Load test your web application with Apache JMeter

Conclusions

Apache JMeter is an easy-to-handle tool for performing simple load tests. JMeter is also powerful enough for larger distributed load tests. However, users must rely on special external tools, such as Excel or matplotlib, for evaluating the tests and graphically processing the results.

The templates, examples, and documentation [8] that accompany the software will help you get started. You'll find Apache JMeter is a reliable and sensible alternative to commercial load-testing tools for web applications.
