Has anyone across any free web-based load testing software? I'm sure there's at least one out there, just haven't been able to find it.
I would also settle for free non web-based software. I came across webperformanceinc.com/ which offers free software, however you have to purchase amazons cloud service to use it.
Apache comes with a benchmarking command: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/programs/ab.html
I'm not sure you can give it list of URLs to process -- but you could fire off several ab processes hitting various URLs for a more representative benchmark.
Is that kind of what you're looking for?
