I know there are several out there (MSWAS for example), but is anyone actually using freeware load testing software? If so, which are you using (a URL would be wonderful) and what scripting abilities are required? Pros and Cons?
Try www.opensta.org one thing I'm still try to figure out is how to get the unique id for each page e.g. something like the session id for future playback. Once I work out how to do that (without having to ask the developer) then I will be sorted. You see in most of the other tools you can parse the data that is returned from the server and find this but I'm having difficulty at the mo. But it's free check it out for yourself.
