Load testing - Dynamics products

Hi,
Looking into any application, script, or other way to do a good load test on a Dynamics product (GP, NAV, AX).  

Often when an environment is in staging or testing phase the functionality is tested, and everything is confirmed to be working, but then when deployed to live where instead of the 15-20 users it had on it in test, it now has 150-200 users, we discover other issues when the system is under load.

Looking if anyone has any suggestions of ways to load test a Dynamics product as well as the SQL back end?

Also for AX I would use the new task recorder beta for load testing

Both seem to be good for documenting load, etc. but I'm looking more for something to actually GENERATE the load.

i.e. would be good to have a tool that has the ability to set:
- create new batch of 100 items every 10 seconds
- post batch every 15 seconds
- create 15 new inventory items per second
- generate trial balance once every 30 seconds

That kind of thing - to get an accurate idea of the performance when under load

sorry did not see your reply, with the new task recorder, you can record sets and replay to create load, or there is a SDK for VS to build up performance benchmarks, let me know your email address and will send a whitepaper

Will it allow us to record and replay multiple sessions at once?

Well you can create multiple macros with the exported data of live company an execute at the sametime on the test environment.
