Web Pounder is a web site stress tool. It can simulate between 1 and 1000 sessions - each session acts as a user navigating to and downloading each page of a selected URL.
Multiple intances of Web Pounder can be executed to multiply the stress factor. Running two instances simulates 2000 users, three instances - up to 3000 users, and so on...
Need to be used responsibly, Web Pounder can cause denial of service of a website due to it's high user count simulation.
Web Pounder - Web Site Stress Tool
Web Pounder is a multi-threaded .NET application that is able to simulate the traffic of a user navigating through a website as well as initiating downloads of each page to increase server stress.
Each session has details that allow the tester to determine average lag time in milli-seconds, determine a user count where the elapsed time of navigation begins to increase - server degradation, and this is an actual stress test against the desired web site, not a virtual server load tool.
Ideally the web site administrator would turn on the performance metrics to see which pages responded slowly, versus fast loading pages, etc.
Web Pounder is an electronic download. If you want a physical CD, one can be created. Price is $5.00, plus shipping and handling.
