If you're looking to run a load test, we've got a few different options. You can use some of our load testing tools or you can use a third party load testing tool. In terms of third party load testing tools, there are a few different options. You can use free tools, or you can use paid load testing tools.
One of the best free load testing tools is Apache JMeter. It's free, open source, and able to perform a lot of different server load testing functions. There are a lot of different things that you can do with JMeter, which is one of the reasons why it's become so popular and become so well-adopted.
In terms of other load testing tools, LoadView and HP's LoadRunner are two of the best commercial paid options. LoadView is mainly for smaller and medium load testing jobs, where LoadRunner is pretty much only for larger load testing jobs. Depending upon what you need, you may want to choose one over the other. For example, if you're looking to load test a website that gets 1000 visitors per day, LoadView will do a very nice job of doing this. However, if you're looking to load test a large corporate with with a lot of infrastructure, you may want to go with something like HP's LoadRunner as they are really set up to handle enterprise solutions and test on a large scale, enterprise level.
 
Load Testing With Us - Why You Should!

If you haven't done load testing on your web server or website, you're missing out on a lot of different opportunities in terms of making your site faster. At the end of the day, if you aren't doing load testing, you don't know that your web hosting is stable. It's very important to known that your site can handle the level of visitors who are coming to your site without crashing. And the only way to know this for sure is to do some load testing on your site. In the next section, we'll take a look at what load testing is, how it works, why it works, and more.

What is Load Testing?

If you're going to do load testing, you should at least understand what it's all about. Essentially, load testing is the process of applying a specific amount of load to a web server or website to find out how it reacts. If it slows down, then that's not a good thing, but you can at least plan for what needs to be done to improve speed. If it doesn't slow down, then you may want to increase the load until it does slow down and you can find out where your limits are in terms of server capacity.

 

What About Stress Testing?
Stress testing is different than load testing, but closely related. The biggest difference between stress testing and load testing is the end goal. In load testing, the goal is to find out how a website performs under expected load. In stress testing, the goal is to break or crash a website to in order to find out the breaking point, which can help with capacity planning and making sure that the website can handle the level of load.
