Usually when I create a ASP.NET / SQL server web application I test the code for bugs before deploying. But I never really test for the handling of traffic to my site.
I'm using Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.
I was wondering is there some online tool or some software that you know of or a tool in Visual Studio 2010 that lets me test for how many hits a certain page on my Website can handle before it crashes?
How do you guys test for this? (I'm looking for an opinion, not necessarily a right answer)
See on an application that is deployed, it runs fine most of the time, but one day of the month when users rush to use a certain page, it crashes.
The page in question, is a asp.net page that queries a sql server table and dynamically generates a pdf and the users view the pdf in the web browser.
This page crashes on high traffic days but works fine on slower days.
Thanks for any input you have.
