Information on load testing


I am looking for information (web pages, articles, books,...) on load testing.

I am especially interested in concepts an theory as well as experiences and examples of applications beyond simple web/HTTP stress testing.

What are your favourites?

This is a pretty broad question.
What is your platform and application type?

There are a lot of techniques on unix that differ slightly from windows. And also there are techniques for applications versus web apps. Language is another factor. There are a lot of tools for java, .net, etc... that help in isolating parts of your applications.
