Web Stress Tool

Today I have been trying to web stress my development website using ACT from Microsoft. I am using Visual Studio 2005 Professional, and while taking a look to find this precious tool that was readily available in the previous version VS.NET 2003. I couldn’t find it. (uh!!! did i forget to install it ???? ) checked out but nothing done, checked on the web and reach a forum post which said. Application Test Center is no more available on VS.NET 2005, you can buy a new licence of VS.NET Team tester to to be able to use some stress tool. Ok how nice 🙂 marketing strategy…

Anyway, i have been wandering around the web to find a proper web stress/load tool to be able to test my web developments. results have been pretty deceiving… could not find a proper tool for testing ASP.NET Websites. After some time i came up on sourceforge. to find this tool : WEBLOAD (Open source performance testing) which is the open source version of the recognised Radview Webload.

I’ll be now trying this tool and then give some feedback soon after.
