Load testing and benchmarking utilities

Your web server under stress

There are times you need to do some testing and check the performance of your website.

I use two tools, ab and siege. Both can be easily installed in linux boxes, they are available on the repositories.

They work much the same, both are command line utilities, there are parameters for the URL you want to test, how many request per user, and the number of concurrent processes.
