OpenSTA: Free Web Load and Stress Testing Tool
By admin on Jul 28, 2008 in open source
OpenSTA is a distributed software testing architecture designed around CORBA, it was originally developed to be commercial software. The current toolset has the capability of performing scripted HTTP and HTTPS heavy load tests with performance measurements from Win32 platforms. However, the architectural design means it could be capable of much more.
As quoted from the website, the applications that make up the current OpenSTA toolset were designed to be used by performance testing consultants or other technically proficient individuals. This means testing is performed using the record and replay metaphor common in most other similar commercially available toolsets. Recordings are made in the tester’s own browser producing simple scripts that can be edited and controlled with a special high level scripting language. These scripted sessions can then be played back to simulate many users by a high performance load generation engine. Using this methodology a user can generate realistic heavy loads simulating the activity of hundreds to thousands of virtual users.
