simple load test tool

I want to do some very simple load testing on my web app.  Basically I'd like to queue up a list of urls and get some stats about average response times, %errors, etc.  Nothing fancy.

Any suggestions for a good tool to do this with?  I've looked at a couple that seemed like overkill.  I don't want to get bogged down dealing with features that I don't need.

There's one included in some versions of Visual Studio 2005.

Maybe this:


But I'm not sure it's in VS2005 anymore. It was in VS2003 Enterprise Edition.

This _might_ do _some_ of what you're asking...

Webspeed Simulator

And while it's not "simple", openSTA ( http://www.opensta.org ) will certianly do what you ask.  (and is actually relatively easy to use if you're just doing "record/playback" scenerios and inserting a few timers to gather stats..)

Unfortunately, while there are many promises of "simple load test" tools in my experience they're either one or the other.  Never truly both.  =^)

The simple out of the box is apachebench. That should give you the stats you need.

If you need to test heavy loads you need to move to something more like Tsung or a tool that will setup a cluster of machines to run the tests from.

If you need to complete forms and not worry that much about load testing Selenium is rather nice.

I also recall there now being a .net version of watir aptly named watin?
