Hi all,

I'm keen to develop a way to load test my rails application, as a way to
check if there are any bottlenecks (bugs, bad design) and that it will

Q1:  What's the most used load testing tool by Rails developers?    I
there are several web application load test tools out there, but are
any (open source/cheap) that are particularly suited to Rails for any

Q2:  Ideally the tool would pull server O/S stats to present along with
response stats (e.g. server CPU, memory etc).   I'm currently stuck
developing on Windows but host on Dreamhost (unix).  Which tool would be
recommended to access/present such detail as well?
