Need tool to benchmark/stress test a web form performance (script for user entries and actions)
Posted on 2013-10-25
Hi fellow experts,
I have written a web application and would to see how it performs when a dozen users access it at the same time. Basically, I want to simulate a user's entries into a form using a kind of script, copy that script to a dozen Windows PCs to simulate parallel accesses. (The users must enter data into forms and click on one or the other pull-down list or click buttons in pop-up boxes.)
Some years ago I had used iopus for that, but the tool needs to be installed and does cost money. Does anyone know of a more portable solution, e.g. a script engine that ideally requires no installation and is preferrably even free? Oh, and it must be Windows based, not Linux.
Thank you for your ideas
