ASP.NET page testing

Hi experts,

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.

you're in luck since Visual studio 2010 "ULTIMATE" (ultimate is important!) contains stress test functionality:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vstudio/dd293540(v=vs.100).aspx. There's a bit of a learning curve but it does the job.

if you don't like the feel of it, you can also try Neoload: http://www.neotys.com/product/overview-neoload.html or one of the many cloud solutions out there.

that said, before load testing you may want to first scrutinize your webpage performance by doing a performance analysis/profiling: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms182372(v=vs.100).aspx
