Part of your requirements are met by my experiences with jmeter available
from We have setup a csv file with 1,000 users that we choose
on a random basis to login into our CMS system and post a forum or a comment
as well as doing anonymous web browsing at the same time. We set it up on
four virtual zones on a Sun system that was able to bring any server / CMS
system to its knees. It could post login with any of the randomly selected users
as well as post random text and the timer between logins could be set to
a random range as well.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a free performance/load testing tool for a web application?

Some of the things I'm looking for are:

���preferably I want something distributed
each virtual client can use a different ip address (maybe from a pool of IP's)
it can read random data from a text/csv file and post to a form
preferably I can use a proxy to record the steps that each virtual client will playback rather than writing code

If anyone has any suggestions that would be great!
