A pretty cool tool to test how your site handles under load

Although I no longer have acess to Loadrunner, I found this site which looks pretty cool to load test your site: http://loadimpact.com

They offer a free load test for up-to 50 concureent users, any larger testing then you have to pay for the service.

For some reason it does not run on my cs cart site it runs on oscommerce sites and wordpress but has some kind of difficulty with cs cart sites… anyone not able to load test?

I did test my CS. No problems whatsoever. I have my catalogue and products in static html - SEF enabled. Nice tool.Thanks.

Seems pretty cool.


From test:

Clients 10 20 30 40 50
Delay (s) 11.9 13.5 15.6 22 31.2

Restart my MySQL server before test.

Number of sql queries from test.

316,338 queries have been sent to the server.

Total ø per hour ø per minute ø per second
316 k 875.34 k 14.59 k 243.15

Wow, lots of database queries.

What shows up a red under phpmyadmin runtime info. Red means bad.

Handler_read_rnd 6,501

Handler_read_rnd_next 64 k

Created_tmp_disk_tables 5,398

This is really a great tool. Thanks for the share.

Great tool.

Been testing a few servers lately.

Here’s a new server I’m testing.

Had great response time, until 40 concurrent users.

Under 5 secs, then shot up to 53 secs!

Again, this is on a very low memory server. Only 376MB or RAM.

Clients 10 20 30 40
Delay (s) 4.43 4.41 4.57 52.9317

Same server as above, but using NGINX instead of Apache.

Clients 10 20 30 40 50
Delay (s) 4.88 4.78 4.76 4.96 5.05
