web site. You can use this tool to gather performance and stability information about your web application
||Windows, Unix, Linux
||Web Services, J2EE, and .NET
||Mercury LoadRunner is the industry-standard performance and load testing product for predicting system behavior and performance. Using limited hardware resources, LoadRunner emulates hundreds or thousands of concurrent users to put the application through the rigors of real-life user loads.
||HTTP and HTTPS
||Free load test application from ACME Labs to generate web server loads, from ACME Software
||FTP, SMTP, IMAP, JDBC, LDAP, Telnet and DNS
||PureLoad is a load testing tool that simulates hundreds of users executing requests against server based applications. Use PureLoad to verify that your application will meet the expected performance criteria. PureLoad reports quality and performance problems as well as detailed statistics gathered during a load test.
