So I’ve been hunting for a way to stress test a web application and
haven’t been terribly satisfied so far.
I’d really love something where I could define a script that
determined the way an agent would behave. Basically a set of
requests where each request had the potential to use information
contained in the return of a previous request.
My brain is slowly churning around the possibilities of putting
ruby’s benchmark.rb, mechanize, maybe drb to manage multiple test
hosts… Some sort of ruby DSL would be sweet. But before I get
too ahead of myself: Does anyone here know of a tool does this?
I’m looking at JMeter right now. It at least allows for assertions
on HTTP requests as part of an agent script, but I don’t see any
facility to do computations on the returned content from a previous
Thanks in advance,
