Apache performance/stress/load testing.

Hello all,

I need some open source or  proprietary tools to measure performance of my Apache webserver.

The following things need to be checked.

1) Performance
I need to check the performance against requests. If the requests are increased then how the performance would get reduced etc.

2) Load & Stress
The load apache puts on memory and CPU needs to be checked when there are huge number of concurrent requests.

Please let me know which tools you guys use/recommend.

Thanks
