Hi Guys,
We've recently set-up a new hardware environment which hosts a website, the website is in ASP.NET and searches against a database which returns a results set.
 
The new hardware environment comprises of two windows 2003 servers, one SQL server and a CISCO load balancer which distributes to the two web servers.

I need to stress test this set-up especially the two web servers, how do i go about doing this? Is there any tools I can install? How do I find the servers maximum load capability? I would like to find the servers minimum medium and maximum load capabilities.

Thanks
Jay Eire

Ive used the following tools to stress test my servers:

With these tools you can stress test your Web server to see how it reacts when several hundred users access your application at peak times. These tools can also be used to test the server-side components for performance, locks, and other scalability issues. A Web application that relies on databases can also be tested on parameters such as concurrency, transactions, number of users, locks, pooling, and so forth.
