Open Source Load Testing Tool
Recently, a friend asked if I would be interested in learning about Erlang, a functional programming language, for a project he was thinking about. Essentially, it's a language that lives on concurrency and recursive algorithms. Then it seemed obvious that it would be a great platform for performance testing.
And a quick search resulted in finding Tsung (http://tsung.erlang-projects.org/). It supports HTTP, WebDAV, SOAP, PostgreSQL, MySQL, LDAP and XMPP/Jabber. Give it a try and see if you find it useful.
