I've been hearing a lot of good things about jmeter.

If you have the machines to run it, jMeter is awesome. It's a really feature-rich tool, so the learning curve is a little steep, but it's well worth it. We played around with a few of the cloud-based tools and found they weren't flexible enough for what we needed, so we ended up using jMeter. Now that I've taken the time to learn it, it's my go-to.

Give http://www.loadui.org/ a try - I've been pretty happy with it. It lets you set up various tests/scenarios visually, not sure about scripts.

Hey,

We've used loadimpact.com which works pretty well. Don't recall if they let you run scripts.  Load impact let you choose whether you'd like to run as 'virtual user' (think distributed apache bench) or in 'simulated browser mode' whereby they parse the page source and request linked assets as per a regular browser.  They aren't cheap (IMHO) mind you.

We also used blitz.io for smaller stuff which worked well enough.

Happy hunting,
@drpep

Anyone know of any great load testing tools? I'd prefer javascript running, but not a deal breaker.  Something like bees with machine guns ( https://github.com/newsapps/beeswithmachineguns) but that can run scripts (like capybara or something?)

I'm looking at trample ( http://jamesgolick.com/2009/6/4/introducing-trample-a-better-load-simulator.html ) but it's been 4 years and it's designed to be run from a single box instead of spread out.
