i need to load test a client/server application to see the max no: of clients that the server can withstand and also the database activity on the DB bcos of the load.
can u suggest me any tool which can be used to automate this scenario and test the application.
It would help if you supplied a brief overview of your architecture.
e.g what platform are you using what is your software developed under?
Generally though most of the commercial load testing tools from the likes of Compuware and Mercury will be able to support testing in most environemtents as the tools are multi protocol allowing recordings/captures to be made against most software.
