I'm interested in a load testing tool that not only gives a summary of best, worst and average times to exectute x iterations etc. but also a tool that gives the best, worst and average times for each page within the test script, in order to help identify bottlenecks and problem pages that take an eternity to load etc.
As anyone got any recommendations? we use the e-test suite but sadly this I've found to be an unreliable tool and in addition only gives summary times for the overall running of the test script and doesn't break it's results down per page.
OpenSTA allows you to set timers anywhere in the script, around each HTTP request or a grouping which represents a Page (ie with all the gifs etc). This tool will achieve your requirements regarding (client) response time granularity. http://www.opensta.org
