There are tons of load testing tools, both open- and closed-source. Open-source tools are growing in popularity, and we use mainly open-source software (OSS) at Load Impact, so we thought it might be useful to take a deep look at the available options in a detailed open source load testing tool review. (We'll call this our version 1.0 review.)
How and where you execute load and performance testing is a decision that depends on a number of factors in your organization and even within the application development team.
